The Minnesota Vikings quarterback controversy could have another face thrown into the mix if former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman brings his talents to Minnesota.

According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, Freeman will pick one of the teams that have contacted him by Sunday night, which have been the Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and Vikings.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that the Vikings are one of the only teams with legitimate interest in Freeman, who was released by the Buccaneers this week after the team's 0-4 start.

 Commitment to former 12th-overall pick Christian Ponder appears to be waning after a 12-17 record as a starter since being drafted in 2011. Ponder had a hand in seven of the team's 10 turnovers in an 0-3 start before backup Matt Cassel led the team to its first victory last week in London.

Ponder has 33 touchdowns, 30 interceptions and a career 59.2 completion percentage since entering the league.

Freeman handed the Vikings their only home loss last season, when he threw for 262 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the 36-17 win on Oct. 25.
