Mike Zimmer says Sam Bradford has 'degenerative' knee issue

Rick Spielman: Vikings haven't made any decisions at QB

Which of the available free agents would be the best investment for coach John DeFilippo and the Minnesota Vikings?

The Vikings have already reportedly chose to let both Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater become unrestricted free agents.

Mike Zimmer didn't leave much to be read between the lines when talking to local media Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

There are a lot of factors at play here, but sort of questioning a guy like this to the public doesn't seem like the wisest move to me.

The Minnesota Vikings had one hell of a 2017 season.

After a solid 2016 season with the Dallas Cowboys, cornerback Morris Claiborne slipped up a bit in 2017 with the Jets but was still serviceable.

"I think he's going to get a lot of plays", Zimmer said.

"Laquon needs to get out of his own way", Zimmer said, via NFL.com.

"Any team that wants to draft me", Barkley said, "is a blessing to me". "I'll give him a hug and hope for the best for him".

Keenum led the Vikings to the NFC Championship game, a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, just a week after the Minneapolis Miracle against the New Orleans Saints in the Divisional round.

Cousins had 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 16 games with the Washington Redskins last season, and he completed 347 of his 540 pass attempts (64.3 percent) for 4,093 yards, averaging 7.6 yards per attempt. "So it's important that we don't lose the defensive part of the game because we keep the game close". "So all these things become a factor".

Zimmer was asked how tough it is to resist reaching for the "forbidden fruit", or Kirk Cousins, in free agency to solve his team's unique quarterback predicament. "We'll see. We've still got some time". But I feel very confident really in all three guys. "They're great people. I love how they work".

We're approaching that part of the National Football League offseason where things go from totally dead to everything happening at once.

One issue with Bradford is his left knee and the ACL he's torn twice. "That's the monkey wrench in the whole thing". Will Sam Bradford take less money and stay with the team, if he's healthy?

"Maybe it was because Tom Johnson played too many plays, maybe we didn't play Linval enough". So there's the question with him. In all, Cousins has logged 15 passing TDs inside the 10 in the past two years, one less than the figure he posted in 2015 alone.

"If you go with the right one and he does like you anticipate, then everything is good", Zimmer said. "Can Teddy get back to the player he was?" Despite many big names likely to stick with their current teams, there's still plenty who will be wearing different colours when training camps start rolling in August.

"The process that we're going through right now with Sam, Teddy and Case", Zimmer said, "(is) we're trying to determine exactly where these three guys are".
