Vikings Plan No Tender Offer for Tarvaris Jackson

In a news flash that will not surprise anyone in the NFL, Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he does not expect the Vikings to tag him with a restricted tender offer. Tavaris might be the only football mind who thought the Vikings might try to retain him.

Minnesota’s love affair with Brett Favre the past two seasons has made it crystal clear that Jackson is not in their future plans.

Jackson is one of nine Vikings free agents with less than six years of service, which means the Vikings can tag them with a one-year tender by 3 p.m. on Thursday. That might mean nothing, of course, in light of what the new Collective Bargaining Agreement will look like after Thursday night.

Jackson may attract some interest as a backup-perhaps to a team like the Eagles if they do trade Kevin Kolb.

    Tjack has a football mind? could have fooled me. Agree Cal, low tag him what the hell this draft is pretty deep and even a 6th or 7th could add some depth.

      Dumb retarded ass? He may not be the best QB, but he doesn’t deserve to be called like this. Get a grip, man.

    Just read Rice got 1st round tendered. Im sure Adam will post all the tenders from today.

    Carson Palmer says he has $ 80 million in the bank. At the age of 31 doesn’t need to play for just anybody next year.

    Jarious Jackson (former Bronco) re-signed as backup QB for BC Lion. Salary of $ 140,000 makes him CFL’s highest paid backup.
