Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer hopes quarterback Teddy Bridgewater remains with him at the NFL franchise amid doubts over his future.
The Vikings enter the 2018 offseason with plenty of uncertainty at quarterback and Zimmer knows it. Neither 2015 starter Bridgewater, 2016 starter Sam Bradford nor 2017 starter Case Keenum is under contract for next season.
" Zimmer said at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Thursday. "We have a lot of question marks.","It's really the $64, can Teddy get back to where he was,Womens Michael Thomas Jersey,000 question for all three of those guys. Can Sam stay healthy, can Case do what he did again
he entered 2016 with a lot of optimism,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey,Bridgewater was a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2014 and was named the NFL Rookie of the Year. Following a Pro Bowl season in 2015,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, but a career-threatening knee injury cost him the season and most of 2017.
"I love Teddy. I've said that before. He is a competitor; he's got the heart of a Lion," Zimmer said. "I'm hopeful for Teddy. I hope he has an outstanding career and I hope that it's with me."
877 yards with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.,Following Bridgewater's knee injury, the Vikings traded for Bradford, who went on to lead the NFL with a 71.6 per cent completion rate and threw for 3
but his own knee injury forced him to the sidelines during a week-two win over the Chicago Bears. Enter Keenum,Bradford began this past season as the starter, who was brilliant in helping lead the Vikings to an NFC North title and a berth in the NFC championship game.
so it's important that we don't lose the defensive part of the game because we keep the game close. So all these things become a factor.","We have to figure out what is the best scenario for us with these three guys, and I want to make sure with our team that we continue to build and improve,Authentic Michael Thomas Jersey," Zimmer said. "We've won 40 games in the last four years because we've had a good football team,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey, continually improve on defense... We're 30-4 when we score 21 points
Zimmer said bringing back one or all of the three quarterbacks is "definitely" under consideration,Womens Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, but the Vikings are also vying for the services of Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins.
" he added. "But I feel very confident really in all three guys. I love all three of them. They're great people. I love how they work. They understand how we do things there as a team and the way we go about our business.",Authentic Landon Collins Jersey,"After we get here, after we get done looking at some of these young draftable guys, so we'll kind of sit down and figure out the direction we're going
don't get to see him play in real,Zimmer continued: "Teddy is a guy that two years ago played fantastic. We thought he was a very ascending player. Obviously has a terrible knee injury, live action in basically two years. So there's the question with him.
so you go back and look at his track record.,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey,"The question with Sam is two years ago he plays in 15 games, plays well. This year, starts, he plays in one game and gets hurt
"You go back with Case. He plays outstanding this year, and you go back and look at what he's done in the past and what he's done this year. Then really what we have to try to do is figure out what is the best scenario for us and understanding that trying to answer these questions on these three guys and try to go from there.
"So that's with[general manager Rick Spielman] and myself and[executive vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski] and how it affects the salary cap and how it affects the rest of our football team."
