The Vikings listed veteran Shaun Hill as the starting and first-team quarterback in the unofficial depth chart released Tuesday. Recently acquired quarterback Sam Bradford is the backup.

The announcement is no surprise since Bradford is still settling in at Winter Park after Saturday’s trade, but also doesn’t mean he won’t start in Sunday’s season opener at Tennessee.

Bradford said his goal is to play Sunday and is working hard to learn the Vikings offense.

“That’s the goal, you know, to progress to that point to where I feel comfortable enough to get out there and play if I’m needed to,” he said. “But I can’t tell you if that’s going to be the case or not.”

Coach Mike Zimmer on Monday wouldn't commit to starting Hill or Bradford. 

The depth chart at left cornerback listed veteran Terence Newman as the starter with Trae Waynes as the backup, but there’s still uncertainty about who will actually start Sunday.

Charles Johnson and Stefon Diggs were listed as the first-team wide receivers with 2016 first-round draft pick Laquon Treadwell backing up Johnson.
