Vikings trying to trade Tarvaris Jackson

Vikings have four quarterbacks on their roster, which must be trimmed to 53 players by Saturday.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Tarvaris Jackson has been the subject of trade rumors since Brett Favre arrived. However, it remains unclear which direction the Vikings will go if they are unable to trade Jackson.

Childress said Favre will not play Friday (teams typically rest their starters for the final preseason game) so that means Jackson, Sage Rosenfels and John David Booty will split playing time.

Jackson says knee will be fine

Tarvaris Jackson said his sprained left knee should be 100 percent by the time the Vikings open the preseason Aug. 14 in Indianapolis, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Jackson admitted that he feared the worst after he tripped over defensive tackle Letroy Guion during a Saturday practice and fell to the ground.

Pat Williams calls out Tarvaris Jackson

Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams delivered a strong message to quarterback Tarvaris Jackson by telling him to work harder, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Jackson is locked in a fight for the starting quarterback job with Sage Rosenfels.

On Sirius NFL Radio recently Williams stated, "This ain't college no more. This is the NFL. You have to put in more time than you are used to putting in. If you are putting in four hours, you have to put in eight. You have to put in more time than what he's doing."

The Vikings created a quarterback competition when they acquired Rosenfels in a February trade with Houston. Combined with Jackson's struggles, the trade was interpreted to mean Rosenfels likely would be the starter next season.
