Vikings claim QB Rosenfels off waivers

Rosenfels was brought in by Vikings vice president Rick Spielman in 2009. But he never played, stuck behind Tarvaris Jackson and then Brett Favre on the depth chart. He spent last season with the Giants.
The Vikings granted McNabb's request to be released on Thursday, leaving them with only two quarterbacks on the roster. So Spielman elected to grab a known quantity to give them an extra body for the final five games of the season.
