AP Sources: Vikings get QB McNabb from Redskins
Ponder was billed as the most NFL-ready quarterback in the 2011 class, but not being able to work with new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave and most of his teammates at various minicamps and organized team activities throughout the summer makes it a bigger challenge for him to be ready to start in San Diego on Sept. 11.
Ponder said last week during a workout at the University of Minnesota that he still was aiming to be the starter from Day 1.
“That’s what I’m pushing for,” he said. “That’s what I’m hoping for. So we’ll see what happens.”
Bringing in McNabb does show veterans such as Adrian Peterson, Antoine Winfield, Jared Allen and Kevin Williams that the team is still in a “win now” mode, and it was unclear on Wednesday night just how the pecking order at quarterback will play out.
“I would have loved to have him back here,” Alexander said. “But things just didn’t turn out the right way, and he’ll go on and eventually be a Hall of Famer.”
