According to FOX Sports, the Minnesota Vikings have re-signed quarterback Sage Rosenfels. The financial terms of the agreement were not available at the time of publication.

Rosenfels came to the Vikings via waivers last season. When the team released Donovan McNabb, the franchise needed another quarterback.
