Kyle Sloter – QB

Sloter has been a bit of an underground phenomenon for a few members of the Vikings’ fan base. Despite never appearing in a regular season game during his two years with Minnesota, some believe he can take over as the team’s No. 2 quarterback in 2019.

In order to do so, Sloter will have to beat out veteran Sean Mannion and recent undrafted free agent signing Jake Browning. Winning the competition over Mannion doesn’t seem like it should be too difficult for Sloter, but he may have a little more trouble holding off Browning.

Despite going undrafted this year, it appears that the Vikings feel strongly about the former Washington quarterback’s chances to make their 2019 roster. Minnesota even gave Browning $140,000 guaranteed in his contract, more than the $90,000 guaranteed Mannion got in his deal.

After tossing an impressive 43 touchdown passes in 2016, the former Washington signal-caller only threw a total of 35 scores during his last two seasons combined. Despite his dip in numbers, Browning still possesses a lot of potential to develop into a solid NFL quarterback one day.

His competition with Sloter and Mannion for the Vikings’ backup job behind Kirk Cousins will certainly be one of the top position battles to watch this summer.
