Freeman joins a crowded quarterback depth chart with Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel. Minnesota’s quarterback situation has been lackadaisical thus far, and the Vikes are hoping Freeman can deliver a spark.
In Tampa Bay, Freeman was often inaccurate and, by the end of his tenure, was in a constant battle with his coaches. Minnesota is a fresh start, but he has to beat out Ponder and Cassel before he seizes the starting reigns.
