"I feel like we have an opportunity here that I don't want to let pass by," Childress said on Wednesday. "I'm just not seeing right now the aggressiveness from Tarvaris that I saw throughout the offseason, training camp, the two preseason games he played in."
Frerotte, who played for the Vikings in 2003 and 2004, is back for his second stint with the team after a couple of seasons with the Rams and one with the Dolphins. Last season, Frerotte played in 8 games, passing for 1,104 yards, 7 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He replaces Tarvaris Jackson, who has started two games this season, passing for 308 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
"We have a chance to have a successful season and I think so we don't let things potentially slip away, what we're doing is I'm going to make a change at quarterback," said Childress.
