Vikes dangling Tarvaris Jackson?

The Minnesota Vikings initially had no plans to move any of their barbershop quartet of quarterbacks, keeping Brett Favre, Sage Rosenfels, Tarvaris Jackson, and John David Booty on the roster.

But now that Favre has shown that he can still play (despite partially torn rotator cuff, cracked rib, swine flu, and polio), they might not need to keep all four around.

It previously was believed (by us) that they’d keep Favre, Rosenfels, and Jackson, with Booty cut and then signed to the practice squad, if not claimed on waivers.

But Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Jackson is the odd man out, and that the Vikings are trying to trade him.

Then again, it’s not clear whether Walters is “reporting” that notion.  He merely calls the possibility of a trade effort a “good bet.”

Walters also says it’s a “good bet” that the Vikings will try to move up in the 2010 draft to get one of the elite quarterbacks.  (Of course, this assumes that they won’t finish in position to get one without having to move up.)

We’re still not sure that the Vikings should let Jackson go.  If there’s still a faction of Vikings who’d like to see Jackson play, it makes sense to get him out of the locker room.  Also, if Jackson has a stick in his rear end about his status on the depth chart, it might be better from him to move on, and move out.

Jackson hardly was showcased Monday night, throwing only two passes.  Ten days earlier, he completed 12 of 15 and cranked out a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

Another dynamic to keep in mind is the fact that the Packers run a very similar offense, and that Jackson has more career starts that Green Bay starter Aaron Rodgers.  Jackson would give the Packers a more steady hand in the event Rodgers gets injured — and Jackson would carry into Lambeau Field plenty of institutional knowledge regarding the manner in which Minnesota does business. 

So, if the Vikings can’t trade him somewhere else (perhaps with a clause that will keep him from being flipped to the Pack), it might make sense to keep him around, especially since his base salary is only $535,000.

    I would keep him, but if I was T-Jax, I would be tryng to go to Carolina!

  2. gwinn1952 says: Sep 1, 2009 7:37 AM

    Can you not write an article that slams Brett…..what do you have against him. Vikings would be stupid to trade Jackson now…..should Farve go down they’d have two QB’s to choose from. Besides Jackson can learn from Brett and hopefully still be the QB of the future.

  3. tv says: Sep 1, 2009 7:37 AM

    I wonder if he is dangling like Siancoe was last year on national TV?

  4. Alfie says: Sep 1, 2009 7:41 AM

    *cough*Jacksonville*cough*
    With Schefter reporting Tyler Thigpen is off the market, don’t be shocked to see Jacksonville make a play for Jackson.

  5. DonTerrelli says: Sep 1, 2009 7:51 AM

    I wish my base salary was only $535, 000

  6. JimmySmith says: Sep 1, 2009 7:54 AM

    No need to include a clause preventing T Jack Off to go to the Packers, they already have a locker room attendant and full time janitorial services. I am not privy to the Packer’s financials but I suspect they pay significantly less that $535,000 for those duties.

  7. TFBuckFutter says: Sep 1, 2009 7:59 AM

    The Bucs are interested. VERY interested.
    I’m not basing that on anything but his “available quarterback” status.

  8. jsavage58 says: Sep 1, 2009 8:03 AM

    polio and swine flu comment only go on to cement the fact that you take the favre ordeal more personally than just a rumor mill. You are such a friggen homo florio, you have to go pull your cack out of your own ass. at least make an attempt to get your site back to where it was 2 years ago before you started leg humping the big media.

  9. TFBuckFutter says: Sep 1, 2009 8:13 AM

    Also, Mike, I am highly disappointed in you.
    A Vikings article, using the word “dangling” in the title….and no Visanthe Shiancoe joke? Come on man. Get it together.

  10. HAUS says: Sep 1, 2009 8:15 AM

    Or they could trade Sage back to the Texans for a 2nd rounder.

  11. mark says: Sep 1, 2009 8:41 AM

    Umm…we get it. You aren’t fans of the ongoing Favre drama, but hey, he’s back and playing now so lets move on. Its been known for a while that his arm is not 100% and whether he has a cracked rib or not, he played more than a half. I could see if he was sitting on the bench crying about being hurt and saying that he can’t play right now because of it. Thats not the case though. He’s playing so far and hasn’t used the possible injuries as an excuse. Therefore I don’t see why you have to harp on him in three different posts, exaggerating his level of injury….

  12. sand0 says: Sep 1, 2009 8:45 AM

    Not to hate on you Florio, but I do believe that you are the last “analyst” on earth that still believes there is a faction of Vikings players preferring Jackson. Even ESPN seems to be refuting that claim.
    The best fit for Jackson would be Green Bay I think. They don’t like to pay any salary for players and Jackson is only making $550k or so. Seems like a match made in heaven.

  13. Spanky says: Sep 1, 2009 8:46 AM

    You are using Charley Walters as a source now? This guy is a hack…he throw out random rumors that he makes up 99% of the time. If Charley usually says something it is not going to happen. Do some real investigating!

  14. Vikes-N-Favre says: Sep 1, 2009 8:46 AM

    But now that Favre has shown that he can still play (despite partially torn rotator cuff, cracked rib, swine flu, and polio), they might not need to keep all four around.
    ***********************************************
    Right there is your problem Florio.. People may think you cracks, jokes, insults, whatever it you call them are funny if maybe you didn’t attempt one in every damn article you write. Seriously, do you have alzheimers? Because I believe I heard these exact same words about this exact same player from you before.
    Also, guessing that TJ would be a good fit in GB because he could let them know some secrets about our offense, he couldn’t even run this offense after 3 years and going into his 4th year. Besides, if you knew anything about football (which you clearly don’t because you are wrong on EVERYTHING that you write) you would know that another team in the NFL will offer something for TJ, and Minnesota WILL NOT TRADE HIM TO GB.. I will write this again later just in case your alzheimers kicks in..

  17. Filbertkiwi71 says: Sep 1, 2009 9:13 AM

    You guys need to lighten up. Florio has been writing like this for years, long before his site became part of NBCsports. If you don’t have a sense of humor, perhaps this site is not for you. If all you have to be worried about in life is to get worked up over a Mike Florio column, then you are pretty damn lucky.
    I don’t know what has happened. For some reason since Florio’s site has become part of NBCsports, many of the people who post comments have gotten awfully thin skinned and whiny.
    Florio has taken verbal shots at my favorite team and favorite players andhas for years. It is really no big deal and nothing to get your panties in a wad over. If Mike can get you all worked up over what he writes, then he must be a pretty damn good writer.
    Keep up the good work Mike.

  18. DonTerrelli says: Sep 1, 2009 9:14 AM

    Yeah, what’s the facination with Sage?

  19. zygi milf says: Sep 1, 2009 9:20 AM

    You are actually posting another Charley Walters shot in the dark?
    Unless they can profit from Rosenfels, as HAUS suggested, Booty gets cut. Favre is almost 40 and one good hit away from retirement. They need the experienced QBs just in case.

  20. tian says: Sep 1, 2009 9:21 AM

    Let me say this: I am not a fan of the Farve move. I still do not think that he will be able to complete the season.
    And here’s my thought process behind this: Farve is old. And why trade or irritate your future in order to temporarily have a name at QB. And I still think that it’s not a good deal.
    But I have to give props: Farve looked good. And he looked mobile. And he made good reads. And he recognized that this is AP’s team.
    But I also think that T-Jax could have made the same plays. And he’s even more mobile. And he can make good reads, too.
    So the Vikings, I think, is still gambling. And they are gambling with their future. But for T-Jax’s sake, they can trade him and he’ll be fine with it.

  21. Claudio says: Sep 1, 2009 9:23 AM

    How many dumbshits are there in these forums? You guys are ripping Florio all the time and yet you constantly read all his articles here. Saying he’s slamming Favre! GTFO with that. It’s a joke. You know, like your life.

  23. govikings27 says: Sep 1, 2009 9:32 AM

    Vikings looked really strong last night.. Brett looked solid, and the overall team looked ready for week one. Are pack and bears fans still going to talk about how horrible he is, or can they admit that the offense is simply better with him at the helm. It was only a pre-season game, but it sure did put some questions to rest…

  24. Dewey Axewound says: Sep 1, 2009 9:32 AM

    Send him to the Bears.
    He’ll be a slight upgrade over 3rd stringer Brent Basanez.
    *SLIGHT* being the operative word.
    Plus, they can debrief him on the Queens playbook/verbiage, etc, (all 6 pages!).
    And assuming, of course, that that single-digit wonderlic brain of his retains anything for longer than the duration of an average Spongebob episode.

  25. Fan_Of_ Four says: Sep 1, 2009 9:41 AM

    Its freaking hilarious how much you continue to slam Favre when he’s obviously a cash cow for you. You love having Favre back in the league, all you have to do is mention his name and your article gets tons of hits. You ain’t fooling anyone with your backhanded comments. We know you’d drop the soap for him if you were cell mates.

  26. Zox says: Sep 1, 2009 9:42 AM

    Jags already have Tavaris Jackson on their team. His name is David Garrard.

  27. StartTarvaris says: Sep 1, 2009 9:50 AM

    From a fan’s perspective I would like to see T-Jack stay except the team handled the Favre signing terribly and despite the fact he’s played better than Sage in pre-season, I don’t think the team wants to pay Sage that much to be 3rd string. So it’s time for him to move on. Green Bay, Jacksonville, San Fran, Denver..somewhere.

  28. BlacknBlue says: Sep 1, 2009 10:00 AM

    this is a BLOG site. Florio writes his BLOGS, not news articles. He adds humor to keep it in the spirit of a blog, but the newbies keep getting their panties in a blog when their team gets poked fun at. Get over your self-rightousness or quit visiting.

  29. JuicyMelon says: Sep 1, 2009 10:18 AM

    StartTarvaris,
    San Fran could be perfect. I went with Carolina because I don’t like Delhomme, but Singletary is a great coach that T-Jax could learn a lot about Defenses from. That might just be the perfect situation for all involved.

  31. Bob Nelson says: Sep 1, 2009 11:03 AM

    It is an insult to any team to suggest interest in Tarvaris Jackson.
    Jackson cannot even wear a baseball cap properly. When he is on the sidelines he never does any activity to help the team. he just sits there not even paying attention to the game.
    His lack of motivation for which he was called out publicly by teammates, led to his downfall. He is no better today than the day the vikings foolishly spent multiple picks to move up and draft(the person that made the decision was fired). He never put in any effort to improve.
    His low Wonderlic score relativeto other QB’s r than other QB’s not less.
    UFL back up or possibly with luck a CFL back up his NFL career is over.

  32. RIP__21 says: Sep 1, 2009 11:11 AM

    They bring in the int machine Favre for 12.5M a year but cant keep T jax for 535k? The guy is inconsistent but has shown signs he can play well. At best they could get a 5th or 6th rounder for em. Why not just keep em for depth and see if he can develop. Vikes will need a new starting qb next year anyway.

  33. purpleguy says: Sep 1, 2009 11:19 AM

    Charlie Walters hasn’t written an accurate article in 5 years — they’re all based on speculation.
    Favre was just okay, nothing to pop a chubbie over. The economics favor a T-Jack trade, although I can’t imagine the Vikes agreeing to trade him within the NFC North, even if his crappy play would probably benefit the Vikes.
    And the road and bridges down the road ain’t any more certain for the Bears than the Vikes, particularly given the Bears back-up QB situation and the health of its secondary. Wasn’t it the Bears, not the Vikes, whose sunny train ride crashed over the cliff at the end of last season? Hell, they just signed Hood, a guy the slowest Viking WR toasted on a double move vs the Cards last year for about 50 yards.

  34. Colinito says: Sep 1, 2009 11:37 AM

    you obviously haven’t followed the Vikes beat long enough to know Charley Walters never bases anything on fact… for years he was predicting Fitz’s return to MSP, likely out of his own man-love for the dude. He just says stuff, unlike the other Minnesota writers like Zulgad and Jensen who actually have sources and write things based in reality. non-story

  35. KevinFaulk-an-a says: Sep 1, 2009 12:18 PM

    I certainly have never been impressed with Tavaris Jackson’s abilities, but right abut now he’d look pretty good sitting beside Tom Brady.
    Give him a call Bill.

  36. Tjackfan says: Sep 1, 2009 12:24 PM

    If the Vikings let Jackson go, the Wilf brothers better get matching “Do Not Enter” tattoos on their buttocks, because he is going to stick it to them the first chance he gets.

    I guess there is not much to say about this. Too funny.
    This from a guy, who if/when Erin gets hurt, has no legitmate back-up to speak of, I’d take Tjax over either one of those scrubs.
    But, the Packer fan mantra:
    Anything Packer good, anything Viking bad.
    Mongo like candy!!
    A guy who can’t put a sentence together making fun of a wonderlic score……..Too precious!!

  38. TheHydra says: Sep 1, 2009 12:48 PM

    when Rodgers gets hurt Ragnar? He played through a seperated throwing shoulder at a near pro bowl level. Favre never did that. Matt Flynn would do just fine until they brough in a vet depending upon where they are in the standings. If they are 9-1 and something happens to Rodgers (which you say is a matter of when) you can bet your ass they will bring in the best QB available. Teams have plans for these kinds of things. They arent going to risk their season based upon whether or not one player gets hurt. The have Flynn and Brohm to develop. There is a reason why they are on the roster. Now, there is also a contingency in place that probably does nto involve either of those two if Aaron were to go down mid season. The exception would be if the team were out of contention. Then theyd let Flynn play. Not everything is on the surface for us average fans to know about.

    What call Doug Pederson?
    Don’t worry about 9-1, that sad sack team won’t see that record this year.
    By the way if/when = if OR when.
    You have no clue if they have a contingency plan or not, from your posts, you seem to come across as someone who thinks they know more than the rest of us. Let me give it to you chapter and verse: you don’t.
    You have no clue what goes on in any orginization. Neither do I. You may hope things, but that’s about it.
    That “Contingency” , if he isn’t on the roster, isn’t going to do a whole lot of good, it’ll take 2-4 weeks to learn the play calling.
    Keep the pipeline to Gb open, I’m dying to hear what roster moves they are going to make before everyone else……..

    You Viking idiots/hypocrites get worse every day. The Pack and Bears have both been demolishing opposing teams for weeks no, and morons like Ragnar and GoVicodin say ‘it’s only preaseason, it doesn’t mean shit’..
    Favre and Co. have ONE fairly good, and again, preseason, game, and it’s ‘Vikings look great, solid, etc.. They’re gonna dominate this year!’
    Which is it?!!

  44. doug r says: Sep 1, 2009 2:19 PM

    Can we start the discussion over whether Favre will play or not next year? I can’t wait for that discussion!

  45. Tabemaju says: Sep 1, 2009 2:25 PM

    Bob, you’re being about as stupid as Walters now.
    Jackson was never called out for his lack of motivation, and in fact over the last few years he’s been nothing but praised for his dedication. Of course, you’d have to reach outside the blinders of PFT to see that, but you wouldn’t be able to bash on the story in the comments, so I guess that’s out of the question. The story that you’re referencing is from Pat Williams, simply stating that Jackson needs to keep working and putting in more time. Florio made the assumption that Pat was saying that Jackson isn’t working hard enough and even though it was later debunked by Pat himself, Florio never bothered to write about it.
    The reason people like Jackson is his motivation, his want to improve, and the fact that he’s a good kid.
    Unfortunately, he doesn’t have the head to be a starting QB in the NFL. I’m assuming that’s what you were attempting to say with the wonderlic comment. He is, though, a good backup. When he’s able to come into the game unexpected, he does well, because he’s just playing, not letting his mind get in the way of meeting expectations.

  46. SpartaChris says: Sep 1, 2009 2:29 PM

    @Beer Cheese Soup-
    You don’t honestly expect an answer, do you?
    Brett Favre goes 13/18 for 142 yards & 1 TD and it’s a “great game” according to Viking fans.
    Aaron Rodgers goes 14/19 for 258 & 3 TDs and it’s “only preaseason” according to Viking fans.
    Total hypocrisy at it’s finest. But I guess that’s me being a “Brett Favre basher, or a “jilted Packers fan,” at least according to Retard.

  47. TheHydra says: Sep 1, 2009 2:40 PM

    Yes Ragnar they do prepare for more scenarios then you could ever dream. Sad sack team? What are you basing that off of?

  48. RagnartheViking says: Sep 1, 2009 2:59 PM

    The reason people are saying it is solid is because you Packer jagoffs were predicting gloom and doom on the “cracked rib” thread, also predicting a train wreck etc. ad infinitum.
    Yep, it’s only preseason, that’s what I’m saying, for all teams involved.
    Go ahead and blowout teams now. If you don’t understand the games are meaningless, i don’t know what to tell you.
    What I AM saying, is that there were predictions that he was going to play like crap, or not even play. He Played well, looked good, and still you bash him.
    Erin has looked very good, he did last year too in the reg. season, put up some pretty stats and went 6-10.
    It’s you idiots that are unbearable, bragging coming off a 6-10 season.
    In 2 weeks we will see, when the games count.
    But for you Packer fans to discount Favre just because he’s a Viking now, is the height of hypocrisy.
    By the way Sparta, nice with the retard bit, another chris original…I need to start writing these jokes down……
    Beer cheese…..which way is it? It’s whatever way fits my arguement at the time…..that’s all this site is.

    Exactly Sparta, and thank you for getting those stats so I didn’t have to, I appreciate that.
    However, of course I expect an answer from Ragnar. He’s never able to resist retorting to these “Viking bashing” posts, no matter if you prove him wrong with actual facts or not.

    Don’t forget 2 TDs to 13 ints in his last several outings against the Bears (including three pick-6’s: Briggs, Urlacher, and Vasher, I believe).

    No, that’s Vikings fans saying…Okay we know what we got with Favre. He can still play, hand the ball of to AD, Special Teams is dramatically improved, and our D looks good. That’s a great game because we know that Favre can play and that he can open the field for AD.
    That’s also Vikings fans stating that A-Rodgers has gone 6-10 last year, with the same team this year, and better Vikings, Bears, and Lions. It should be only preseason for Packers fans as well. I am not going to bash Rodgers. The comparission from Favre to Rodgers is seriously stupid. Favre is a legend and Rodgers is…6-10.
    I find it funny that all the Packers fans are up in arms over their team. Why? Did they get a great free agent? How about a good draft pick (Raji and Matthews are going to be subpar this season)? Switching a defense. And they are doing good in the preseason. I give them some kudos, but it is just the preseason. The Vikings, for the first time in three years, had a quarterback who knew what to do and could score points if needed. Last year the Vikes took the Division with Freotte and T-Jax. Favre and Harvin are an upgrade.

    Walters is full of crap! Can’t believe you haven’t realized that yet! You’ve even been informed!
    You clearly missed his article the week of the Favre signing where he stated they wouldn’t even keep 4 receivers past that friday!!!
    A couple years ago he spouted nonsense about a Mcnabb trade.
    The guy literally throws crap against the wall on a regular basis and none of it sticks, but he keeps doing it!

    I feel sorry for all five of the reasonable Viking fans in the world who get a bad rep just because of flaming, trolling inbred homers like you.
    Hate on us all you want, but we argue with FACTS, not whatever fits our current mood swings.
    Oh, and 6-10 was last season, you know.. like.. the past? The same ‘past’ that you always give us shit for bringing up??
    You contradict yourself more than any politician. Maybe you should be one. You are from Mini-Canada, where ANYONE can be elected after all.

    You don’t argue with fact: you argue with a Packer bias. I argue with a Viking bias.
    I can’t believe you of all people are going to castigate me for doing the same thing you and eveyone else on this site does: STIR THE SHIT!!
    Please if i irritate you that much, quit F’n responding to me……OK?!?!

    I do not have any “Packer bias”. I sure as hell like the Packers, but I’ve already admitted in several threads that AP is the best back currently in the league, that Jared Allen is a top 5 DE, that our season last year was a travesty, and that I feel Chicago will take the division this year.
    What is it with all Cowboys, Vikings (and Red Sox) fans thinking everyone in the country is just as insane as they are? We’re not. We have a grip on reality. We’re not such blind homers that we can’t admit there are, in fact, better teams in the league then our own.
    You will NEVER hear a Packer or Bear fan claim they’re going to the Superbowl before the season starts, (let alone in APRIL like the Viking faithful) even if they are, in fact, going to the Super Bowl that year.
    We are diehard fans, but we’re still rational, normal human beings. You are something else entirely.

    Id like to see where I ever said they were going to the super bowl.

    What are they? The exceptions that prove the rule?
