Vikings and Texans in Trade Talks. . .Is It Thyme for Sage?

Yeah, I know I've used that joke before.  I also don't care.

Access Vikings is reporting that the Vikings and Texans are close to a deal that would see the Vikings sending their fourth-round selection (#118 overall) in this year's draft to the Houston Texans in exchange for quarterback Sage Rosenfels.

You'll recall that the Vikings attempted to acquire Rosenfels from the Texans prior to training camp this year as well.  The Vikings were offering a third-rounder, while the Texans wanted a second.  Hence, no deal got done.

I've been on the road all day, so this is the first I'm seeing about this.  It sounds semi-reasonable from my perspective, but I'm going to have to take a little time to digest this.  Hopefully I'll be back with more later on tonight, and if I'm not, I'll be back tomorrow with a take on how this affects the Beloved Purple.
