Vikings name Josh Freeman starting QB: Top 10 tweets
This week, the Purple's starting QB is Freeman (center). At this rate, by the end of the season, it could be you.
The Vikings QB Merry Go 'Round got another spin today, as coach Leslie Frazier announced new acquisition Josh Freeman will start the team's Monday night game on the road against the winless New York Giants.
