Is Christian Ponder Preparing To Demand Trade From Vikings?


Is Christian Ponder pondering a trade from the Vikings.

Ponder was the 12th overall selection in 2011 by Minnesota.  He is now contemplating asking for his release or possible trade.  Whatever the decision is, Ponder says he has to do what’s best for him at this point according to the Pioneer Press.

“I don’t know. Again, I have to figure out what’s best for me and everything and for this team,” he said Wednesday. “I don’t know if that’s staying here or going somewhere else.”

Ponder is in the third year of a four-year contract that included $10 million guaranteed, but clearly has lost out on a big money extension at this point.
