Vikings sign a quarterback and waive RB Kevin Monangai

The Vikings signed fourth-year quarterback Brad Sorensen on Saturday. Sorensen, 28, has not appeared in a NFL game. He was a seventh-round pick by the San Diego Chargers three years ago and has also spent time with the Tennessee Titans. Sorensen (6-5, 230) last played a year ago in the preseason, completing 38 of 69 passes for 336 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. The move comes two days after starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was a surprise sit for a preseason game in Seattle. He’s reportedly dealing with a sore shoulder, which led to backup Shaun Hill starting the game....

49ers second depth chart vs. Broncos is same as first

The San Francisco 49ers PR department released another depth chart for preseason Week 2. Here it is. The San Francisco 49ers released their second depth chart of the preseason earlier this week. I did not post it at the time, but some people were asking about it, so I figured I would drop it in here. I didn’t post it because it is the same as last week’s depth chart. You can view it down below. The depth chart is issued by the communications staff, and while it might include a little bit of input from the coaching staff, it is mostly just for show. The position coaches met with the...

49ers-Broncos preview: What are you looking for in Week 2?

The San Francisco 49ers face the Denver Broncos on Saturday, putting them halfway through the 2016 preseason. The team had some positives to take away from their preseason opener against the Houston Texans, but there is plenty of room for improvement. The Broncos present strong challenges on both sides. Their quarterback situation is a question mark, but they have solid skill positions outside of the QB position. On the other hand, the defense is pretty loaded, with a chance to be the best in the NFL. The two teams will likely roll out their reserves for more overall snaps than their...

Stock Market Report: Seahawks

What should have been a ho hum pre-season game became enveloped in controversy and almost went into overtime Pre-season football isn't supposed to be filled with a lot of weirdness. It's supposed to be a time of the year where we focus on who's going to start, who's going to get cut, and the seriousness of any potential injuries. Tonight, though, we got weirdness, from the first snap. When Shaun Hill ran out with the first team offense, and the realization was that Teddy Bridgewater wasn't going to start, there was immediate reaction from Vikings fans all over the Internet--is Teddy hurt...

No Teddy Bridgewater, no problem for Vikings in preseason win

Shaun Hill was the surprise starter and led the team to a halftime lead

Teddy Bridgewater does not start against Seahawks; Xavier Rhodes hurt

Veteran backup Shaun Hill started at quarterback against the Seahawks. A Vikings spokesman said it was a “coach’s decision” to not start Teddy Bridgewater, who participated in all three practices this week. Coach Mike Zimmer will provide further details after the game, the spokesman said. Presumably, the Vikings held Bridgewater out of this second preseason game for precautionary reasons. We’ll see if there is more to the story. In other news, starting cornerback Xavier Rhodes injured his hamstring on Seattle’s first drive of the night and will not return to the game.
