The Minnesota Vikings appear to be actively searching for their future quarterback in the 2024 NFL Draft. However, what happens if their plans fall through, leaving them scrambling to find a starting quarterback for the 2025 season?

Matt Lombardo, in a recent article for Gridiron Heroics, explores the possibility of the Vikings targeting Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys in next year’s free agency as a solution to their quarterback dilemma.

While the notion may seem far-fetched initially, there are compelling reasons for Minnesota to consider Prescott.

Recent negotiations between Prescott and the Cowboys have hit a roadblock, suggesting he might be available in free agency after the 2024 NFL season unless a resolution is reached.

Should Prescott become a free agent and the Vikings fail to secure a long-term quarterback option, he could be an intriguing choice for a team poised to contend with an established signal-caller. By 2025, Minnesota is projected to have a healthy amount of salary cap space and a competitive roster.

Signing Prescott would provide them with a seasoned nine-year veteran who possesses many of the qualities the team admires in Kirk Cousins.

However, opting for Dak Prescott would not be without its drawbacks. It would follow a pattern familiar to Vikings fans of relying on veteran acquisitions to bolster playoff aspirations. Ideally, the team would prefer to develop a quarterback internally under the leadership of Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Kevin O’Connell, thus avoiding the need to splurge on a veteran starter.

The uncertainty surrounding the Vikings’ quarterback situation adds both excitement and apprehension for fans as they await the 2025 NFL season. The possibilities for who will be under center are vast, making it a compelling storyline to follow in the coming months.
