Vikings trade for Cardinals QB Josh Dobbs

In wake of the Kirk Cousinstorn Achilles tendon, the Minnesota Vikings have acquired a quarterback at the trade deadline.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Vikings have traded for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Dobbs. At the time of this writing, the trade cost has not been confirmed.

Dobbs started the first eight games for the Cardinals this season. He has a 1-7 record, but has kept them competitive while they waited for Kyler Murray to get healthy.

So far this season, Dobbs has completed 62.8% of his passes for 1,569 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions while also rushing for 258 yards and three touchdowns.

The Vikings needed to add some depth to their quarterback room with the injury to Cousins and they got that with Dobbs.
