Which QB could we get the most back for in a trade?
Considering we currently have 4 QB's on the roster, and there are teams like the Bills, Jags, Raiders, etc who always could us a QB, which QB could get us the most in return?
Ponder - piss poor track record, but still fairly young in his career.
Cassel - Has proven something, but not very consistantly.
MBT - I'm really just throwing him in here.
Freeman - We aren't trading him, and nobody is interested, apparently.
I guess my point is, I don't see the value of keeping 3 similarly talented QB's on the roster. Ponder or Cassel should be traded.Trying out some new forums since I got my ip banned on Purple Chat 2 weeks ago...

I don't think any of them have any trade value. I think all 3 stay for this year.
Next year I think Ponder will still be on the roster because his contract is fully guaranteed, so it's basically free to keep him.
Since Ponder is a native of Texas, and went to college at Florida State, I would suggest trading Ponder to Tampa Bay. He could compete with Glennon for the starting QB job there.

Unless someone is willing to trade for Ponder and pick up his contract, it's hard to believe the Vikings would take the $3M cap hit rather than at least have him on the roster for depth.
Another wild card is if we have turnover on the coaching staff. I think everything is in play if that happens.

I'm not saying I wouldn't like to see a trade like that be done, I just don't see it happening. I could see some desparate team with injuries being interested in Ponder or Cassel as a shot in the dark. Hell, if we could get a late pick or something like that for either, I'd be all for it.
I do agree with everyone who says they have little to no trade value though. Injuries could change that though.Trying out some new forums since I got my ip banned on Purple Chat 2 weeks ago...

I'm thinking Ponder is worth less in trade value than what Tampa got for Freeman.
