Trade for Beathard. Cut Browning. Move Mond to the practice squad (if he’s claimed, it wouldn’t bother me). 

Can’t see anyone jumping on Mond at the moment. He’s playing no better than a typical camp body, would have expected a ton more from him based on his upside that had him in the conversation in round two. I know he missed time but you’d think he’d play better against third stringers on pure talent alone, there hasn’t been any flashes yet.

The throw was from Mond to Philyor.  The announcer says, "Nice throw there!  Nice catch there!".  When he thought Mond threw an interception, he knew Mond's name.  When Rose made a 20-yard run, he didn't know his name.  When he fumbled, suddenly he knew Rose's name.  I find all this interesting.

Paul Allen is a middling announcer only propped up because the Vikings essentially own KFAN.

I like Mond. He can’t play this year, but the tools are definitely there. Great zip, throws off platform, and can make things happen off-script.

I agree.  He has a great arm, great legs and sense of pressure.  He can zip the ball in.  He just needs to work on getting the hitch out of his delivery, and to get more experience on learning to recognise defences, get to know his receivers, and learn the playbook.  I think they should hire a special QB coach to work with him.  He's a special talent, which shouldn't be wasted.
