Well, this may sting a bit for people in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Vikings have a potential succession plan for the post-Kirk Cousins era after drafting Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond in the third round of the NFL draft.
“Kirk’s our starting quarterback,” general manager Spielman said. “There’s no competition there. It’s just taking another player. It’s like, regardless of position, if we take a player in the third round or first round, I’m not calling a player and saying, ‘Hey, we may take this guy here.’ Our job is to get as many good players in here and let them all come in and compete.”
The 21-year-old was selected with the 66th overall pick and was the second of three quarterbacks taken within a four-pick span.
Soon, Twitter detectives would start searching his account for just about anything and came across the youngster trashing Minnesota in an old tweet.
“Minnesota is a awful state”
Mond finished his career at Texas A&M as the all-time career leader in passing yards (9,661), passing touchdowns (71) and total offense (11,269).
