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

Cleveland Browns: Case Keenum a valid option

Both Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer talked with the local and national media and every national reporter has been looking for an indication of which direction the Vikings will go. At least they weren't made to wait until the final minute - the 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles was not a close contest, and the fact that the Eagles went on to win the Super Bowl is a consolation of sorts. "Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves".

"In a flawless world, I would have loved to have been dressing". We will supplement it in free agency when we think there's an opportunity to get a significant player, but you never say you're one player away.

"The one thing I told [General Manager] Rick [Spielman] was, I said look, we've had a good team, that's why we've won 40 games".

Alex Smith was traded from Kansas City to Washington, essentially assuring Kirk Cousins becomes a free agent. National Football League vice president of communications Brian McCarthy said no decision had been made, and that a resolution would come in the next few weeks. "There are a thousand reports out there on how we're going to move forward".

"It's important we continue to keep putting pieces in place on defense. You should make a better catch when you're in contested situations.' Then I get yelled at by my wife: 'Be a dad'". "If we don't, I'll probably be fired".

In regards to Case Keenum, the man who replaced an injured Bradford and led the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game but is also set to hit free agency, Zimmer wasn't any more convinced.

Despite the concerns, Zimmer expressed confidence in all three in-house quarterbacks, stressing how crucial it is that all three know how the Vikings operate.

Other areas in the region that could experience flooding include West Montrose and areas downstream of the New Dundee dam. Stretches of US 52 are flooded, and backwater flooding closes portions of OH 221 and other secondary roads along creeks.

Spielman was asked a question that he loved to answer.

JD Spielman became an FWAA Freshman All-America wide receiver for the Cornhuskers last season. J.D. McKissic, Kerwynn Williams, Benny Cunningham, and Corey Grant are all interesting potential recruits.

The immediate follow-up was quarterbacks. The expectation is that his contract won't be rolled into the new league year after Bridgewater's 2016 knee injury caused him to begin the 2017 season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. He spent all of 2016 and most of 2017 rehabilitating.

Keenum helped Minnesota to a 12-4 record in his 16 starts.

If you want to read into it this way, Zimmer could be publicly driving down Keenum's value a bit here to help the Vikings out in negotiations.

But, when he's on and at full health, Bradford has proven to be a reliable pivot.

As it stands now, the Vikings won't have a QB on March 14, unless they sign one before then. Bridgewater is expected to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. After placing a franchise tag on Cousins last season, paying him almost $24 million, the Redskins signaled the end of his time in Washington when they traded for Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith.
