The Minnesota Vikings made four deals in a week and a half, welcoming Nick Mullens (QB) of the Las Vegas Raiders, Ross Blacklock (DT) of the Houston Texans, and Galen Regor (WR) of the Philadelphia Eagles While sending Jesse Davis (OT) to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah is likely to have “finished” via part-time deals with the NFL regular season four days away. But one name remains as a candidate if Adofo-Mensah makes another move – Alexander Mattison (RB).

Mattison’s trade theories spread a week ago when reports suggested the Vikings were “listening to trade shows but not actively shopping” for the 24-year-old who was jogging.

And on Wednesday Ovarian Report I published an article Detailed “large trade block board”. Mathison wiggled on the easel as a honorary With Jordan Love (QB, GB), Mason Rudolph (QB, PIT), D’Ernest Johnson (RB, CLE).

Apparently 1/3 of the NFL Wants Alexander Mattison

The prospect of the Vikings dealing with Mathieson elsewhere now – with the regular season four days away – is slim because they may have done so by now. Additionally, Minnesota allegedly wanted a third- or fourth-round draft pick in return, matching the final compensatory selection to be received when Mattison departs on free agency in 2023.

In the 2022 edition of the NFL, silly teams would only hand out a third- or fourth-tier player in exchange for an RB2. The Los Angeles Rams gave the New England Patriots a fourth-tier and sixth-tier division one for Sonny Michel as their regular season kicked off last year, but such a move was exceptional. Also, Michel no longer plays with rams.
