EAGAN, Minnesota — With training camp a week away, the Minnesota Vikings are down to three quarterbacks on the roster.

The Vikings on Tuesday waived Nate Stanley, a Menomonie, Wis., native who spent 2020 on the practice squad and 2021 on injured reserve. That leaves Kirk Cousins, Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond as the only quarterbacks on the roster.

Stanley, a seventh-round draft pick in 2020 out of Iowa, entered training camp last year competing with Mond and Jake Browning for the backup role behind Cousins. Stanley then spent five days during camp on the COVID-19 reserve list and eventually was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed condition. The Vikings ended up waiving Browning, and Mannion was re-signed to be the backup.

Vikings rookies and select other players will report for training camp on Sunday and all other players will report next Tuesday. The first full-squad workout at the TCO Performance Center in Eagan is scheduled for July 27.

With the release of Stanley, the Vikings have one spot open on their 90-man offseason roster.


Ingram expected to sign

Vikings guard Ed Ingram, a second-round draft pick from LSU, is expected to report on time to training camp and sign his contract, a source said Tuesday.

Ingram is in line for a four-year contract worth just under $6 million with a signing bonus worth about $1.5 million.

The Vikings have signed eight of their 10 draft picks. Cornerback Andrew Booth Jr., a second-round pick from Clemson, has yet to sign his deal.
