The Minnesota Vikings have removed the quarterback Kellen Mond and ended the contract of the backup quarterback Sean Mannion, the team announced on Tuesday.

Mond's fate was confirmed last week when the Vikings purchased the quarterback Nick Mullens in a deal together with the Las Vegas Raiders.

It's possible, but not sure that Mond might be added to the practice squad of the team in the coming weeks.

Mond who was a third-round pick in 2021, was never established in Minnesota. Mond was positive for COVID-19 at training camp in the summer of last year

and was a setback to his development which forced the Vikings to select Mannion for Kirk Cousins his backup ahead of the beginning of the season.

In the event that Cousins was sidelined with COVID-19 in a Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers

The coach of the day Mike Zimmer started Mannion and stated that he did not have any interest in playing Mond in the regular season game.

The new director Kevin O'Connell gave Mond an opportunity to start over however, he was inconsistent to serve as the No. 2 quarterback. 

Playing roughly half of the Vikings practice sessions, Mond completed 29 of 51 passes for 303 yards including two interceptions, and two touchdowns. Mond racked up five times.
