Bye bye Booty

There was a lot of debate in the preseason whether the Vikings would get rid of Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels after acquiring Brett Favre, since they already had a developmental third quarterback they liked in John David Booty.

Well they must not like Booty that much.

The Vikings released Booty off the team’s practice squad Wednesday in order to sign tackle Clint Oldenburg. 

Jackson is the team’s backup right now, but he’s not under contract next year.  Rosenfels edges out Byron Leftwich as the most expensive third quarterback in the league, but he’s the only quarterback on the roster the Vikings know for sure will be under their control in 2010.

    That’s too bad, I really liked John David Booty at USC (I’m a big college football fan and follower). However John David Booty showed absolutely nothing in film I saw of practice and pre season games. Absolutley nothing, no command of the offense, no on field abilities or talent whatsoever-I do wish him well.

    Chilly shakes his Booty

    Admit it. You just wanted to write “they must not like Booty that much” didn’t ya?
    It’s the NFL. Sooner or later, someone will say “Let’s get us some Booty” and it’ll be OK.

  8. wmt says: Oct 14, 2009 11:14 AM

    WOW…..that is HUGE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m going to run to my t.v. set to see if I can fins some expanded coverage on that one!!! I can’t get over this!!!!!!!

    He’ll be a Raider soon enough.!

  10. wydok says: Oct 14, 2009 11:16 AM

    Of course they like Booty. Don’t you remember the boat scandal a few years back?

  11. PervyHarvin says: Oct 14, 2009 11:16 AM

    Do you know how much Booty meant to our team?? Chilly threw his ass in a cab to the airport. Enough said.

  12. Felcus says: Oct 14, 2009 11:17 AM

    Next: Trade Jackson and a low draft pick to Cleveland for Brady Quinn.

  13. Resolution says: Oct 14, 2009 11:20 AM

    Looks like they didn’t do-it-all-for-the-booty, afterall

  14. Mean D says: Oct 14, 2009 11:22 AM

    Figures the Bucs would have the highest paid 3rd string QB in the NFL even though they have the lowest payroll. Pack of idiots.

  15. Larry David says: Oct 14, 2009 11:23 AM

    He’ll probably get resigned to thier practice squad at some point later in the year.

  16. brasho says: Oct 14, 2009 11:26 AM

    Don’t forget, no collective bargaining agreement means no free agency for Jackson.

  17. RaiderMight says: Oct 14, 2009 11:27 AM

    The Raiders should tap that booty. Toss him into the practice squad to see if he has anything to contirbute at this point. They should be pretty desperate at this point.

  18. PFTiswhatitis says: Oct 14, 2009 11:28 AM

    NO Booty Call in Minn

  19. Luke says: Oct 14, 2009 11:28 AM

    Isnt Favre under control of the Vikings for 2010 with his two year contract?

    “There was a lot of debate in the preseason whether the Vikings would get rid of Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels after acquiring Brett Favre, since they already had a developmental third quarterback they liked in John David Booty.”
    Im pretty sure your the one who just made up that they liked Booty. And your the only one who debated who would be cut, considering they could have cut any of those guys and it may have not even made any news splash

    Just waiting for the Packer fans to turn this into something about them………

    How does this look like BB right now? Did I miss something …. Just curious

  23. thom04 says: Oct 14, 2009 11:34 AM

    lets bring in brady quin and let him learn from the best

  24. mnmaverick says: Oct 14, 2009 11:42 AM

    Brady Quinn. Remember what team offered two first rounders for him last year? Yep, that team, the Minnesota Vikings. They can probably get him for peanuts now.

  25. Olbermanisadouche says: Oct 14, 2009 11:45 AM

    Booty hasn’t shown much upside since his arrival in MN so this doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

  26. Chasehunterj says: Oct 14, 2009 11:45 AM

    Bernard Pollard? Bernie’s a saint, dude. A whole SN trashing him? The guy is great, spent time with him several times at team and outside team function. Get a new SN.

  27. VikingsFan23 says: Oct 14, 2009 11:52 AM

    Felcus – I wouldn’t trade Jackson straight up for Quinn. Jackson at least has better physical attributes. Quinn doesn’t have the arm or the composure to be a starting NFL QB.
    As for Booty – I can just say that now the path is clear for the Vikes to get Riley Skinner in next year’s late rounds.

  28. nicewolf64 says: Oct 14, 2009 12:14 PM

    Expect some Booty calls this week

  29. PervyHarvin says: Oct 14, 2009 12:17 PM

    No Quinn in MN Bet the farm he never becomes anything.

  30. smithysmitherson says: Oct 14, 2009 12:23 PM

    Better title: “Vikes Kick Booty”.

  31. Citizen Strange says: Oct 14, 2009 12:26 PM

    I would have went with …

    If you couldn’t tell, BPIAA is a Patriots fan. He’s mad because Pollard took out Brady for the season even though Brady’s own lineman was at fault for the injury.

    GBISFULLOFFATTIES
    I’m guessing the connection is that the player they signed to replace Booty, Oldenburg, was originally drafted by Belichick in the crappy ’07 draft class, of which only Merriweather is still with the team.
    That’s quite a reach though. Oldenburg never made the team and Mangini immediately gobbled up the sloppy seconds in NY. He’s played for one or two other teams since then.

  35. bigbear6 says: Oct 14, 2009 1:10 PM

    so how long till the raiders make a play for another ineffective QB

  36. rolltide says: Oct 14, 2009 1:14 PM

    I think Booty will be fine.
    After all, he seems to have been storing nuts in his cheeks to last him all winter.

  37. purpleguy says: Oct 14, 2009 1:22 PM

    Wasted 5th round pick.

  38. dcfan-1212450 says: Oct 14, 2009 1:24 PM

    Of course the Vikings liked Booty. Everyone likes Booty. Booty is a wonderful thing. John David however was not that good a QB…

    Isnt Favre under control of the Vikings for 2010 with his two year contract?
    **************
    Favre has a contract thru 2010, but as we know with Favre, he is not under the Vikings control.
    But – then again, he is not Junior Seau, so if he retires after this season, we’ll hear about it all over again.

  40. Bob Nelson says: Oct 14, 2009 2:33 PM

    The vikings begged to trade away 2 draft picks to move up and draft Booty. Those picks were scooped up by a superior negotiator and drafter in Ted Thompson.
    The Packers have OT Breno Giacomini and QB Matt Flynn with those picks.
    Those silly bad drafting vikings got nothing.
    I wish those incompetent screwball vikings would beg to trade with the Packers more often.
    Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle.

    I don’t think the Vikes wasted a 5th round pick of Booty. You win some, you lose some. Simple as that
    and BOB, chuckle chuckle chuckle???

    The Booty was not what they hoped for. Arrrgggg. Maybe those scaliwags in Oakland will divide the plunder and bring it aboard. Yarrghhh

  46. CycloneFlyer says: Oct 14, 2009 6:13 PM

    TJack is under contract next year, unless you consider being a restricted free agent not being under contract.
    This is what the vikings did (pretty smart in my opinion too, the idea, not the quarterbacks).
    1. Favre plays this year and after the season doesn’t play again.
    2. TJack gets one last chance next season to be an NFL starter (we all know how much Chilly loves TJack). And nobody is going to offer TJack much more than $1 million a year after this season and with the vikings so far under the cap they will match the offer.
    3. If that doesn’t work out, midway through next season or after the season Rosenfels gets his shot after sitting in the offense for 2 years.
    THIS GUY IS AN IDIOT!!!!

    _________________________________
    Wow Bob, you’re really outdone yourself with this one, and that ain’t easy.
    There is not a WORSE drafter in the league than Ted, at least not now that Millen is gone. Childress is a blowhard and a moron, for sure, but even he can scout talent better than Albino Owl.
    The Vikings made a mistake taking Booty in the fifth. Thompson made a mistake taking Brohm in the SECOND. Which is the superior drafter again?
    Matt Flynn is a better QB than Brohm, but that does not make him a top backup in this league. We only got him because Thompson was too cheap to bring in a veteran QB. Flynn has heart, but be real: if Rodgers goes down this year (and he probably will, being behind the line TT the “superior drafter” put together), and Flynn comes in, We are F—ED.
    Breno Giacomini wouldn’t even make any team’s roster except GB, Oakland, and MAYBE Detroit. As Chicken said, he got beat out by Barbie. TT fubared that one so bad, he even swallowed his famous ego and admitted it. He had to sign a severely injured veteran to replace him.
    If Giacomini can’t beat out the human turnstile for a starting job, he’s not even a suitable practice squad player in this league.
    Once again, all fans of other teams, I beg you not to judge us all by the insane ramblings of Bob Nelson.

    I just cannot resist this, Bob.
    I try and try to leave off for days and days. You just won’t quit. You just can’t understand. I’m truly becoming slightly sorry for you. I mean, you are a human being, aren’t you? Maybe you’re not. Maybe you’re a genetically engineered cockroach that types with its mind. That would explain how you get up time and again after being hit by verbal trucks and blasted with verbal shotguns.
    Your latest epistle hit it on the head for me: You’re TOKYO ROSE!!! That’s it! The slutty tone, oozing with sensual confidence. The soft, easy words, which I took at first to be just kiddie banter, are really intended to appeal to Viking fans’ gentle nature and inner desire to love all things. That’s it. You meow like a pussycat, the Vikings fans get all squidgy inside and feel less like splattering the Cheezers all over Lambeau. You ooze little pattery wittiness. Smoooooth, Bobby. Smooooooooth.
    Gotcha. Now I have it. Ah HAA!

    “The Packers have OT Breno Giacomini and QB Matt Flynn with those picks.”
    Dude Breno Giacomini is nothing. He was a huge waste of a pick who has only appeared in two games since last season. It’s hard to believe he was actually battling for the starting RT job. He can never stay healthy.
