This is one position where it would be surprising to see anything really change heading into final cuts. With the Minnesota Vikings only carrying four total quarterbacks on the team’s roster at the moment, there will be at least one odd man out when the final roster is announced.
Here are the quarterbacks projected to be on the team’s 53-man roster:
Kirk Cousins returns to be the team’s starter after setting a career-high in passing touchdowns last year. With improved help from the offensive line and some great weapons around him, this could be the year where he brings the Vikings to the postseason.
As the primary backup, Sean Mannion was expected to be in a competition for the job. However, Mannion has already impressed greatly in camp and has experience on his side, meaning his grip on the QB2 spot has gotten quite tight.
Meanwhile, there has to be some disappointment when it comes to Kyle Sloter. While he hasn’t been having a great training camp, he’s unlikely to drop out of the top three spots at the position. For someone who claimed to be ready for the gig, he wasn’t able to elevate his position from last year.
