Kenny Guiton's Agent Denies Deal is in Place with Minnesota Vikings

UPDATE (10:54 PM): Guiton's agent has issued a much stronger denial to the earlier reports:

UPDATE (9:49 PM): Vikings have released the names of 15 players who've agreed to terms, and Guiton's name is noticeably absent. (Guiton's agent claims they're working the phones as well.) The watch for white smoke emanating from the Minneapolis skyline has begun...  


Move over, Teddy Bridgewater; the smooth jazz of Kenny Guiton is (reportedly) coming for your (assumed) starting job.

Although Guiton didn't see his number called during the draft, the Vikings — according to multiple media reports — moved swiftly afterwards and snatched up Guiton's services by signing him to an undrafted free agent contract. 

Guiton, a former recruiting afterthought, only attempted 134 passes during his career and was featured primarily as a backup. When he did get a call to service, however, he was always ready and usually electric. Due to this, he rightfully ascended to the status of fan favorite.

His most notable moment came against Purdue in 2012, when he led the Buckeyes to a come-from-behind victory over the Boilermakers that preserved Ohio State's eventual undefeated season.

The best thing about Pastafarianism? It is not only acceptable, but advisable, to be heavily sauced

This is a really good fit for him. He could actually compete for a job.

Depth chart has Bridgewater, Ponder, and...Matt Cassel. Kenny G has to beat Matt Cassel at his own game!

Sorry DJ. I wasn't trying to be a stealer of thunder,

Mea Culpa if that's how it was perceived.

Oh, no not at all my friend. I'm not reporting anything here, just relaying what's being said.

Wish he would try out with the Browns, then they will see what a good QB looks like compared to JM.

Come home Kenny.

 

Go Bucks!
