Could The Minnesota Vikings Trade For Former First-Round Pick

The Minnesota Vikings are entering a new era under new quarterback J.J. McCarthy. After longtime starter Kirk Cousins departed in free agency and the team selected McCarthy tenth overall in the 2024 NFL Draft, it will be exciting to see how the Vikings look in the upcoming NFL season.

One of the best ways to help a rookie quarterback develop is by giving him weapons. With one of the league's best wide receivers in Justin Jefferson already on the team and another star receiver in Jordan Addison, McCarthy is walking into one of the best offenses that most rookies will be a part of. But could the Minnesota Vikings look into adding another talented piece to an already stacked offense?

Bleacher Report Suggests Minnesota Vikings Trade With Tennessee Titans For Wide Receiver Treylon Burks

In the article, "5 Trades NFL Teams Should Consider To Bolster Offense Around Rookie QBs" the author Alex Kay suggests that Minnesota should flip a seventh-round pick over to Tennessee in exchange for wide receiver Treylon Burks.

The former 2022 first-round pick was selected 18th overall by the Tennessee Titans. Drafted to replace superstar wide receiver A.J. Brown, Burks has not lived up to the hype since being taken out of Arkansas after a career year in his final season of college.

After a promising rookie season, Burks only caught 16 receptions for 221 yards in 2023 after falling down the depth chart. While some fans think the team should give him another season, it could probably help both sides to start fresh.

The Titans have felt the effects of losing A.J. Brown and trading his replacement for a seventh-round pick seems like a massive disappointment. It is important to note that Tennessee general manager Ran Carthon did not draft Burks, so he may opt to trade him.
