Following his recent reported departure from the Los Angeles Chargers, the Minnesota Vikings have been listed by Sportskeeda's Andre Castillo as a possible landing spot for former TCU quarterback Max Duggan.
Duggan was selected by the Chargers in the seventh round of this year's NFL Draft after having a magical college season at TCU in which he threw for 3,698 yards and 32 touchdowns in addition to rushing for 423 yards and nine scores in 15 games.
Duggan shined on the national stage last season as well when he helped TCU get a 51-45 win over Michigan in the College Football Playoff semi-final. In this victory, he threw for 225 yards, rushed for 57 yards, and accounted for a total of four touchdowns (two passing, two rushing).
Duggan's impressive performance at TCU in 2022 resulted in him finishing second in last season's Heisman Trophy voting and winning the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year award.
Unfortunately, his success in college didn't result in him being one of the first quarterbacks selected in the 2023 draft. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound signal-caller ended up being the 14th and final quarterback drafted this year.
In two preseason appearances for Los Angeles this summer, Duggan completed 6 of his 12 pass attempts for 34 yards and one touchdown while also rushing for 71 yards on 10 carries.
As far as him ending up with the Vikings, it's possible that they could sign him to their practice squad if no other team claims him on waivers. But it doesn't seem likely that Minnesota would bring him in to replace one of their current backups on the roster, Nick Mullens or rookie Jaren Hall.
