Early on in training camp, the trio of Bridgewater, Matt Cassel, and Christian Ponder have shared the Vikings' QB reps, NFL.com reports. "These first four days, we've worked three groups," offensive coordinator Norv Turner noted Monday. "Matt's gotten a little bit more, Teddy's gotten about a third and Ponder's gotten about a third. We have the day off [Tuesday], and we'll adjust that, probably getting more half and half."
Cassel enters training camp as the leader in the quarterback competition, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "In my mind I have Cassel as the No. 1 quarterback going into camp. I don't have a starter in mind yet," Zimmer told ESPN 1500 am Twin Cities. "[The players] are going to determine who the starter is on the practice field about how they go about their business, how they perform in the preseason games. I understand the quarterback's a big situation."
