Sage Rosenfels flew into Minneapolis yesterday, and sat through a terrible snowstorm so he could be at Winter Park to officially be introduced as the newest member of the Vikings. I’m guessing he would’ve been pretty ticked if some last minute thing had come up – like the Vikes deciding to make a run at Kurt Warner – but that’s all moot now. According to Adam Caplan, the Vikes have officially completed the trade, sending a 4th rounder to Houston, and have signed Rosenfels to the rumored three-year, $9 million contract extension. So Sage is on-board. Wouldn’t it be nice to buy him a shiny new receiver to throw to?
Update: ESPN says Rosenfels’ extension is $9 million for two years, not three. He will undergo a physical this morning.
Update 2: ESPN is fulla beans. Rosenfels was due a little over one million on the last year of his Texans contract but when he signed the extension that was tossed. So it’s three years for $9 million, just like previously reported.
