He will get a paycheck at the back door so he can live. But also he could be picked up by another team. Good luck.
Now TJ pack too.

Let us hope that Wright is Mr Right for the job and backup for Winfield.....Childress will most likely throw him to the wolves, right off the bat....

You'd rather have Booty over Jackson?!?

Booty sucked against 3rd stringers in the preseason. Jackson has won some regular season games.

When Booty was drafted, Kiper and Clayton both said in their analysis that JDB "was not a future NFL starter, but a possible decent career backup."

Sorry your savior has been released again because he can only hold a clip board!

Go Packers!

I agree with part of your post. Amazing, isn't it, if you don't like a person of color for whatever reason, you are labeled "racist" right away.
I disagree with your take on Jackson however, still think the kid has talent, and obviously character, to be sticking around despite being very much overshadowed by Farve. He looks happy on the sideline no? I bet, if Farve goes down, he will surprise folks with his ability. Maybe Chilly, that great talent scout (really) has a diamond in the rough. Gonna hear about this one...

Big Deal. Booty is #4 on the depth chart anyway and he is a work in progress. The story said it all. They need some uninjured fresh bodies in the defensive backfield. And that is why he was released again. And then when the Vikes sort out their defensive backfield situation, he will be brought back.
In the mean time they had better tighten up the pass defense against the next two opposing QB's. Both with very high passer ratings.

vikings are making a mistake! Jackson is the player that needs to be released as far back as pre-season. He is not worth the price being paid. We have all seen that he cannot get this team anywhere and he has had plenty time to prove it in the past. Booty never had that chance. Very unfair and bad business moves.
