The Minnesota Vikings, desperately seeking some quality quarterback play, reportedly hope to turnover the reigns to recently-signed Josh Freeman Monday night vs. the New York Giants.

The 1-4 Vikings have tried both Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel. Now they hope to turn to the 25-year-old Freeman, released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this season due to both poor play and differences with Bucs coach Greg Schiano. Freeman was a first-round pick by the Bucs in 2009 (17th overall). After a promising 2010 season, his play deteriorated.

Here is a look at the 2013 stats for all three Minnesota quarterbacks.
