Texans Trade Off QB Rosenfels To Vikings

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- The Minnesota Vikings have acquired
quarterback Sage Rosenfels from the Houston Texans and signed him
to a two-year, $9 million contract.

Rosenfels' agent, Rick Smith, says his client "is extremely
excited for this opportunity."

The 31-year-old Rosenfels will compete with incumbent Tarvaris
Jackson for the starting job.

It's the second season in a row that the Vikings have tried to
trade for Rosenfels. Last year, the two teams could not agree on
compensation, so Minnesota brought in veteran Gus Frerotte as a
backup.

Rosenfels went 2-3 in five starts for the injured Matt Schaub
last season. He threw for 1,431 yards with six touchdowns, 10
interceptions and a 66.7 completion percentage.
