Vikings acquire QB Holcomb from Eagles

Kelly Holcomb, QB

Minnesota Vikings

Career Statistics

Yards: 5,403

TD/INT: 37/37

Rating: 79.9

NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Vikings have acquired quarterback Kelly Holcomb from the Philadephia Eagles in exchange for a sixth round pick in 2009.

The veteran backup quarterback joined the Eagles this year but saw very limited action in the preseason as the team was crowded at the position with A.J. Feely and second-round pick Kevin Kolb backing up Donovan McNabb.

The Vikings wanted a veteran back up for Tavarias Jackson as Brooks Bollinger has been disappointing in the preseaon with a 30.4 passer rating.

Holcomb spent the 2006 season in Buffalo, but did not appear in any games. In 2005, he started eight games for the Bills and passed for 1,509 yards and 10 touchdowns.

3 way battle now in Minnesota as this trade of Holcomb to the Vikings has been expected for weeks. If Jackson struggles early, do not be surprised to see him yanked in favor of Holcomb, who I have personally always really liked.
