The Vikings worked out a number of quarterbacks on Tuesday, and it looks like Patrick Ramsey will be the guy to get a job offer.
Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports it’s likely that Ramsey will agree to terms with the team. Interim head coach Leslie Frazier mentioned on Tuesday that the team may have to start a veteran like Ramsey who they signed off the street. Tarvaris Jackson “doesn’t look good for this week,” according to Frazier.
Ramsey hasn’t received significant playing time since 2007, when he was Jay Cutler’s backup in Denver. He spent training camp with the Saints this season and part of the regular season in Miami.
Still, I’d bet that Ramsey could play fairly well if called upon. That’s mostly because he graduated from Tulane one year after me, so I’m biased.
I’d also bet that’s why Florio had me write this post in the first place.
UPDATE: Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Ramsey has agreed to terms.
