I heard this rumored at the chili cookoff yesterday. Now the Chronicle is reporting
Rose to Vikes per Chron:
On the radio this morning about Weaver, can't find any printable source.
Anyone else hear?
I doubt they will offer a 3rd round pick again this year. Sage took care of that himself.
I was thinking 4th. I would say his value went down this season.
It'd be nice if it was a 3rd rounder or higher, but I'm not gonna hold my breath.
2nd source? - Link
I'll bet they take a 3rd this year...Pat White or Stephen McGee are the two names that come up as a replacement in the draft for a backup QB.
Haven't heard anything, but if this is true then that pretty much guarantees we are either signing a DE in FA or drafting one high (1st or 2nd round). Also gives us even more cap room to make a move in FA.
I can't find anything on Weaver.
Can we back that up somewhere? Not being a jackass, just want to read it!
I like to think of myself as an educated, rational fan. I've been against this deal because I think it's important to have a quality backup QB that the team believes in.
In the end, though, like any fan, I get goosebumps when I hear the potential for additional draft picks. So, I'm kinda on board with it now, even though I think it's questionable logic.
I guess if we can get a 3rd plus maybe a conditional mid-late round pick in 2010 (depending on his performance this season), we can make some good out of it. I'm all for getting McGee in the 5th round. What FA Qb do we go after to replace sage?
Honestly, I like Sage. I know he's a career backup, and he had a complete meltdown in the Indy game, but I'd hate to see him go. Shaub seems to get hurt a lot, and we don't have anyone here that already knows our system to step in (do we?) without a hickup. If we trade him, we'd better pickup someone fast, IMHO. I'm probably just over reacting, it could work out for the better. We bring in someone else who picks up the system fast, shines during his time given, and pushes Matt for the QB 1 spot. That would be a good scenario in my book.
We still need a veteran backup who will understand he'll be the #2. I also believe if we lose Sage, we'll go 4th to 5th round on our future backup...Pat White/Steven McGee?
Surely, surely if they are going to trade Sage then they have a backup plan... right?
I agree. We need a capable backup so I would only trade him for at least a 3rd round pick. White has looked great at the combine so far so I could see us taking him.
If we were to go after any FA QB to replace Sage I would want it to be Jeff Garcia, but from what I hear he still wants to be a starter.
I was for the trade last year (3rd rounder). Have Quinn Gray as your back up to lose those games Schaub missed. Now this season, I felt like Sage's value probably dropped too significantly to warrant a trade... that he'd probably have more value as our backup.
I love this time of year. Sage is great guy so I hope we can get something decent for him and he can be successful up in Minnesota!
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Glad Kubiak and Smith learned that Sage was not the answer as either a starter or back-up. I'll take a 4th for him, which I hope it is(or more).
That's all fine and dandy if we can get a 3rd rd pick or so..... but we've got no one as a backup behind Matt. Any ideas on a FA who would come here to back him up????? I certainly wouldn't put all my eggs in a basket on a draft choice for this year....
You could argue his value went down, but also Minnesota's need went up after they had to go with Gus Frerrote most of last season.
I'm thinking we get a 3rd in '09 and something between a 4th-7th in 2010 as a conditional pick based on how many starts he has.
