Vikings declined to pick up 5th-year contract option on QB Christian Ponder. Ponder is now set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014 season.

This should come at no surprise considering the lack of production from Ponder since taking him with a first-round pick a few years back. He will be looking for a new home at the 2014 season, unless he comes into camp and takes over the starting role, which is unlikely. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
