Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson found out that the team had acquired QB Sage Rosenfels about four days before the team officially announced the trade. The Star-Tribune reports that when Jackson heard the news, he was unfazed and actually looks forward to a little healthy competition.
- “I’m still going to compete, and I’ll do exactly what I normally do,” he said. “I’ll do a lot better hopefully [than 2008]. I’m going to work hard. This might push me a little more but that’s what competition is all about. I’m not approaching this any differently than I did last year because I still went out and competed.”
