Vikings GM Rick Spielman hopes to add another QB by Monday
Moments before undrafted rookie Joel Stave — suddenly the Vikings’ No. 2 quarterback — started against the Los Angeles Rams in the preseason finale at U.S. Bank Stadium, General Manager Rick Spielman resolutely vowed to address his uncertain quarterback situation rapidly but responsibly.
Spielman insisted the Vikings have complete confidence in 36-year-old Shaun Hill, who is expected to be their Week 1 starter after they lost Teddy Bridgewater to a season-ending knee injury. But Spielman also said the Vikings hope to add another quarterback by Monday, when they will begin their preparations for the Sept. 11 opener against the Tennessee Titans.
“All our options are open right now,” he said before Thursday’s 27-25 win.
