The rumor mill has been heating up with trade talk between the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins for quarterback Donovan McNabb. If the trade takes place, it won't be the first time the Vikings have started an NFL season knowing that their quarterback might be an older, veteran player - on the contrary, this seems to be "par for the course" for the Vikings. Here is a list of the veteran quarterbacks that the Vikings have started since the 1980's:
1987-1990: Tommy Kramer (started 15 games, was drafted in 1977) and Wade Wilson (started 29 games, was drafted in 1981)
1990-1991: Wade Wilson (started 9 games)
1999: Randall Cunningham and Jeff George (Cunningham started 6 games, George started 10 games and was drafted in 1990)
2009 - 2010: Brett Favre (started 29 games, was drafted in 1991)
