Vikings trading for Trevor Siemian to back up Kirk Cousins
The Vikings spent a pile of money on a starting quarterback, but all three of theirs left in free agency so they needed a backup.
They’ve apparently found one via trade.
Having a backup with 25 NFL starts who is making $705,000 this year is a good thing when you’re dropping $86 million guaranteed on Cousins.
The deal is apparently for a late-round pick, which seems like a fair return for the former Broncos seventh-rounder, who was displaced by Case Keenum and the possibility the Broncos will draft another one fifth overall to go with former first-rounder Paxton Lynch.
