Two of the teams involved in talks with the Eagles are the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons. The Eagles are hoping to get at least a sixth-round pick in return for Holcomb, but they may have to settle for a seventh-round selection.

That doesn't make him popular. He still isn't in the top 20 best qb list or w/e

He has been traded to the Vikings

Man, the Falcons really dropped the ball on that one. They really needed a veteran QB there to backup Harrington. Who else is out there for them now?

And the Eagles should be thrilled as they basically got a free draft pick for a guy they were going to drop anyway.

Pretty good trade, which will helps both teams. The Vikings needed a veteran QB behind Tarvaris Jackson, and we needed to unload Kelly Holcomb (a QB that the Bills basically give us, in the Spikes trade), before the start of the season.
I am glad we got a 6th round pick for him, a lot of team seemed to be interested in himů Confused

Maybe it has something to do with a 34 year old being a bum his entire career?

5400 yards, 37tds and 37ints are nothing to write home to mom about in 11 years.

Are the Vikings in need of a starter that bad or did they trade for a backup?!?! Should have contacted the Titans for Rattay, younger or Collins, more experienced Laughing

I'm happy we traded him, I'll settle for a 6th, but I'd rather have a 5th. Sad

Yeah. He will be a decent backup though. Just don't expect many long passes. He's an expert at throwing 4 yd passes when its 4th and 8..........

Yes, he's being acquired solely as a veteran backup. If we're lucky, he'll never see the field. However, I feel a lot more confident with him backing up Tarvaris than Bollinger.

I think this is a good pickup for the Vikings. They need a vet backup for Jackson and Holcomb fits that perfectly. I don't know how he will do with the Vikings but in his limited playing time with the eagles he led them on a scoring drive against Baltimore which none of our other QB's did.
