Which current Minnesota Vikings players could potentially be on the move before this year’s trade deadline on November 1st?

Prior to the start of the 2022 regular season, the new regime for the Minnesota Vikings revealed the team is currently going through a “competitive rebuild.” They didn’t want to tear everything down and start from scratch, but they know that the Vikings roster could still use some improvements as the team heads into the future.

Heading into Week 4, it’s very clear that Minnesota is trying to remain competitive. The Vikings are 2-1, and there appear to be no signs of the team setting itself up for failure in order to land a better draft pick in 2023 or anything like that.

Still, there are ways Minnesota can improve their future this season, and one possible path they can take to try and accomplish this would be to unload some players before this year’s trade deadline.

Most of the Vikings’ roster was not built by the team’s new regime. So there are a number of Minnesota’s players that the new people in charge really have no attachment to.

So if the Vikings were going to consider trading any current members of their roster before this season’s deadline on November 1st, who are some of the players that could end up being dealt?
