08:51 PM ET 04.14 | With the signing of veteran backup quarterback Matt Cassel and the public display of trust in Christian Ponder, the Minnesota Vikings have a decision to make on Joe Webb. Move him to wide receiver? Use him Wildcat? Carry four quarterbacks? When head coach Leslie Frazier was asked about the possibility of moving Webb to receiver in a Star Tribune article, it appears he is considering all options: "[Webb] is such a talented athlete that we want to make sure that we're doing the right thing by him and our team, as well," Frazier said. "That's something we'll continue to discuss as we go forward." The Vikings are high on 24-year-old McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who beat out veteran Sage Rosenfels for the third-string quarterback job last season. Barring any major injuries or draft day surprises, it appears Bethel-Thompson is the favorite to remain the third-string quarterback.

Whatever they so with him... He ain't a QB.

True... Have to wonder if they hindered his development as a WR, with this QB experiment.

Joe Webb's future holds MANY possibilities (Extra Value Meals, McChickens, Quarter Pounders, BigMacs, Super Sized Fries, etc.)

McLeod Bethel-Thompson? Never heard of him. Guessing he was a Div. II undrafted free agent?
