Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Friday that he would like to add a veteran quarterback and Saturday the NFL Network reported there is a high probability the Vikings will acquire Donovan McNabb from Washington.

Vikings coach Leslies Frazier can’t talk about McNabb, but he could address whether the Vikings would definitely add a veteran quarterback.

“Not necessarily,” Frazier said. “When you look at the free-agent market at quarterback, which we did prior to March 3 when we didn’t know what was going to happen, you’ve got to determine is there a good fit for you? We were having those discussions, there had not been a draft at that point and we were talking about what the scenarios would be if we weren’t able to get a quarterback in the draft.

“Now we have a quarterback, so we have to go back and revisit that and discuss whether or not it’s to our advantage to bring in a veteran or do we want to let the competition remain between those three and maybe sign a free agent quarterback?”
