Vikings Trade for QB Trevor Siemian Becomes Official

Posted Mar 19, 2018

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Monday announced they have acquired quarterback Trevor Siemian from the Denver Broncos.

Originally a seventh-round pick in 2015, Siemian has started 24 of 25 games for the Broncos in the past two seasons.

The Broncos went 13-11 in starts by Siemian, who has completed 495 of 835 passes (59.3 percent) for 5,686 yards with 30 touchdowns, 24 interceptions and a passer rating of 79.9. Siemian has been sacked 64 times.

Siemian is a Florida native who played collegiately at Northwestern. He will join starter Kirk Cousins, who signed with the Vikings last week in free agency, and Kyle Sloter in the quarterbacks room at Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center.

The Vikings convinced Sloter, who spent the 2017 preseason in Denver as a rookie, to join their practice squad before the regular season and signed him to the active roster last September. Sloter was active for six games but did not play in a Vikings game.

The Vikings entered the 2018 offseason in a unique situation with quarterbacks Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater and Case Keenum all having contracts that expired last week.

Bradford signed with Arizona, Bridgewater joined the New York Jets and Keenum headed to Denver when free agency opened.
