The Houston Texans are about to sign QB Quinn Gray to a one-year deal. This will give them three fairly experienced quarterbacks, with Matt Schaub and Sage Rosenfels already in the mix.
The Vikings, as we know, pursued Rosenfels earlier in the off-season, but were unwilling to give the Texans the second-round pick they wanted in exchange. The Gray signing, however, would seem to make Rosenfels more expendable than before. So, presumably, Houston would be willing to now take a lower draft pick. Unless of course there are several teams bidding for Sage’s services, in which case the price would likely remain a second-rounder.
A couple teams still have what would seem to be rather glaring holes at quarterback, including the Raiders and Packers. It appears the Vikings will be competing with those two teams for whatever scraps are still available the rest of the off-season. The Vikings are also looking seriously at Delaware quarterback Joe Flacco in the draft.
