Pin­dell tak­ing part in Vik­ings camp

The News-Times - - SPORTS - By Jim Fuller james.fuller @hearst­medi­act.com; @NHRJimFull­er

David Pin­dell wasn’t taken in the NFL draft, but he is cer­tainly on the radar of NFL teams.

It was pre­vi­ously an­nounced that the for­mer UConn quar­ter­back would take part in the Tampa Bay Buc­ca­neers rookie camp. First things first as Pin­dell is cur­rently at rookie camp with the Min­nesota Vik­ings along with fel­low for­mer Husky Kyle Buss.

The most in­ter­est­ing part of Pin­dell’s mul­ti­ple in­vi­ta­tions is that they come at dif­fer­ent po­si­tions. He is ex­pected to be looked at as a wide re­ceiver by the Buc­ca­neers, but he is listed as a quar­ter­back on the Vik­ings’ rookie camp ros­ter. Pin­dell should get plenty of work as the only other quar­ter­backs in camp are un­drafted free agent Jake Brown­ing and fel­low rookie camp in­vi­tee Sean McGuire.

Pin­dell is com­ing off a sea­son when he led all FBS quar­ter­backs with 1,169 rush­ing yards as a se­nior while the other two quar­ter­backs head­ing to camp com­bined for 146 rush­ing yards dur­ing the 2018 sea­son.

Mul­ti­ple in­vi­ta­tions to rookie camps are not un­usual. Ob­vi­ously if the Vik­ings sign Pin­dell as a free agent he will no longer be among the par­tic­i­pants at Tampa Bay’s rookie camp.
