I think you might be underestimating the market for veteran QBs, especially when it comes to teams with rookie QBs.

How long should they wait for him to be released? We could hold him right up until the season starts. If Minny really wants him they're going to want to get him into their camp sooner rather than later.

If he was traded to the Vikings and knowing the contract issues they face with Bernard Berrian and Chad Greenway, would you want either of those guys?
I'd take Greenway, but where would he play? Is he suited for ILB in a 3-4?

I am glad to see I am not the only one coveting Hawkeyes.

I agree with Mooby. If we feel like he's a fit as a 3-4 ILB, then heck yeah I'd take that guy. Him and Fletch inside with Kerrigan and Rak outside? Yes, please. We're gonna need someone to fill in for Fletch sooner rather than later anyway.

I love me some Chad Greenway but at 242 lbs. he's a bit small for a 3-4 ILB.

The said Rotoworld report links to the following article as its source.

Report of Vikings trade for McNabb is premature | ProFootballTalk

In short, JLC gets owned again.

I just think that they had Jackson sitting there, he's got game experience, why not just let him play instead of trading for McNabb? That way they keep the picks.... and to be honest, at this point, is there a big upgrade between McNabb and Jackson??

I honestly gotta see it to believe it. I just can't see Minnesota giving up more picks, espeically after the Moss trade last year. But hopefully they will!

What about Gerald Hayes, Cardinals LB, would anyone be interested in him?

Well, the Vikes probably know less about McNabb than we do, similar to how Philly knew more about McNabb prior to "The Trade". Not to mention that they might overrate their own team based on that playoff run a couple years ago.

Eh. Not a bad player but probably not a difference maker.

Had a conversation with McNabb. Contrary to what's being reported, he's not holding up the trade, skins are. Won't be there tomorrow.
