Tarvaris Jackson To Demand Trade Out Of Minnesota?
There are reports being circulated that upon Brett Favre’s eventual signing, Tarvaris Jackson will request (or demand) to be traded.
Forget about the Favre signing. Just trade the guy now.
Get what you can for him. He has decent stats and has some playing experience in the West Coast Offense.
All of that makes him an immediately solid back-up for St. Louis and Seattle, and he could even be considered for clipboard duty in Chicago, Washington, Carolina, or San Francisco.
The fact is, despite his ineffectiveness and poor accuracy at times, Jackson is still only 26, and still has a ton of potential.
Coming from a Favre-to-Vikings promoter, and a usually “down on Tarvaris” writer-this means something.
Jackson is done in Minnesota. Dead, drowned, beaten and left to breathe his last breath.
Face it, deal with it, accept it. It’s over.
Even if Favre signs, breaks his hip, and screams “curses” all across the NFL world, Sage Rosenfels would probably get the go-ahead over Jackson, at this point.
Dare I even go as far as mentioning John David Booty?
Jackson is a mobile quarterback with a decent arm that can make some plays every so often.
An accurate, clutch, game-managers, he is not.
There are several teams (in the NFC, alone) that could use a quality back-up. Some could even use a starter-and almost all of them wouldn’t mind grabbing a cheap project passer to play with.
Consider Tarvaris Jackson the newest ball of yarn, and the rest of the NFL a litter of cats eager to pick and prod at him.
He may get cut up and scratched a bit, but he’s worth a sniff.
The general consensus was that Jackson’s (along with man-lover Brad Childress) days were already numbered, pre-Favre rumors.
Now that number four is actually on his way in? Yeah, numero seis is toast.
But enough with Spanish, he-said/she-said’s, and semantics.
The guy is heading somewhere besides Minnesota’s starting line-up or bench.
The real questions is, where?
