Source: Vikings never gave Kyle Sloter a chance to win the No. 2 QB job

Well before the Minnesota Vikings waived him last month, the team seemed to already know that the young quarterback wasn’t going to be a part of their 2019 roster. Back in 2017, the Minnesota Vikings paid a premium to add rookie quarterback Kyle Sloter to their practice squad. Sloter became available after the Denver Broncos […] Source: Vikings never gave Kyle Sloter a chance to win the No. 2 QB job - The Viking Age - The Viking Age - A Minnesota Vikings Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Cards Should Open Roster Slot for Sloter

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports Photo Caption: QB Kyler Sloter passing for the Broncos in a 2017 pre-season game versus the Cardinals. QB Kyle Sloter to the Cardinals seems like it was meant to be. For starters, if Kyle Sloter wasn’t on the Cardinals’ radar before the 3rd week of the pre-season—-then watching him, a young, athletic, strong armed QB with a “K” name wearing #1, lead the Vikings to a 4th quarter win over the Cardinals’ on a day where the only other QB who shined was Kyler Murray—-I mean you might as well have put a neon sign on his jersey that said: SIGN...

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ The turnover along the practice squad for the Arizona Cardinals has already started. The team announced today that they have released quarterback Drew Anderson and wide receiver A.J. Richardson from the practice squad.

Then, the weird announcement of Kyle Sloter joining the Arizona Cardinals practice squad made everyone raise an eyebrow. So, now Anderson and Richardson are on...

Breaking down the Vikings roster

Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports Some thoughts on the current 53 players A short while ago, th Minnesota Vikings announced their initial 53 man roster. Let’s take a look. Offense (25) QB: In: Kirk Cousins, Sean Mannion Out: Jake Browning, Kyle Sloter Thoughts: I’m surprised the Vikings went with only two QB’s here. I am not surprised at the near-mythological status people gave Sloter and their reaction to his release, because that’s what we do with third string quarterbacks here in Minnesota. Am I kind of bummed they released Sloter? Yeah, I like his attitude, but at the end of...
