    Gus Frerotte is returning to the Vikings for a second stint and will provide the team with what it feels is a reliable backup quarterback. Just as important is the fact the veteran will be counted on to help assist in the development of young starter Tarvaris Jackson......

    Frerotte, who signed a two-year, $3.75 million deal, said he’s not only comfortable with the latter role but is looking forward to it.
    That is really good, unlike BJ who still thought that he could compete for the starting job.

    WR Bobby Wade has been rehabbing his left knee in Arizona after undergoing arthroscopic surgery. Wade injured the knee in October and played the rest of the season despite being hobbled.
    I didn't know that his injury was that bad.
    Way to tough it out B-wade.
    ;D

    Right end Erasmus James, meanwhile, continues to rehab after having surgery to repair a torn ACL in December. It’s uncertain when he will be ready to return.
    This is getting real old, real quick.
    >

    It also has been revealed that nose tackle Pat Williams and cornerback Antoine Winfield had undisclosed surgical procedures performed.
    I thought Winny might need a touch up but this is news on Phat Pat.
    Anyone have an idea?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Frerotte made three starts last season in place of the injured Bulger and threw seven touchdowns with 12 interceptions.

    In 3 games he had just as many interceptions as TJ but 2 less TDs. Ouch!

    If he sees some playing time, i don't think he'll be such a risk-taker

    No, he had 12 interceptions in 8 games. He started 3, but played in 8.

    Still, it's too many interceptions.
