Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kyle Sloter earned a nice check for six days worth of work.
Backup QB Sean Mannion landed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Dec. 27 and was activated on Friday before making his third career start. Starting QB Kirk Cousins was placed on Reserve/COVID-19 on Friday, sidelining him for Minnesota’s Week 17 game at Green Bay.
Sloter signed with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in May 2017 and made stops with the Cardinals, Lions, Bears and Raiders, but has not appeared in a regular-season game.
The Vikings (7-9) have been eliminated from postseason play, so it remains to be seen what approach the team might take as the NFL plays a 17th regular-season game for the first time in league history.
