But the Vikings' personnel boss says more roster moves are possible, even at quarterback.

The Vikings aren't going to be significant players in the free-agent market, but that doesn't mean they won't attempt to upgrade their roster at various positions. And that includes quarterback....
Re: Spielman: Big Vikings spending spree unlikely
Wonder why that concept is so hard to figure for some?
"I don't think you ever paint yourself into that we're set at [quarterback]," Spielman said.
Maybe, just maybe the staff (the Chiller included) still isn't happy with what they have at QB my friends....
I think we're excited about our young guys. But if there is a guy out there who we feel can come in and potentially help us win ballgames, and we feel that strongly, we'll go ahead and make a run at it."
Well they have alot of potential but don't seem to be progressing as fast as we would like....
Kindof a contridiction there.
As for Birk's departure, Spielman declined to say whether he had any regrets about not beginning contract talks last summer or during the season.
For those of us that took the time to listen to the podcast, we heard that they did make a couple of offers late last year and during the summer not only to Matt but several of the players.....
Wonder which is the truth.....Press Spielman or Radio Spielman.
