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.
