The Minnesota Vikings released their first official depth chart of the regular season on Tuesday. Many players are in their expected places. Adrian Peterson is the first-team running back. Kyle Rudolph is in his spot at tight end. Matt Kalil, Alex Boone, Joe Berger, Brandon Fusco, and Andre Smith are starting along the offensive line. Stefon Diggs and Charles Johnson are the No. 1 and 2 receivers.
At quarterback, though, there’s something that may seem unexpected.
But while that might seem surprising, the truth is that it’s the way it needs to be for at least a little while. Bradford just joined the team a few days ago. Though he is familiar with quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur, he’s never played in offensive coordinator Norv Turner’s offense and he needs time to learn the new system before assuming the reins of the first-team offense. Until he gets comfortable, expect to see Hill under center for the Vikes.
