Strike the Viks from the Cassel trade pike

By: Greg Rak
It seems like one of the likly landing spots for Matt Cassel is all but dried up. The Vikings have struck a deal with the Texans for back up QB Sage Rosenfels.

The Texans and Minnesota are close to completing a trade that would send quarterback Sage Rosenfels to the Vikings, possibly for a fourth-round
draft choice.This is the second year in a row in which the Vikings have been interested in
acquiring Rosenfels as their starting quarterback. Rosenfels, who won six games
in the last two seasons when replacing the injured Matt Schaub, is approaching
the last year of his contract. If the trade is completed, the Vikings will want
to extend Rosenfels' contract.- Houston Croncile

In my mind the Vikings were front runners for Matt Cassel and are a QB away from making the Super Bowl with AP. I would say the additon of Sage all but strikes the Viks from the possible destination for Matt. However Sage is not the answer in Minnesota. (He lost me money last year)

The possible destinations now look like: Lions, Cheifs, Bears, Buccs
