A $34 million trade proposal lands the Vikings a quarterback.

With the signing of Danielle Hunter to a new one-year contract, the new Minnesota Vikings regime's "competitive rebuild" became a lot more competitive for the 2023 season.

However, in his two offseasons as general manager, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has yet to sign a similar long-term agreement with any Vikings player.

This is shown in Kirk Cousins, who won 13 games for the Vikings after signing a one-year contract deal in 2022 but did not receive a long-term agreement this offseason.

Adofo-Mensah is guiding the Vikings through a roster overhaul, eliminating aging veteran players while remaining in contention for the playoffs.

However, a quarterback replacement for Cousins, whose contract expires after the 2023 season, 

will determine if Minnesota stays in the middle or makes a major drive in the post-Cousins era.

On July 29, Bleacher Report's Alex Ballantine recommended that the Vikings address the matter of who would be the next quarterback by acquiring San Francisco 49ers

dual-threat quarterback Trey Lance in exchange for third and fourth-round draft picks.
