Re: Projecting the Vikings 53 Man Roster: QB's
i dont buy it.
There are several teams that will be releasing QB' s before the season starts because they are overloaded, or because someone has basically lost their spot. Teams like Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Baltimore, along with some better known names like Losman, or Pennington.
Barring injury Jackson and Booty are locks, but I am not convinced that our 3rd QB, and probably the short/long term back-up since Booty is more of the long term project is not on another team right now. Now I am not saying they will come in to "beat out" TJack but I think their will be some much better QB's out there as a solid to decent #2 that will be available and if nothing else push TJack to be better. Worse case scenario can come in and do a decent job if TJack is hurt or very ineffective, can fill in the gap for Booty if he iends up being the long term answer.
they signed gus to a 2 year deal.
he has plenty of starting experience, has proven to be a solid backup and is basically coming into be exactly a backup qb.
your scenario sounds more like if the vikes were looking for a starting qb to compete with tjack.
from all indications that doesn't appear to be the situation.
also, i dont know that any of those teams are looking to cut guys they probably feel they can get some value for.
edwards is a 2nd year guy, if they cut losman who's the backup and what's the salary cap hit?
clemens has not separated himself from pennignton and pennington probably has some value in a trade, along with maybe a big cap hit.
outside of those guys i dont know if you are gonna see anyone more attractive than gus, let alone bring a guy in half way through training camp to take his job.
i think the vikes have we they want at the qb position at least for this year
