Siemian will be the second and only other quarterback on Minnesota’s roster, after it lost Teddy Bridgewater, Case Keenum and Sam Bradford in free agency. The former seventh-round NFL Draft pick started 24 games over the past two seasons, throwing 30 touchdown passes and compiling a 59.3 completion percentage.
