Rosenfels hints at “crazy” rumor

Getty Images

During his playing career, quarterback Sage Rosenfels became best known for his on-field homage to John Elway, which had a slightly different ending.  As Rosenfels slides into a potential media career, he could be attempting to perform an off-field homage to Jay Glazer.

The ending to this one is still to be determined.

On Wednesday, Rosenfels said on Twitter that he’s “[h]earing a crazy #NFL rumor,” and that “[i]f/when [it’s] confirmed, it [will] hugely affect two franchises.”

Rosenfels later said that he’s trying to confirm the rumor, acknowledging (in jest, it appears) that he could be beaten to the punch by the likes of Adam Schefter, Chris Mortensen, or Glazer.

Of course, it may never be confirmed, which means we’ll never know whether Rosenfels’ latest move ends with a fumble, a Super Bowl win, or something in between.

    Tom Brady to the Browns confirmed.

    What’s funny about that play is that it was called to be a QB run. Such a terrible idea when it was decided on the fly can be forgiven, but to plan for Rosenfels to run. What could go wrong?

    Given the current state of QBing in the NFL, Rosenfels could probably find teams willing to give him a look if he wanted to work at it. He was nothing special, but he was better than a lot of the 2nd and 3rd stringers taking up roster spots right now.

    Just as long as he’s listening to Adam Schefter and not “AdaRn Schefter”. AmiRite?

    oi vey, I bet he lands a good job in the media somewhere.

    Without even a guess as to what the rumor is this is a completely pointless story, next please.

    Drew Brees to the Texans.

  8. wydok says: Aug 14, 2014 9:11 AM

    Cardinals is trading Patrick Peterson and a 2nd round pick to the Eagles for Mark Sanchez.

    Andre Johnson to Foxboro. ..just say it !!!!

  10. wydok says: Aug 14, 2014 9:13 AM

    LeBron James is getting traded for Johnny Manziel.

    My guess is the likes of Adam Schefter, Chris Mortensen, and Jay Glazer hear rumors everyday and have learned the difference between when to report that they have heard a rumor and when to keep their mouth shut because it is probably B.S.

    I have no doubt that he heard something. Whether there is anything to it, we’ll see.

    Sludge Rosenflop

  13. chrisk61 says: Aug 14, 2014 9:21 AM

  14. purpleguy says: Aug 14, 2014 9:28 AM

    Clay Mathews is gonna cut his hair and give the extra to his coordinator Dom Capers to assist his comb-over.

    How about Romo to Buffalo? Bills management needs to win now to have any shot at staying on after new ownership. Everybody knows Emanual sucks.

    Jerry might finally realize his team sucks and it is time to rebuild. This way he gets out of Romo’s deal and can get say a 1st rounder in 2015.

    The Brandon Weeden era in Dallas will be short lived.

  18. drumzan says: Aug 14, 2014 9:50 AM

    Michael Egnew for JJ Watt. #Confirmed

  19. coonsqualler says: Aug 14, 2014 9:53 AM

    Hoyer to Dallas…Then he can take Weeden’s job again…LOL

    I was in the front yard raking leaves when i heard screams coming from my neighbors houses. With Colts down 27-10 and 5 minutes to play, i had given up. Thank you Sage for that great memory.

  21. doctormantistoboggan says: Aug 14, 2014 10:09 AM

    God I can’t stop watching the Rosen-coptor on that play against Lord Manning and the Colts.

  22. schmitty2 says: Aug 14, 2014 10:31 AM

    I think I might be going “crazy” for actually reading an article about Sage Rosenfels.

  23. pftcoachmen says: Aug 14, 2014 10:31 AM

    Obviously a Qb to the Texans.

    Who is it. Cassel, Hoyer or Mallett. All 3 have operated that offense.

    IMO : Cassel, a vet with 2 yr deal in place. So when they get Hundley, he can back up.

    I would say fans of The Jacksonville Football Team, The St. Louis NFL Franchise, The Football Team from San Diego, and the Oakland team should be on watch.

  26. rayvid says: Aug 14, 2014 11:31 AM

    Rosen-Copter is talking about the Andre Johnson to Cleveland for Hoyer. Not going to happen. Rosen-Copter is a bigger idiot off the field than he was on the field.

  27. iluvanejos says: Aug 14, 2014 11:38 AM

    Andre Johnson for Darrelle Revis

  28. rayvid says: Aug 14, 2014 11:51 AM

    That’s even crazier than the other rumor.

  29. coltzfan166 says: Aug 14, 2014 11:55 AM

    That narrows it down to about 6,543 things

  30. rayvid says: Aug 14, 2014 11:57 AM

    There is no doubt in my mind because it is being talked about on radio here in Houston and dismissed. It’s Johnson for Hoyer.

  31. dalcow4 says: Aug 14, 2014 12:57 PM

    Can’t wait to hear.

    Rob Lowe

    In regards to this “on-field homage to John Elway” I’m pretty sure Elway got a first-down in the SB not a fumble in some meaningless game. As you were.

  33. ejheim62 says: Aug 14, 2014 2:48 PM

    so the huge rumor. It should go like this. The NFL is going to move not one, not two, but FOUR teams after this season. Raiders to San Antonio. Chargers move to LA. Buffalo moves to Toronto. And Jacksonville moves to….London! there, that about covers it.

  34. doubleogator says: Aug 14, 2014 4:21 PM

    Oakland and Buffalo to London…
