Vikings Get Holcomb From Eagles to Back Up T. Jackson

The Minnesota Vikings added a veteran backup quarterback to go with young starter Tarvaris Jackson by trading a sixth-round draft choice in 2009 to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday for Kelly Holcomb.

The Eagles obtained Holcomb in an offseason trade with the Buffalo Bills but have A.J. Feeley and rookie Kevin Kolb behind starter Donovan McNabb.

In Minnesota, Holcomb is to compete with Brooks Bollinger for the No. 2 spot behind Jackson.
