MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – With Vikings starting quarterback Sam Bradford limited during the team’s organized team activity (OTA) Tuesday, a familiar face to Hampton Roads was given an opportunity to take snaps with the starters.

Heinicke, who signed with Minnesota as an undrafted free agent in 2015, has yet to appear in a regular season game. He was the lone Vikings rookie free agent to make the team after training camp in ’15 after racking-up 16,279 yards of total offense and 132 career touchdown passes for the Monarchs.

Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater is not taking snaps during OTAs, as he continues to rehab a knee injury suffered last preseason.
