MINNESOTA (KTTC) – The Minnesota Vikings have traded for QB Josh Dobbs from the Arizona Cardinals.

The Vikings are trading a 2024 sixth-round pick in exchange for Dobbs and a 2024 seventh round pick.

The trade Tuesday comes after the Vikings confirmed that starting QB Kirk Cousins tore his Achilles tendon in Sunday’s game against the Packers.

Dobbs started the year with the Cleveland Browns before being traded to the Cardinals, where he started eight games this season.

Dobbs is completing 67.9% of his passes and has thrown for 1,569 yards this season with eight touchdowns and five interceptions so far this season.

Rookie QB Jaren Hall is the only other active QB on the Vikings Roster.
