Sage Rosenfels heading out of town?

February 23, 2009 9:14:04 PM PST
The Chronicle first reported that the Texans are close to making a deal to send backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels to the Minnesota Vikings, possibly for a fourth round draft choice and we've confirmed a deal is imminent. No one is officially commenting right now since the trade can't be made official until the end of the week when the league's new year begins. Rosenfels is going into the final year of his contract and this way, they'd be getting something for him. The Texans will likely sign a veteran free agent to back Schaub up.

We talked with Sage Monday afternoon. He was on a Houston golf course and didn't want to talk until it was a done deal.
