Vikings GM says teams are 'asking for some crazy things' for a QB
The Minnesota Vikings are in need of quarterback depth — they know it and apparently other teams are looking to take advantage of it.
Now that Teddy Bridgewater has been placed on injured reserve after his devastating knee injury Tuesday, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman has been working the phones in the hopes of adding another quarterback.
But Spielman is not getting any offers to his liking. Not even close.
"People are asking for some crazy things," Spielman said, via USA Today. "People think we're desperate."
Spielman told the outlet before the Vikings' preseason finale Thursday that he will not mortgage the team's future in order to shore up the quarterback position. The Vikings were thought to be a Super Bowl contender before Bridgewater dislocated his left knee and suffered a torn ACL.
“Someday in my book, you can read about the bizarre things that I’ve been asked to give,” Spielman said. “But we’ll just have to wait and see, and maybe those expectations change a little bit more.”
Minnesota currently has QBs Shaun Hill, Joel Stave and Brad Sorensen on the roster.
