As the Minnesota Vikings scramble to figure out how badly QB Teddy Bridgewater is injured, the phones have to be ringing off the hooks around the league looking for a replacement. Could EJ Manuel be a target? Absolutely.
While Manuel doesn't have an amazing resume, he has shown the flashes that make the chance worth taking, seeing as though the Vikings really don't have many serviceable options elsewhere. With only a little over $6 million in cap space, a moveo bring EJ in would cost only a small portion of that compared to having to sign a QB. The Bills would save about $1.6 million in the deal in cap space. With an offense based on a strong run game and built for a young QB without much need to read coverage, EJ makes a logical fit.
Of course, the real target will be Mark Sanchez. Good luck with that Minnesota.
