Vikings Sign Free Agent QB, Release RB


The Vikings on Saturday announced the signing of free agent quarterback Brad Sorensen and the release of running back Kevin Monangai.

Sorensen played quarterback at Southern Utah and was drafted by the Chargers in the seventh round (221st overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Sorensen is 28 years old and joins a room that includes third-year pro Teddy Bridgewater, 15-year vet Shaun Hill and rookie Joel Stave. Taylor Heinicke is currently on the non-football injury list.

The California native spent time with the Chargers in 2013, 2014 and 2015, mostly on the practice squad. He also spent a short stint on the Titans practice squad in 2014.

In college, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sorensen totaled 9,445 passing yards and 61 touchdowns and set all major career and single-season passing records. In 2012, he threw for 3,139 yards and 23 touchdowns and was named a finalist for the Payton Award.

He is the brother of Daniel Sorensen, a safety who has played 25 games for the Chiefs in the past two seasons after being undrafted out of BYU, where Brad began his college career before transferring to Southern Utah.
