  • Sean Mannion: Joins Seattle's practice squad

    The Seahawks signed Mannion to their practice squad Wednesday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Mannion spent training camp with Minnesota but was let go after the team traded for Nick Mullens. Mannion, a 2015 third-round pick, has been a serviceable backup during his career, appearing in 14 games across six seasons (split between the Rams and Vikings). However, he'll serve as an emergency option on Seattle's practice squad in case something happens to Geno Smith or Drew Lock.

  • Sean Mannion: Released by Minnesota

    The Vikings released Mannion on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Mannion and Kellen Mond were both let go Tuesday after competing for the No. 2 gig during training camp, leaving recently acquired Nick Mullens as the top backup behind Kirk Cousins. Mannion, a 2015 third-round pick, had a solid preseason, but it's unclear what kind of attention he'll receive as a free agent.

  • Vikings' Sean Mannion: Steady second preseason performance

    Mannion was 10-for-15 for 65 yards passing with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's preseason loss to San Francisco.

    Kellen Mond started the game but struggled by throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns. After Mond outplayed Mannion in the first preseason game, Mannion looked better in the second contest. The battle for the backup quarterback role looks even at this point and likely will be decided late in training camp.

  • Vikings' Sean Mannion: Fills in as starter

    Mannion got the start under center in place of Kirk Cousins (rest) in Sunday's preseason opener against the Raiders, going eight of 12 for 79 yards in the 26-20 loss.

    Mannion split reps with Kellen Mond (as expected), but it was the latter who was able to post the gaudier stat line (119 yards and two touchdowns), albeit against the Raiders' backup defenders in the second half of the exhibition. This is still undoubtedly Kirk Cousins' team, so Mannion and Mond will compete to be the veteran's backup in the coming weeks.

  • Vikings' Sean Mannion: Will split preseason reps Sunday

    Mannion and Kellen Mond will get a "50-50" split of reps in Sunday's preseason game against Las Vegas, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Mannion and Mond are in a tight competition for the backup role behind starter Kirk Cousins and their preseason performances will go a lot way to determining the winner. Cousins will miss the game after testing positive for Covid-19, but he was unlikely to play even if healthy. Head coach Kevin O'Connell did not say whether Mannion or Mond will start Sunday's game, however.

  • Vikings' Sean Mannion: Back in Minnesota

    Mannion re-signed with the Vikings on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Mannion, who started one game for the Vikings last season, now returns to the team to provide competition for the backup gig behind Kirk Cousins. That said, 2021 third-round pick Kellen Mond would appear the likeliest candidate to hold the No. 2 role, even if no more names are added to the quarterback room.

  • Vikings' Sean Mannion: Draws one start in 2021

    Mannion started his only appearance for the Vikings during the 2021 campaign.

    With Kirk Cousins on the COVID-19 list, Mannion drew the start -- his only appearance of the season -- for the Vikings in Week 17. He completed 22 of his 36 passes for 189 yards and one touchdown during the 37-10 loss to the Packers. He also added two rushing attempts for 14 yards. The 29-year-old is set to become a free agent this offseason, and rookie third-round pick Kellen Mond is expected to step into the primary backup role to Kirk Cousins next year, so it's unlikely that Mannion re-signs with the Vikings.
