The Minnesota Vikings may want to trade for a talented player or two before the NFL trade deadline to bolster their roster.

October 31 is rapidly approaching. That is the final day that NFL teams like the Minnesota Vikings can trade players during the 2023 season. The biggest question is whether or not the team will take advantage of a trade before then.

The media has talked a lot about players the Vikings should trade away. Names like Kirk Cousins, Danielle Hunter, Ezra Cleveland, Harrison Smith, and K.J. Osborn have all been mentioned at individuals who could be shipped out of Minnesota.

However, with the Vikings big win on Monday Night Football, the team is more likely to be buyers than sellers since they aren't the team that some fans think would only win a handful of games over the course of the season.

Let's take a look at five players who are rumored to be on the trade block that the Minnesota Vikings could express some interest in acquiring before the NFL trade deadline passes for the 2023 season at the end of October.
