Big fan of Minnesota football? Then check out this list of Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Minnesota Vikings history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must-- and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.

In the 2017-18 NFL season, the current Minnesota Vikings starting QBs and backup QBs are Sam Bradford, Taylor Heinicke, and Case Keenum.

They're on this comprehensive list, along with all of the other sports stars who have had the honor of being the arm behind this beloved Illinois team.
