The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have added Minnesota Vikings quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to their negotiation list.With the Vikings signing Brett Favre, Jackson has gone from battling Sage Rosenfels for the No. 1 job to likely being the odd man out in Minnesota.
CFL teams are supposed to keep their neg lists confidential, but they're often leaked to media. Bombers coach Mike Kelly had this to say about the club adding Jackson to their neg list:
"When I was with the Philadelphia Eagles, I was basically Brad Childress's step and fetch boy. So I know this player has been trained properly."
Jackson has played three seasons with the Vikings, seeing action in 25 games, and last year threw for 1,056 yards with nine TDs and two interceptions.
