The Vikings are in the enterprise of striving to obvious some cap area.
There are cap casualty possibilities. A single could be by means of trade. Per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports activities, the Vikings are actively procuring cornerback Trae Waynes at the NFL Mix.
It helps make sense. Waynes is a solid cornerback, but he’s owing $9 million next time and the Vikings have other solid parts at cornerback: Xavier Rhodes, Mike Hughes, Holton Hill and Mackensie Alexander. The emergence in 2018 of Hill, an undrafted totally free agent, most likely helps make basic supervisor Rick Spielman sense relaxed about trading Waynes.
In 2020, Waynes will develop into a totally free agent. The No. 11 general choose in 2015 just wrapped up his fourth time in the league. Per Pro Soccer Target, Waynes experienced a participant quality of 69.1, a mark that rated 49th in the NFL. Most likely not worth what the Vikings are paying out him.
The concern is, what can they get for him? It depends what a further staff views Waynes as. Is he a a person-12 months rental, or a participant the staff intends to indication to a very long-term offer?
A third or fourth-round choose looks about appropriate. We’ll update you on any additional rumblings.
