Found November 24, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter doesn’t believe the Vikings quarterback of the future is on their roster, which means they’ll look to next year’s draft to find one.  They were in the market last offseason, Vade, and they’ll be in the market once again. It’s tough to imagine that this team will be counting on any of the three quarterbacks on its roster now as its starter next season. The Vikings will be in search of one in the draft. The question is how high will they be picking and who will be there for them. Schefter also believes there could be some coaching changes on the horizon in Minnesota. As for the Minnesota coaching staff, we’ll get back to you at the end of the season. The Vikings keep saying no changes, but there could be plenty. We’ll just have to see. The Vikings would be dumb to not take a quarterback in the draft, since it will be loaded with quarterbacks. Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

PJD's Game 11 Recap: A Tie Sums up the 2013 Vikings Perfectly
