Keenum, Bridgewater address 2018 Vikings quarterback conundrum

Keenum, Bridgewater address 2018 Vikings quarterback conundrum

Several major questions related to the 2018 season have been staring at the Vikings for months, but always with the caveat that they would be dealt with when the team’s surprisingly successful season finally ended. Well, that happened Sunday. And now perhaps the most important of those questions — who will be the starting quarterback in 2018 for a team that went 13-3 during the regular season and made it within a game of playing a Super Bowl in its home stadium — is at the forefront of an interesting offseason. Teddy Bridgewater started every game in 2015 for a Vikings team that made the playoffs. Sam Bradford started 15 in 2016. Case Keenum started 16, including two playoff games, for Minnesota in 2017. All three were on the roster this year, and all three are free agents. “I have an inkling that all those guys are going to be starting quarterbacks in this league for someone and they’re going to win a lot of games,” Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen said Monday. “They’re that kind of character guys and that kind of players.” So now what? Multiple national reports Sunday indicated the most likely scenario is that the Vikings will use the franchise tag on Keenum, which would be a one-year commitment at more than $20 million. The Vikings can use that tag on one impending free agent during a 15-day window starting Feb. 20. “I really haven’t thought too much about it,” Keenum said of his contract status, when asked by reporters Monday during locker room cleanout day back in the Twin Cities. “I love this team. I love these guys. Love the coaching staff. I love this whole organization. … The culture they have around here is just awesome. Minnesota itself, the people here have been great.” That said, Keenum said he plans to go somewhere warm and let the process play out. Putting the franchise tag on Keenum would seem to be an easy solution to the Vikings’ conundrum. That said, it’s hard to imagine the situation being more unusual or complicated. To recap: The Vikings acquired Bradford in 2016 after Bridgewater’s knee injury late in the preseason. At the time, Bradford had two years left on his contract. Bradford stayed healthy in 2016 and entered 2017 as the starter, with Keenum signed to a one-year, $2 million deal while Bridgewater continued his recovery. Bradford was injured during a wonderful Week 1 performance against the Saints, and Keenum ended up playing all but two quarters for the rest of the season. Bridgewater returned to the active roster in early November. When Bridgewater came back to the active roster, Bradford went on injured reserve. It was speculated that Bridgewater could replace Keenum at some point down the stretch, but Keenum’s strong play kept Bridgewater on the bench with the exception a brief appearance late in a blowout win over Cincinnati. Bradford was activated before the Vikings’ first playoff game and served as the No. 2 quarterback behind Keenum for both postseason games, with Bridgewater inactive for both. “This year I think my biggest test was my character,” Bridgewater said Monday. “In a perfect world, I would have loved to have been dressing, but I understand decisions are made to give this team the best chance to win. I understand that and I’m a pro. I know what it takes. It happened, and I dealt with it.” Bridgewater said he didn’t read too much into his demotion to No. 3 when it comes to interpreting the Vikings’ long-term plans, but he said he’s “definitely, without a question” worthy of being a starting quarterback for someone in 2018. Bridgewater and Bradford have injury histories, but the Vikings have also heavily invested time, draft picks and money in both. Keenum helped carry the team to a 13-3 record, but his play in the NFC title game and his overall history are in question. Don’t forget, too, there is a fourth quarterback possibly in the mix in some way: Kyle Sloter, the undrafted rookie free agent whom the Vikings paid a premium to sign to their practice squad and who served as the No. 2 quarterback behind Keenum for several weeks while both Bradford and Bridgewater remained out. Will the Vikings put the franchise tag on Keenum, paying a premium for one year without having to commit long-term? Do they hesitate given that offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, credited for helping Keenum excel this year, is slated to become the Giants head coach? Would they rather turn back to Bridgewater, who because of his injury and Keenum’s production has barely seen game action for two full seasons? Would they risk signing Bradford — who did not address the media Monday — and hope he stays healthy? Will they eschew all three and make a play for another quarterback in free agency? Someone like Washington’s Kirk Cousins could be a fit on the open market, and the Vikings will have cap space to make a big move if the opportunity presents itself. “I’m sure those guys (in the front office) are going to do the best they can to give us the best chance of winning with the decision they make,” running back Latavius Murray said. As of now, though, it remains a situation with more interesting questions than obvious answers.

Jeanette Epps is not the only astronaut NASA has removed from their planned flights

Jeanette Epps is not the only astronaut NASA has removed from their planned flights

Jeanette Epps is not the only astronaut NASA has removed from their planned flightsOn Jan. 18, NASA announced that astronaut Jeanette Epps would not fly, as expected, to the International Space Station in June. The mission would have been historic, since she would have become the first African-American crewmember on the orbiting outpost.  The space agency hasn't released any information about why Epps was benched from her planned mission, saying only that "these decisions are personnel matters for which NASA doesn’t provide information," according to NASA spokesperson Brandi Dean. Epps will now work in the Astronaut Office at Johnson Space Center and await another possible flight assignment. Epps' removal from her planned flight isn't without historic precedent. SEE ALSO: Astronaut expected to be the 1st African-American Space Station crewmember won't fly in 2018 after all NASA has benched astronauts before flights many times in its decades as a federal agency, and for many different reasons. "Flight assignments have been changed often in the past at various stages of training for a variety of reasons," Dean said via email. Specifically, quite a few astronauts have been removed from their missions for health reasons.  NASA astronaut Jeanette Epps.Image: NASANASA's Ken Mattingly was pulled from the Apollo 13 crew just a few days before their scheduled launch because he was exposed to German measles.  From the ground, Mattingly was part of the team that helped bring back the Apollo 13 crew to Earth after an oxygen tank exploded, putting the lives of the crew in serious danger and forcing them to abandon their planned moon landing.  Mattingly still earned a place in cinematic history, since he was portrayed by actor Gary Sinise in the movie Apollo 13. "Long before Jeanette Epps was pulled from her upcoming space station expedition, astronauts such as Ken Mattingly in 1970 and Don Thomas in 2002 were reassigned due to medical issues, while Mark Lee was pulled from a 2001 space station assembly shuttle mission for reasons NASA never disclosed," space historian and editor of collectSPACE.com Robert Pearlman said in an interview.  "To their crewmates' credit, despite the interruptions, the missions went on as planned (or in the case of Apollo 13, went awry but at no fault of Mattingly's replacement, Jack Swigert)." NASA also replaced Jeff Ashby in 1997 due to an illness in his family, and other astronauts have been removed due to other medical or personal issues. "NASA invests a lot of time, effort and money in training their astronaut crews, and stresses teamwork throughout, so the decision to remove an astronaut from a flight is never taken lightly," Pearlman said. Epps's 2018 mission was announced in 2017 and it immediately went viral.  News organizations profiled Epps and wrote about her expected upcoming flight, making the news of her reassignment all the more surprising.  She has not yet flown to space. Epps was chosen as part of NASA's 2009 astronaut class as one of 14 candidates.  Her path to NASA is different from many other astronauts, however.  Epps started off as a NASA fellow and then worked at Ford Motor Company before spending seven years at the Central Intelligence Agency.  Epps was inspired to become an astronaut after watching the first class of women become NASA astronauts decades ago. "It was about 1980, I was nine years old. My brother came home and he looked at my grades and my twin sisters' grades and he said, 'You know, you guys can probably become aerospace engineers or even astronauts,'" Epps said in a NASA video. "And this was at the time that Sally Ride [the first American woman to fly in space] and a group of women were selected to become astronauts — the first time in history. So, he made that comment and I said, 'Wow, that would be so cool.'" WATCH: Here's how Virgin's space program is different than SpaceX

Turpin family home was 'littered with faeces and dead cats and dogs'Former Texan neighbours of David and Louise Turpin, the American couple whose 13 children were discovered chained and malnourished last week, have described a previous home littered with faeces, dead animals and a makeshift classroom. Ricky Vinyard, a tree feller from Rio Vista also told how one Christmas eight bikes arrived but remained untouched outside until they bleached in the sun.  And that one of the daughters once ran away from home, only to be returned to her parents by another local resident. “It was waist-deep in filth. There were dead dogs and cats in there,” he told the Los Angeles Times. He described how he found two Chihuahuas that had survived by eating waste from a mound of soiled nappies in a trailer behind the property where the children slept. “There were no b
