The health of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's knee is slowly becoming clearer, but the team was looking for an insurance policy of sorts and found one in Case Keenum.
The sixth-year quarterback is reportedly signing with the Vikings after spending the last two seasons with the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams, according to Adam Caplan and other media outlets.
Bridgewater posted a video of himself dropping back and throwing on his Instagram this week so clearly his rehab is going well, though Bridgewater hasn't spoken with the media and the team is remaining hush on the status of his knee.
It's unclear if Bridgewater will be ready for the start of the 2017 season but the team chose to cover themselves just in case, and that is why they signed Keenum.
Surely some Vikings fans will take the Keenum signing as a sign that Bridgewater's knee is in worse shape than expected but I wouldn't take it that way at all. I would view this signing as simply an insurance policy should Bridgewater not be ready come the start of the 2017 season.
