Minnesota Vikings News: Shaun Hill expected to start not Sam Bradford?

The Minnesota Vikings have decided to start at the quarterback position with Shaun Hill. After the unexpected non-contact injury to Teddy Bridgewater, the Vikings are hoping that they can still excel with another quarterback.

Bringing Sam Bradford to the roster is not a quick fix to run the offense. Hill has played in the preseason games and he knows more of the offense of the Vikings than the newly acquired Bradford, who could probably be the starter in the foreseen future.

Hill was productive in 2010 when he completed 61.8 percent of his passes for 2,686 yards and 16 touchdowns in 11 games with the Detroit Lions. He started his career with the Vikings from 2002-05 then transfered to San Francisco and played for the next four years from 2006-09. Hill then moved to Detroit from 201-2013 then landed to the Rams in 2014 before he was with the Vikings in 2015.

The Vikings believe that they have a better chance of winning next week while Bradford is getting acquainted with the offense.

With Adrian Peterson as the primary option, Hill’s job is to deliver the necessary passes when the game is on the line and if the opponent’s defense will clamp on their running offense.
