The Minnesota Vikings are re-signing quarterback Brad Sorensen after releasing him yesterday. The injury to Teddy Bridgewater was significant and Sorensen understands the playbook.
At this point it was the best option for the team. Any other quarterback will have a hard time understanding the playbook, and with the season starting next week the team has to ensure they have a quality back-up ready to go.
He was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Sorensen redshirted at Brigham Young University, but transferred to Southern Utah to gain playing time. He started quarterback for the Thunderbirds from 2010 until 2012. He has the school’s all-time marks in passing yards (9,445) and touchdown passes (61). He also became the school’s first 3,000-yard passer in a season, which he did all three years he played at SUU.
