"I was on the defensive side of the ball, and I just remember Teddy with swag", Flowers said Friday. Will one - or two - of them remain in Purple next season, or will the Vikings bring in a fresh face under center? Why risk the fates' fury by changing things now? I think he'll stay healthy, but who knows. In stepped Case Keenum.
The Vikings' top three quarterbacks all are scheduled to become free agents March 14. All are pending free agents.
Davis and Nelson will both be free agents in March.
Bradford's biggest issue is the knee, which Zimmer described as a "degenerative" problem.
Bradford began this past season as the starter, but his own knee injury forced him to the sideline during a Week 2 win over the Bears. And Keenum, well, his future might be the most hard to predict.
There are health concerns with several of the options.

Treadwell, who turns 23 in June, played a slightly increased role in the Vikings offense last season following a one-catch rookie year. They thought Bridgewater was their guy after he led Minnesota to the playoffs as a sophomore. They're all great people. In his previous 24 starts, Keenum threw for 5,224 yards, 24 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.
"It's important for myself and [general manager] Rick [Spielman] and the organization to pick the right guy that is going to help us continue to move forward", Zimmer said, before quipping: "If we don't do that, then I'll probably be fired". "There's been no decisions made, unlike what's been reported". Finding a quarterback in free agency or through the draft are also possibilities.
With speculation swirling that the Vikings will make a run for Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, Spielman would only say, "We will always look at options". With so much in place, including the NFL's top-rated defense last season, they are an attractive suitor.
Vikings.com's Mike Wobschall caught up with a number of National Football League experts in Indianapolis, and almost all of them delved into the Vikings quarterback situation.
To make room for the enormous annual salary that is expected to be required to land Cousins, the Broncos have "examined scenarios" in which they create as much as $50 million in salary-cap space, said Robinson. But Zimmer has reason to question if that's sustainable.
But Spielman would go no further concerning the chances of Keenum being back. Again, it's going to come down to financial things, financial for them, and maybe some of them don't get to free agency.
