Earlier this week, Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post reported that he had "been hearing talk" that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson might ask for a trade when the team ends its soap opera/charade and signs Brett Favre. As usual, Lombardi has his antennae up in the right direction, because the rumors are more than just talk. Barring a dramatic change of heart, Jackson will indeed seek a trade when Favre ends his retirement for a second straight summer, sources say. Would there be any kind of market for Jackson's services? Probably not a huge one, but there will be some teams compelled to explore him. Jackson is only 26, has some starting experience now, and is probably better than a lot of the backups in the league.
