It appears that the Vikings have let the NFL trade deadline come and go without making a deal. This news should come as a surprise to no one after the Vikings made a splash two weeks ago bringing back someone by the name of Randy Moss. Checking other teams in the league, today was about as amusing as watching ice melt.
A couple of weeks ago the only player I felt had a punchers chance of being moved was Tyrell Johnson. Johnson was last years starting strong safety and has fallen to third string slash occasionally being inactive status. Maybe some team dangles a late round pick and Vikes wish him the best of luck on a change of scenery. However, with Hussain Abdullah’s status (concussion) uncertain against Green Bay, Johnson is likely to see time this weekend for added depth in secondary.
