The Vikings have made a move to solidify their quarterbacks room.

Minnesota announced on Tuesday that the team has signed Kyle Sloter to its 53-man roster.

Sloter essentially takes quarterback Sean Mannion’s spot as the third quarterback on Minnesota’s roster. Mannion, who is vaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 late last week.

Starter Kirk Cousins is unvaccinated. But as long as he continues to test negative for the virus, then is expected to start.
Sloter was previously Minnesota’s third quarterback from 2017-2018.

Minnesota also released tight end Brandon Dillon and receiver Damion Ratley from its practice squad and signed offensive tackle Rick Leonard to the practice squad.

  1. If Cousins stays negative through all this I’ll be amazed (not that it matters at this point). Maybe he has truly encapsulated himself in a plexiglass bubble.

  2. I can’t figure out why Sloter doesn’t catch on with a team. He lit it up every time they gave him a chance. Hopefully it’s a Kurt Warner/Doug Flutie thing, where coaches have a preconceived notion that a player isn’t good enough because he’s been labeled that way.

Hopefully it’s a Kurt Warner/Doug Flutie thing, where coaches have a preconceived notion that a player isn’t good enough because he’s been labeled that way_________________ I think you’re right that Sloter is the next Kurt Warner and the Vikings, Broncos, Cardinals, Lions, Bears, and Raiders were all wrong on him.

  4. I bet Sloter’s vaccinated. If I’m Mark and Ziggy, the first place I start with the major rebuild is ask “who wouldn’t get vaccinated?”, and send them packing..coaches, players, whoever. Too many that should be team leaders whose non-vaccinated status betrays the fact that they’re not really all-in.

  5. If both Zimmer and Spielman aren’t gone come January 10th, it’s time for the Wilf’s to sell the team.
