The Minnesota Vikings sent shockwaves reverberating throughout the NFL when they unexpectedly released QB Tanner Morgan on Tuesday.
This unexpected roster move comes just days before their highly anticipated Monday Night Football showdown.
Tanner Morgan, a 24-year-old talent, had recently joined the practice squad, but his journey took an abrupt turn.
His addition was prompted by backup Nick Mullens' injury, forcing him into action for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Instead of taking the field, rookie Jaren Hall stepped in as the Vikings' QB2, leaving fans wondering.
Before joining the squad, Tanner Morgan was meticulously refining his skills as an offensive analyst at his alma mater, Minnesota.
His college career boasts impressive stats, with nearly 10,000 passing yards, 65 touchdowns, and 32 interceptions.
The plot thickens as Morgan had been picked eighth overall in the USFL draft but opted for an NFL chance.
The Steelers signed Morgan in April, but his journey with them came to an abrupt end in late August, leaving fans bewildered.
With his departure, Morgan leaves behind a legacy as the second-leading passer in Minnesota history.
