When news of preliminary trade talks between the Raiders and Vikings regarding quarterback Sage Rosenfels surfaced Sunday, Florio doubted whether a deal would happen.
Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune feels the same way.
Whether Brett Favre has expressly told the Vikings he’ll show up to work after training camp or not, the Vikings will still need two quality arms to deliver the football until Favre arrives.
At this point, it would be a surprise if Favre shows up any earlier than he did last year.
Zulgad also notes that two NFL sources said Sunday they have “no knowledge of trade
talks involving Rosenfels.”
The move does make some sense for both sides, but it’s hard to imagine anything happening on this front anytime soon.
