Who are a few teams from around the NFL that could fly under the radar and make a trade for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins?
When it comes to trying to figure out which NFL teams might make an attempt to trade for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins this year, most typically think of the obvious choices.
These teams are the ones that seem like they’re desperate for any sort of quarterback upgrade like the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, or Indianapolis Colts. Then there are the teams that have a connection to someone who is currently employed by the Vikings like the Cleveland Browns or San Francisco 49ers.
But sometimes the final landing spot for a player isn’t always the one that seems the most obvious. How many people really thought the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were a realistic option for Tom Brady or that J.J. Watt would sign with the Arizona Cardinals?
So if Minnesota actually does end up trading Cousins this offseason, it could be to an NFL team that no one had on their radar. Who are a few of these dark horse teams that could potentially make a deal with the Vikings this year for the veteran quarterback?
