  • Vikings' Nate Stanley: Inks future deal

    The Vikings signed Stanley to a reserve/future contract Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The Vikings selected Stanley in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The Iowa product was unable to make the team and instead resided on the practice squad all season. The 23-year-old will compete to be Kirk Cousin's backup in 2021.

  • Nate Stanley: Cast aside by Vikings

    Stanley was waived by the Vikings on Saturday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The 2020 seventh-round selection was always viewed as a likely practice squad candidate, so this designation shouldn't be entirely surprising. Stanley certainly has plenty of tools to develop into an athletic quarterback and is expected to get that opportunity to grow on the Vikings' practice squad.

  • Vikings' Nate Stanley: Minnesota adds in seventh

    The Vikings selected Stanley in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 244th overall.

    Stanley (6-foot-4, 235) is a big and fairly toolsy quarterback, and he's arguably a bargain this late in the draft after starting three years at Iowa. The only problem with Stanley is that, after breaking out for 26 touchdown passes and six interceptions as a sophomore, he never really showed any improvement from there.
