What could have been in Minnesota …

Last offseason, the Texans and Vikings discussed a deal that would have sent quarterback Sage Rosenfels from Houston to Minnesota for a draft pick. Houston was thought to be asking for a second-round pick, and Minnesota was thought to be offering a fourth-round pick. When the two sides couldn’t agree, the trade died.

Looking back on it now, Rosenfels might well have been worth a second-rounder. Had he been in Minnesota, he could have won the starting job and foundĀ himself entrenched as the Vikings’ quarterback. Who knows if Minnesota would be 0-2 right now? It means nothing today, but it’s interesting to consider what nearly happened.
