Vikings Starting QB Nick Mullens In Week 15

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting Tuesday that the Vikings are set to start QB Nick Mullens for their Week 15 game against the Bengals.

Mullen replaced Joshua Dobbs during Sunday’s game after his struggles continued, so this isn’t a big surprise. 

Mullens, 28, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason and later added to their practice squad.

The 49ers brought Mullens back on a futures contract in 2018 only to release him at the start of the regular season. Mullens had a brief stint on their practice squad before being called up following Jimmy Garoppolo‘s season-ending knee injury.

Mullens re-signed as an exclusive rights free agent heading into 2020 but San Francisco declined to tender him as a restricted free agent. The Eagles signed him to a contract before releasing him and he eventually caught on with the Browns.

Mullens signed with the Raiders as a backup to QB Derek Carr but was traded to the Vikings for a 2024 seventh-round pick. Minnesota re-signed him to a contract last offseason. 

In 2022, Mullens appeared in four games for the Vikings and completed 21 of 25 passes for 224 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
