Minnesota Vikings Schedule could determine when we see J.J. McCarthy in 2024

A few weeks ago, the Vikings made the decision to select former Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy with the No. 10 pick in this year's NFL Draft.

Minnesota is not in a rush to get McCarthy out on the field, but it's still possible that the rookie could open up the 2024 season as the team's starting signal-caller. However, with the schedule now known, the Vikings might decide to wait a few weeks before throwing McCarthy into the fire.

If Minnesota believes playing in their first handful of games could potentially have a negative impact on the development of their young quarterback, then it wouldn't be surprising if the team kept him on the sidelines to begin the season.

The Vikings signed veteran signal-caller Sam Darnold earlier this offseason, and if McCarthy isn't ready for Week 1 next season, then the team is fully prepared to roll with the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback as their starter.

If Darnold does end up beginning the 2024 regular season as Minnesota's starter under center, and the team struggles with him running the offense, how long will Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell wait until he decides to let McCarthy play?

That will be the question on everyone's mind if Minnesota enters Week 1 next season with Darnold as their starting quarterback.
