The latest NFL rumors indicate that the Minnesota Vikings are one of several teams interested in trading for Tarvaris Jackson. The quarterback spent five seasons in Minnesota before moving to Seattle last year.
The NFL rumor mill isn't usually too exciting at this point in the season, but the latest report is sure to rub some of those living in the Land of 10,000 Lakes the wrong way as reports indicate that the Minnesota Vikings are interested in trading for Tarvaris Jackson.
Yes, the same Jackson that the Vikings replaced when they drafted Christian Ponder in the first round of last year's NFL Draft.
Jackson started 14 games for the Seattle Seahawks last season, but the team decided to bring in a couple of potential replacements in former Green Bay Packers backup Matt Flynn and rookie Russell Wilson. They've both apparently impressed in preseason, too, as it sounds as though Jackson will be the odd man out in Seattle.
Assuming Flynn/Wilson are healthy after Fri game, expect Tarvaris Jackson to be traded Sat. Many teams interested, inc Miami, GB, Minn, SD.— Jason Cole (@JasonColeYahoo) August 20, 2012
It'd probably be just as weird to see Jackson back in a Vikings uniform as it would be to see him play for the Green Bay Packers, but both teams are apparently interested.
