And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played on both the Broncos and Vikings.

Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft after a stellar collegiate career at the University of Louisville. In Minnesota, Bridgewater showed promise early, earning a Pro Bowl selection in his second season.

Unfortunately, a severe knee injury during the 2016 preseason sidelined him for nearly two full seasons. Upon his return, Bridgewater spent time with the Jets and the Saints, filling in admirably for an injured Drew Brees in 2019.

His performance led to a starting opportunity with the Carolina Panthers in 2020, where he provided steady quarterback play. In 2021, Bridgewater was traded to the Denver Broncos, where he competed for and won the starting quarterback job.

Gus Frerotte

Gus Frerotte is known for his journeyman career in the NFL as a quarterback from 1994 to 2008. He played for seven different teams, including the Washington Football Team, Detroit Lions, and Minnesota Vikings.

Perhaps his best season came in 1996 when he was named to the Pro Bowl while with Washington. In that season, he threw for 3453 yards and 12 touchdowns. Frerotte’s most memorable moment might be his infamous headbutt celebration which resulted in a sprained neck.

Over his career, he accumulated 21,291 passing yards and 114 touchdowns, serving mostly as a solid backup or spot starter.

Case Keenum

Case Keenum is perhaps best known as a Minnesota Viking where he led them to the NFC Championship game during the 2017 season. That season he threw for 3547 yards and 22 touchdowns, leading to an 11-3 record as a starter and a memorable playoff run, including the “Minneapolis Miracle” touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs.

Keenum began his career as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans in 2012. Despite his undrafted status, Keenum has managed to carve out a substantial career, including significant starting roles for the Rams, Vikings, Broncos, and Washington Football Team.

Over his career thus far, he’s passed for over 14,800 yards and 78 touchdowns.

Latavius Murray

Latavius Murray, a running back who kicked off his career with the Oakland Raiders in 2013, served as the team’s lead back from 2014 to 2016, even earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2015 when he rushed for 1066 yards and six touchdowns.

He joined the Minnesota Vikings in 2017, where he proved to be a reliable and efficient rusher, racking up 842 yards and eight touchdowns in his best season with the team (2018).

Since 2019, Murray has bounced around with multiple teams but is always a solid contributor no matter whose backfield he’s in.

Bubby Brister

Bubby Brister is a former NFL quarterback who played for several teams over his 14-year professional career from 1986 to 2000. He began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he was the primary starter for several seasons.

His time with the Steelers was marked by some solid performances, though the team overall had limited success. After his time in Pittsburgh, he had stints with the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, Denver Broncos, and Minnesota Vikings.

While Brister never reached a Pro Bowl, he did win two Super Bowl rings as a backup with the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII. Over his career, Brister threw for over 14,000 yards with 81 touchdowns and 78 interceptions.
