Vikings Do Nothing at Trade Deadline

The Minnesota Vikings have officially done nothing at the 2020 NFL Trade Deadline. This day is usually much quieter in the NFL than it is throughout other professional sports leagues in the United States but today was eerily silent.

For Minnesota, even guys like Riley Reiff and Kyle Rudolph, who were all but traded just days ago, will apparently play the rest of 2020 in purple and gold.

For those who were still holding out hopes of a Vikings tank or rebuild (like me)… it’s time to move on. Minnesota shouldn’t be 2-5 and certainly won’t continue losing at that rate, given our future schedule and continually maturing youth.

The Vikings are scheduled to play at home against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at noon. A win will bring a sense of dangerous hope to this fanbase… while a loss is sure to conjure up questions about lack of movement during today’s deadline.
