Going on 27, Lindley has scattered six starts across four NFL seasons. While not particularly big or athletic, Bercovici flashes powerful arm strength and functional pocket mobility.A favorite deep sleeper of both Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman and NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, Bercovici has an outside chance to develop into a No. Sorensen was just cut on Monday, but the Vikings need his arm again after Teddy Bridgewater suffered a torn ACL and dislocated knee in Tuesday's practice.The Bills are still holding out hope Manuel will be able to start in Week 1 against the Patriots.Lindley was signed before Week 17, when the Colts found themselves in truly dire quarterback straits. Bercovici (6'1/206) made 16 starts for the Sun Devils, completing 60.5 percent of his career throws with a 7.4 YPA and TD-to-INT ratio.
Now 30, Leinart appeared in two games with Oakland last season, completing 16-of-33 throws for 115 yards and an interception.
Leinart lacks mobility and starting-caliber arm strength, and is no more than insurance as E. Manuel (knee scope) and Kevin Kolb (concussion) nurse injuries.
It's unclear why Leinart was even signed in the first place.
He's failed time and again in the NFL, and should be near the end.
Minnesota will surely look for an upgrade on Sorensen in the coming days.
For now, it's Shaun Hill, Sorensen, and UDFA Joel Stave.
