  • Browns' Kellen Mond: Claimed by Cleveland

    The Browns claimed Mond off waivers from the Vikings on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Mond was drafted by the Vikings in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft but failed to impress during his short time with the organization and was waived ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. However, he quickly found a new home with the Browns, who've dealt with a well-documented QB controversy over the last year. Currently, it appears like Mond will compete with Joshua Dobbs for the backup spot behind Jacoby Brissett, who'll operate as the starter while Deshaun Watson is suspended.

  • Kellen Mond: Waived by Minnesota

    The Vikings waived Mond on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Mond was drafted by the Vikings in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, but he's failed to impress during his short time with the organization. Sean Mannion outplayed Mond during the preseason, and the team recently traded for Nick Mullens, which left Mond as the odd man out. Due to his collegiate prowess, Mond figures to at least get a look on a practice squad during the 2022 campaign.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Struggles in second preseason game

    Mond started Saturday's preseason loss to the 49ers and was 10-for-20 passing for 82 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions.

    Round 2 of the backup quarterback battle went to Sean Mannion after Mond outplayed him in the first preseason game. Mannion was 10-for-15 passing for 65 yards in the second half, so he wasn't too much better. The battle for the backup role will likely be decided late in training camp.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Two TD passes in preseason opener

    Mond was 9-of-14 passing for 119 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's preseason loss at Las Vegas. He also had three carries for seven yards.

    Round 1 of the battle for the backup quarterback job went to Mond, who outplayed Sean Mannion (8-of-12 passing for 79 yards and no touchdowns). However, Mannion played in the first half and Mond played against lesser competition in the second half. The battle for the backup role likely will continue through the preseason. Mond improved significantly from last year, when he looked lost at times during the preseason.

  • Vikings' Kellen Mond: Listed as co-backup on depth chart

    Mond and Sean Mannion are listed as co-backup quarterbacks behind starter Kirk Cousins in Minnesota's first depth chart of the preseason released Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Mond and Mannion are in a battle for the backup quarterback role and their play in preseason will likely go a long way toward determining the winner. After struggling with COVID-19 during training camp his rookie year and not impressing in the preseason, Mond fell into ex-head coach Mike Zimmer's doghouse and was often a healthy inactive. Despite the poor start to his career, Mond could still beat out Mannion for the No. 2 role on the back up his draft pedigree and physical tools.
