Report: Vikings are expected to re-sign Nick Mullens

Mike Florio and Chris Simms reveal who they believe could make the biggest splash as the dominos begin to fall with free agency, from Javon Hargrave to Orlando Brown and more.

The Vikings are keeping their backup quarterback around for 2023.

Minnesota is expected to re-sign Nick Mullens, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

Mullens, who turns 28 this month, appeared in four games for the Vikings last year. He completed 21-of-25 passes for 224 yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Minnesota acquired the quarterback from the Raiders late in training camp for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Mullens has started 17 games in his career, most of which came for the 49ers. After entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2017, he went 3-5 as a starter in 2018 when Jimmy Garoppolo was injured. He then went 2-6 as a starter for the 49ers in 2020.

Mullens also started a game for the Browns in 2021.

The quarterback has completed 65.3 percent of his 655 passes for 5,085 yards with 27 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.
