Jackson’s Future in Minnesota Up In the Air

Sep 3, 2009, 4:36 PM | Updated: Apr 4, 2011, 7:55 pm

Former Minnesota Vikings starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson now finds himself in a peculiar position now that Brett Favre is the starter. We had Rod Simons, an anchor from KSTP-TV in Minneapolis on the show to talk about Jackson’s future with the team.

Simons says that the Vikings are looking to deal Jackson, but that the possibility of getting something in return is small, “They’re shopping him but they don’t expect to get anything…The reality is NFL teams wait for the waiver wires, and they don’t do a lot of deals, especially for players that they can get off the waivers.”

Simons talked about how this is a make or break year in Minneapolis for coach Brad Childress. Simons says Childress finds himself in a peculiar situation with Jackson because he stuck his neck out for him when he drafted him, but now appears to have no use for him, “I don’t think he’ll be traded. I think he’ll be the third quarterback or surprisingly be released.”
