Former LSU QB Danny Etling reportedly lands with new NFL team
The Minnesota Vikings have turned to former LSU QB Danny Etling to help solve its ongoing issues at quarterback.
Etling, who entered the NFL Draft and was taken in 2018 by the New England Patriots in the seventh round (219th overall), arrives to his fourth NFL team. Recently, Etling was with Seattle all of last season after being claimed off waivers from the Falcons in August. But he spent the regular season on the practice squad and did not appear in any games for Seattle.
With much of their QB room on the COVID-19 list, the Vikings claimed former Seahawks’ QB Danny Etling on waivers, per source.

The Vikings are dealing with a positive COVID-19 case for former Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond, and because of that, they are expected to be without three quarterbacks, including starter Kirk Cousins, for the time being.
At LSU, Etling played in 24 games at LSU, and started 23 times. He passed for 4,586 yards and 27 touchdowns in his two years with the Tigers, and accounted for 30 touchdowns (27 passing, 3 rushing).
