Done Deal: Vikings announce McNabb trade
Question of the Day
“I think they all understand the goal is to bring a championship to Minnesota and this is a step towards getting that done,” Frazier said. “I’m hoping and believing this is not going to impede Christian’s progress, nor Joe’s. Both of those guys are people we still have a lot of high hopes for and we expect them to continue to get better and compete.”
McNabb has a history of helping other quarterbacks who are behind him on the roster, including Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick in Philly. Both have thanked McNabb for his willingness to give them pointers, guidance and advice, even though they were gunning for his job.
“I’ve been in the situation before, being the starter and they draft a young guy,” McNabb said, referring to when the Eagles drafted Kolb in 2007. “But you try to prepare yourself and go out on the field to do the right thing to contribute to winning while you’re helping the young guy along.”
The Vikings expect nothing less in Minnesota, where Ponder is the quarterback of the future. Just when that future begins is anyone’s guess. Minnesota has a roster full of players in their prime _ Adrian Peterson, Chad Greenway, Percy Harvin, Jared Allen, Visanthe Shiancoe _ or just past it _ Antoine Winfield, Kevin Williams, Steve Hutchinson.
None of those players are interested in a rebuilding project with a young quarterback learning on the job, and neither is Frazier.
“He’s a great quarterback, a Super Bowl quarterback,” Ayodele said. “It changes the team totally, having Donovan here. I know a lot of people are excited about it. I’m excited about it.”
Signing Ayodele, who started for the Saints the last two seasons, would seem to lessen the chance of 38-year-old nose tackle Pat Williams returning this year, while adding Aromashodu will bring some much-needed depth to the receiver corps.
The Vikings lost a bidding war to Seattle with No. 1 receiver Sidney Rice, so Harvin and Bernard Berrian are the only veteran receivers on the roster. Aromashodu isn’t being counted on to take Rice’s place. He only had 10 catches for 149 yards for the Bears last season.
