Vikings Free Agency 2012: Minnesota Interested In Re-Signing Sage Rosenfels

Peyton Manning is not the only free agent quarterback making news on Wednesday. Sage Rosenfels got a split second of ink. The Minnesota Vikings have an interest in re-signing Rosenfels as a backup in 2012, according to Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press.

The Vikings claimed Rosenfels off waivers from the Dolphins in December 2011. Rosenfels, 32, has not played a regular season snap since 2009, when he played in six game for the Houston Texans.

If the Vikings do re-sign Rosenfels, he would likely be the third quarterback behind Christian Ponder and Joe Webb. His most important function will be serving as a veteran mentor for Ponder.

Last season, the Vikings had toyed with Webb in special packages that took advantage of his versatility and athleticism. Webb was thrown into the fire after Ponder was injured. In late February, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said that the team would stick with Webb as a quarterback.
