Who are a few current members of the Minnesota Vikings that could be traded to another team before the start of the 2023 regular season?

In a matter of days, the Minnesota Vikings will be putting the final touches on their 53-man roster for the upcoming 2023 NFL season.

Minnesota has one more preseason game on Saturday, and then they will have until Tuesday, August 29th, to trim their roster from 90 players down to 53.

There shouldn't be too many surprises when it comes to who ends up getting let go, but Vikings general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah might still have a few tricks up his sleeve before the team takes the field on September 10th for their regular-season opener.

Last year, Adofo-Mensah made multiple trades when it came time to build Minnesota's final roster for the 2022 campaign. The Vikings general manager wound up acquiring defensive lineman Ross Blacklock in a trade with the Houston Texans and wide receiver Jalen Reagor in a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles just days before the start of the 2022 regular season.

Minnesota also moved on from a player by way of a trade last year when they sent offensive lineman Jesse Davis over to the Pittsburgh Steelers right before the first game on their 2022 schedule.

Looking at the Vikings' current roster, who are a few players that the team could potentially trade before their regular-season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a few weeks?

There are some intriguing possibilities, so let's start with a veteran linebacker who might see his job given to a younger player on Minnesota's roster.
