Vikings In the Market for a QB?

After his disastrous game against Philadelphia, Tarvaris Jackson looks like he will be heading back to the bench. In his end-of-the-season news conference, Vikings head coach Brad Childress made it clear that Minnesota does not have a number 1 quarterback.

Their options would be slim; however, pretty much anyone that they could find would probably be a better short-term move than keeping Jackson in as the starter. The Vikings number one choice would likely be Matt Cassel, who was very impressive this season; but, I doubt that the Patriots will easily let him go. Their next option would be Seattle’s Matt Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck has been injury-prone throughout his career; but, he is still a much more consistent quarterback than Jackson. Other free-agents would include Kerry Collins, Kurt Warner, Jeff Garcia, Dan Orlovsky, and Chris Simms.

    I think they will go to the draft again. They have a high a pick in the 20s. Almost all QBs going into the draft will still be there, excluding Matthew Stafford. They will probably go with Chase Daniel in the 3rd round.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
