Childress Doesn’t Rule Out Bringing QB Booty Back

The Vikings on Wednesday terminated the practice squad contract of QB John David Booty and used the free spot on T Clint Oldenburg, a 6-5, 305-pound linemen out of Colorado State who was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2007 and was most recently with the Denver Broncos.

Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said Booty wasn’t getting many reps during practice, but he also said he would not rule out the possibility of bringing the 2008 5th round pick back at some point.

“The fact is we needed another offensive lineman to practice and wanted to take a look at Clint,” Childress said Wednesday. “He had (practice squad) eligibility. I’m not going to rule out bringing him (Booty) back, but we do what we need to do to make it through week-by-week.”
