I just finished up writing some paragraphs for a soon-to-come collaborative post we’ll be putting up with some of our blogosphere friends, and (spoiler alert) at one point I talk about how I would be nervous about Joe Webb as my number two quarterback if I were the Vikings. In the post, I say I would be really wanting to upgrade my backup quarterback and slide Webb down to number three, as a situation change-of-pace type of player.
So, I finish typing that, and then I see a report that left me in a slight state of disbelief.
Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports stated on Twitter if Seattle’s other two top quarterbacks come out of Friday’s preseason game unscathed then we can expect to see the Seahawks trade Tarvaris Jackson on Saturday. Okay, that isn’t too weird, right?
Then, Cole goes on to say that “many teams” have interest in Jackson. Three of those teams are Green Bay, Miami, and San Diego. Okay, so still not overly weird, but the level of interest is kind of surprising, right?
Alright, here’s where things get weird.
The fourth team listed as having interest in obtaining Jackson?
Yup, you guessed it… the Minnesota Vikings.
Have at it VT folks, what do you all think about this one?
