Which Minnesota Vikings players should be off-limits to trade before this year’s deadline?

With only one win after their first six games, most have assumed the Minnesota Vikings are looking to unload a number of players from their current roster before this season’s trade deadline.

There have been a number of Vikings players in the rumor mill recently including Kyle Rudolph, Anthony Harris, Harrison Smith, Riley Reiff, and Adam Thielen, but no deals have been made yet. There are still a few days before the deadline, so there’s plenty of time left for Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman to get his trade on.

While it sounds like the Vikings are pretty willing to unload just about anyone on their current roster, there are a few players that should be off-limits to include in a trade before this year’s deadline.

Excluded from this list will be Minnesota’s rookies. It’s rare for a team to trade a rookie during the middle of a season and it seems highly unlikely that the Vikings would be willing to do something like this.

So outside of the guy who plays under center for Minnesota with a contract that makes him almost impossible to trade, who are some of the Vikings players that should not be available to acquire before this season’s deadline?
