Who are a few of the players from around the NFL that the Minnesota Vikings should look into seeing if they could acquire via trade this offseason?
As much as adding talented players through free agency and the draft is vital for the Minnesota Vikings each offseason, recently the team has also dipped its foot into the trade market.
Since Mike Zimmer became the Vikings’ head coach in 2014, the team has acquired a total of seven players via trade including Sam Bradford, Mike Wallace, Nick Easton, and Brett Jones. Minnesota has made a handful of trades on draft day as well to fulfill general manager Rick Spielman’s need for extra picks each and every year.
Obviously, not all of Spielman’s deals have turned out with great results. But the Vikings general manager has proven that he’s not afraid to pull the trigger on a trade when necessary.
With not a ton of salary cap space this offseason (around $11 million), this might be a good time for Spielman and Minnesota to get creative with some trades. Especially when there are a number of talented, young players who are also conveniently very affordable.
Who are a few of these players from around the NFL that the Vikings should attempt to trade for this offseason to help improve their chance for success in 2019?
