Vikings rookie QB Kellen Mond tested positive for COVID ahead of the team's Saturday night practice, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. QB Kirk Cousins and backup Nate Stanley also had to sit out as "high-risk close contacts." That points to Cousins not being vaccinated. QB Jake Browning -- who is vaccinated -- did not need to quarantine with the rest of the position group and soaked up the reps. We'll see whether Cousins' vaccination status becomes an issue at any other point -- and whether a positive test comes for him.

The Vikings were hoping to land QB Justin Fields at pick 14 and even considered trading up for him, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin. The Bears ended up making the move for Fields, while the Vikings added QB Kellen Mond with pick 66. Minnesota is clearly looking at their long-term QB situation, with Kirk Cousins turning 33 in August and, more importantly, set to count $45 million against the cap in 2022, the final year of his deal. Mond won't threaten Cousins' job this season. But if he shows well throughout the year, Minnesota might opt to roll with Mond the following year.

The Vikings added Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond with the 66th overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Mond spent nearly all of his 4 years starting at Texas A&M, logging 44 starts over that span. That’s 8 more starts than Trevor Lawrence at Clemson. Mond improved his completion rate each season and posted a 2.6-to-1 TD-INT ratio for his career. His accuracy didn’t fare quite as well in advanced metrics, but Mond adds rushing upside after tallying 1,609 yards and 22 TDs on the ground for the Aggies. He’ll compete to be Kirk Cousins’ backup in 2021. Cousins is currently signed through the 2022 campaign.
