This signing definitely can't hurt. Hopefully the Chrisitan Ponder era is finally over. Even if it is, Leslie Frazier will be the last one on Earth to admit it.

So which qb gets released? Seems like a trio of wannabe starters now....

I think this is a mistake and will only create issues within the team.

Don't give up on Thompson. Release worthless Ponder!

If Ponder is not the answer, then this is the move to make. If Freeman isn't good, then the Vikings dip into the QB heavy draft.

"He's Headed to MN" is not one word.

Bethel-T is gone and Freeman had 4000 yards and 27 touchdown passes last season, but it will take a little time to learn the playbook. The first book he will need to read is The ADD Child's Guide to Minnesota Wildli - hey! let's go ride our bikes!

Cassel should still be our starter this year. Freeman is not a bad QB if he can get his head straight. Without a doubt, Ponder is the weakest link as far as QB's our concerned on this team. I seriously believe Ponder is on a one way trip to out of here!

Ponder to the IR, Cassell starts vs. Panthers, Freeman starts the rest of the season starting on 10/21 vs. the Giants.
