Our favorite NFL quarterback has a new home.
Trevor Siemian has been traded to the Minnesota Vikings, according to NFL.com insider Ian Rapaport. Siemian had been with the Denver Broncos since the franchise selected him out of Northwestern in the 7th round of the 2015 draft.
This comes just one day after it was reported that another former Big Ten QB, Kirk Cousins, would be signing with the Vikings for 3 years, $84 million.
These are the appropriate responses:

Just kidding. Siemian will be the backup in Minnesota. The Vikings needed one after all three quarterbacks on the roster last season — Case Keenum (Broncos), Sam Bradford (Cardinals), and Teddy Bridgewater (Jets) — left via free agency.
Cousins has been very durable over the past few years, but this is a good pickup for the Vikings. Siemian started 24 games over the past two seasons, going 13-11 and completing nearly 60 percent of his passes.
Also, I should probably point out that I’m a diehard Vikings fan so this is big news for me. Congrats to Trevor on securing his second Super Bowl ring.
