With the eyes of the National Football League focused on the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, rumors are rife. One, from Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports, will be of particular interest to fans of the Minnesota Vikings.
(A brief comment on the other players available before the league year. League sources said the Vikings are a commercial center Tracked Waynesthe Bears race with runner Jordan Howard, the Chiefs discuss trade with Justin Houston and the Eagles are ready to move Nelson Agholor).
In accordance with the speculations we have heard in recent weeks, it seems that the Vikings. . at least according to LaCanfora. . . we plan to potentially trade cornerback Trae Waynes before the start of the new season on March 13th.
The Vikings are quite deep at the half corner position, and as the price tag for Xavier Rhodes is likely to scare away potential trading partners, it seems that Waynes may well become the extra-ordinary.
Waynes, the 11th pick in the 2015 NFL draw in the state of Michigan, is now entering the option season for the fifth year of his rookie contract. The deal is expected to bring in just over $ 9 million and will be fully guaranteed if it is part of the lineup on the first day of the season.
While the Vikings are looking for ways to create a cape space for themselves, it might seem wise to remove $ 9 million from the cap for a draft pick (or even a cheaper player). Of course, as we saw last season with the constant pinch of death that Rhodes had, we can never have too much depth at the corner, but it seems that the Vikings would be comfortable with Mike Hughes , Mackensie Alexander and Holton Hill. the rest of their cornerback depth map.
We have about two weeks left until the start of the new league year. . And, therefore, I'm sure we'll continue to hear more things like that.
