The Minnesota Vikings and Las Vegas Raiders are both in a precarious spot three weeks into the 2023 NFL season. The Vikings went 11-0 last year in one-possession games, however, this year they’re off to an 0-3 start. All three losses have been one-possession finishes.
There have been many fans speculating that the Vikings could be a candidate for a massive trade by the deadline this year if they don’t appear to be competitive. That is where the Raiders could possibly come in.
The Minnesota Vikings Trade Kirk Cousins To The Las Vegas Raiders In Massive Trade Proposal
Mark Powell of Fansided proposed this scenario:
If Sunday night proved anything, it’s that the Raiders as currently constructed will not be winning much of anything this season. Jimmy Garoppolo is a fine quarterback, but he is not built to spread the ball around to this many weapons.
Josh Jacobs, Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, Hunter Renfrow and more deserve someone like Cousins. While he’s not necessarily a top-tier QB himself, Cousins is better than Garoppolo ever has been, and has experience dealing with elite wideouts like Justin Jefferson and (at one time) Adam Thielen.
Josh McDaniels is on the hot seat and may be fired by the end of the season if Vegas doesn’t turn things around. It could be in his best interest to convince the front office to trade for Cousins, even if it’ll cost some draft capital. Frankly, those picks don’t matter to McDaniels if he’s not around beyond 2023 anyway.
Kirk Cousins is set to be a free agent following the 2023 NFL season. While the Vikings trading away Cousins seemed like a crazy idea about a month ago, if the Vikings’ struggles continue this year and they have no intention of re-signing him, getting something for him instead of letting him walk in free agency could be best case scenario.
As the trade deadline approaches, Kirk Cousins is a quiet name to watch as a potential suitor for a competitive team.
