Trevor Siemian - QB

Team for 2023: Cincinnati Bengals

Irv Smith Jr. wasn't the only former member of the Vikings to sign a contract with the Bengals this offseason. Trevor Siemian also took his talents to the jungle of the AFC North.

After signing Kirk Cousins to a monster contract in free agency back in 2018, Minnesota sent a Day 3 draft pick to the Denver Broncos to acquire Siemian and make him the No. 2 guy on their quarterback depth chart.

Since Cousins never missed any time during the 2018 season, Siemian actually never appeared in a game in his one year with the Vikings. He was active for all of Minnesota's matchups in 2018, but he was just never on the actual field for a single snap.

Since his lone season with the Vikings, Siemian has bounced around the league, spending time with the New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints, and Chicago Bears.

Now in Cincinnati, Siemian is expected to enter the 2023 season as the backup behind Bengals starting quarterback Joe Burrow.
