Sage Rosenfels Claimed By Vikings Off Waiver Wire

The Minnesota Vikings claimed quarterback Sage Rosenfels off waivers today, according to a report from Fox Sports. The move comes a day after the Vikings released Donovan McNabb, and a day after the Dolphins waived Rosenfels. Minnesota gets a veteran quarterback to work with and backup rookie Christian Ponder

Rosenfels spent the 2009 season in Minnesota, backing up none other than Brett Favre. Rosenfels, 33, came to the league in 2001 as a fourth-round pick of the Washington Redskins. He has started 12 times, mostly during a three-year stint with the Texans. He has a 62.5 percent completion rate in his career with 30 touchdowns and 29 interceptions. 

Rosenfels started the season with the Giants, but strep throat and a blood infection kept him off the field. Miami claimed him, but he spent his time there on the reserve/non-football injury list. 

Rosenfels was claimed while no team took a chance on McNabb or his remaining salary. Joe Webb, a second-year player, is the Vikings' third quarterback, for now.
