The Vikings apparently decided Christian Ponder didn’t need a veteran mentor.
At least not one they already had.
The Vikings have released quarterback Sage Rosenfels, according Aaron Wilson of Scout.com. Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com reported that Rosenfels is owed $500,000 in guaranteed base salary, along with a $50,000 workout bonus.
The move leaves the Vikings with just Ponder, Joe Webb and McLeod Bethel-Thompson at quarterback.
Unless they have a move cooking for a different backup, that’s a dangerously thin group.
