Free-agent QB Sean Mannion left Minnesota on Tuesday, April 2, without a deal after visiting with the Minnesota Vikings for the previous two days, and the Vikings will continue their search for a backup QB.

Footballguys view: Mannion is a tall, strong-armed and athletic quarterback who has been developing with the Rams.

  Rams | Sean Mannion continues to struggle    Fri Aug 10, 09:35 PM

Los Angeles Rams QB Sean Mannion completed three of his 13 pass attempts for 16 yards and an interception in a preseason loss to the Baltimore Ravens Thursday, Aug. 9, and Vincent Bonsignore said Mannion has 'struggled' throughout offseason workouts and in training camp.

Footballguys view: Mannion has always had a big arm, size and some athleticism but those tools aren't only what's needed to succeed at the pro level. At this time, Mannion is the primary backup to Jared Goff. With the Rams poised to make a run at the Super Bowl in 2018 one has to wonder if they'll consider upgrading that spot just in case Goff goes down and they have to go to the backup.
