NEW YORK – The New York Giants have acquired quarterback Sage Rosenfels from the Minnesota Vikings for an undisclosed draft pick.
A person within the league who is familiar with the trade confirmed the Giants have dealt for Rosenfels to back up Eli Manning. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not officially been announced.
The Giants lost backup Jim Sorgi with a shoulder injury and he was placed on injured reserve. Rosenfels was third string behind Brett Favre and Tarvaris Jackson in Minnesota.
Rosenfels is entering his 10th NFL season as a backup quarterback.
