Vikings 'looking so hard' for a quarterback
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Christian Ponder's presence on the roster does not figure into the Vikings' quarterback plans. "We have to have a quarterback, so we are going to have to find some, and that is why we are out here looking so hard and why we'll continue to look in free agency," new coach Mike Zimmer said, per NFL.com. "We'll find a guy."

Minnesota could select a quarterback with the No. 8 overall pick. The Vikes also have met with Matt Cassel in an effort to re-sign the free agent.

Christian Ponder to stick with the Vikings, but ...
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said third-year quarterback Christian Ponder will remain with the team but also "sounded committed" to adding a young quarterback, ESPN reported. The Vikings aren't expected to re-sign quarterback Josh Freeman and fellow signal-caller Matt Cassel exercised an option to become a free agent. 

Ponder hasn't lived up to the expectations of a typical first-round quarterback. In nine games last season Ponder accounted for 11 touchdowns and 13 turnovers and lost his starting spot to Cassel.

Might be wise for Vikes to keep Christian Ponder
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Vikings don't view Christian Ponder as their quarterback of the future, but "even as inconsistent as he's been during his career, it might be wise for the Vikings to keep Ponder," reports the Minneapolis StarTribune. Ponder is the only quarterback on the roster now that Matt Cassel has opted out of his contract.

Minnesota wouldn't clear cap room by getting rid of Ponder. He's owed $3.2 million for 2014, but it's all dead money that will count against the cap regardless, the paper noted. If the Vikings don't bring back Cassel, who will have suitors in free agency, Ponder could serve as the temporary quarterback until the one Minnesota drafts is ready to play, the report said.

Norv Turner: 'We need a good young quarterback'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Vikings offensive coordinator said team brass is in agreement that "we need a good, young quarterback," reports KARE-TV. Turner, however, left the door open for Matt Cassel's return after Cassel opted out of his contract this week and called the team's quarterback situation "a process."

Christian Ponder is the only quarterback on the roster. Turner said he's been impressed with Ponder's ability to throw from outside the pocket but added Ponder must limit negative plays.

Report: Vikings expected to explore Christian Ponder trade
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Quarterback Christian Ponder is under contract for 2014, but "it seems likely the Vikings would try to get what they can for him in a trade," reports ESPN.com. The team's first-round pick in 2011 hasn't panned out.

In nine games last season, Ponder accounted for 11 touchdowns and 13 turnovers and lost his starting spot to Matt Cassel.
