But according to the latest reports, the Vikings are currently leaning toward a free agent pickup. Since Kirk went down, Kevin O’Connell’s phone has been blowing up. He claims we wouldn’t believe some of the texts he has received.

Colt McCoy a name to watch

Conversations have been had with Joe Flacco, among others. But one name that has popped up among multiple league insiders is 37-year-old veteran QB Colt McCoy, who has a history in Kevin O’Connell’s offense.

McCoy would be a solid veteran pickup but we’d have to wait and see on whether or not he would be an immediate upgrade to Jaren Hall. The former Texas QB is a career backup and he hasn’t started more than 4 games in a season since 2011 for the Cleveland Browns.

He’s thrown for just under 8,000 yards in his career, including 34 touchdowns and 32 interceptions. Could these latest rumors be a smoke screen, as GM Kwesi-Adofo Mensah tries to get the price down on possible trade targets? The deadline is less than 24 hours away so we will find out soon.
