Vikings could be kicking tires on Patrick Ramsey

With Brett Favre possibly heading to injured reserve and his top reserve possibly injured on Monday night, the Vikings could be adding another quarterback to the depth chart.

We’re told that one candidate is veteran Patrick Ramsey, a one-time first-round pick who could be getting a workout with the Vikings soon.

It would be the ninth team for which Ramsey has played since entering the league with the Redskins in 2002.  He also has spent time with the Jets, Broncos, Titans, Lions, Saints, Jaguars, and Dolphins.

Minnesota would also be Ramsey’s fourth team in 2010.

The former Tulane starter hasn’t played in a regular-season game since 2008.  He has a career passer rating of 74.9, with 913 attempts, 511 completions, 5,930 yards, a 6.5-yard average per attempt, 35 touchdowns, and 30 interceptions.
