The Vikings announced seven players signed to the practice squad, but the list doesn’t include quarterback Kyle Sloter. The former Broncos quarterback was on his way to the Twin Cities to sign his contract, which will pay him three times the minimum practice squad salary.

The Vikings chose Sloter over former University of Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner, who was waived Saturday. The team outbid Denver, Washington, Philadelphia and Atlanta for Sloter, according to Chris Tomasson of the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, by offering $20,000 a week.

The Broncos cut Sloter on Saturday, and the Vikings needed another quarterback after keeping only Sam Bradford and Case Keenum on their active roster.

Minnesota announced Sunday it signed defensive tackle Dylan Bradley, tight end Kyle Carter, running back Bronson Hill, receiver Cayleb Jones, linebacker Elijah Lee, defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo and cornerback Horace Richardson to its practice squad.

    It seems like they’re preparing for the very real possibility that Sam Bradford won’t be around next year.
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    With that O-line??? Sam may not make the second game! with a pre-season 1st team sack rate average of between 7-8 a game!
    This is going to be a pitiful year and RICK MUST GO!

  2. The only reason for Sam Bradford to re-sign would be if the Vikings are the only team that will pay him any money. That’s a very real possibility so he may very well be on the team next year. That’s assuming he doesn’t get killed this year. Also a very real possibility.
