Vikings potential trade target No. 3

Jerry Jeudy, WR - Denver Broncos

Steve Smith may think Jerry Jeudy is "just a guy" but the 24-year-old wide receiver has made some good plays for the Denver Broncos since arriving as a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and could have some value.

Depending on whether or not an extension for K.J. Osborn is in the plans for the Minnesota Vikings, it might be worth exploring bringing in another talented pass catcher to team up with Justin Jefferson and the emerging Jordan Addison.

It's hard to know what kind of market Osborn or Jeudy would have in free agency, so securing the rights to one of them before the end of the season and working out an extension could be a wise move for Minnesota's front office.

Since the Minnesota Vikings seem to want to be a pass-heavy team and are likely to have a new quarterback in 2024, having as many weapons as possible for the new passer would go a long way toward a successful competitive rebuild.
