The Vikings soon will have three quarterbacks under contract for next season.
Sources said Monday that Nate Stanley and Jake Browning, both of whom spent all of the 2020 season on the practice squad, will sign futures deals with the Vikings. They will join starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has two years left on his contract. Backup Sean Mannion is due to become a free agent in March.
Stanley, a native of Menomonie, Wis., was a seventh-round draft pick in April out of Iowa. Browning has been with the Vikings since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2019.
Sources identified four other practice-squad players who agreed Monday to futures deals with the Vikings: fullback Jake Bargas, cornerback Tae Hayes, defensive back Luther Kirk and offensive lineman Zack Bailey.
Bargas was elevated for a Dec. 25 game at New Orleans when starter C.J. Ham was injured and played seven snaps. Hayes was elevated for Sunday’s 37-35 win at Detroit in the finale and played two snaps on special teams. Kirk was elevated for a Nov. 1 game at Green Bay but didn’t play.
Also, a source said defensive end Eddie Yarbrough is not expected to sign a futures deal with Minnesota. Yarbrough spent the first week of the season on the 53-man roster and the remainder of the season on the practice squad. He played in four games this season, including 20 snaps Sunday.
