The Chicago Bears offer a tempting package including Kyle Fuller
While the previous two trades included multiple first rounders, this one does not. However, it does include a player which could significantly help the Vikings.
Minnesota has struggled at cornerback as of late, and some of it has to do with injuries while some also happens to be because of the turnover at the position last year. Netting a solidified Pro Bowl starter in Kyle Fuller would help shore up the position. Fuller would also be a great guy to have around the younger players in the cornerback room.
In this deal, the Vikings get the no. 20 pick in this year’s draft while also getting a third from the Bears in next year’s draft. This allows Chicago to keep their second and third rounders for this year, which would help them shore up the cornerback void left by Fuller as well as (hopefully) an offensive tackle.
The Vikings’ defense was certainly one of the biggest problems for them in 2020. Offensively, they could score points. Defensively, there were some inconsistencies. With Fuller on board, they’re instantly a better unit.
From there, it’s onto another deal including both the Vikings’ firsts to move up and get themselves a rookie quarterback to take the reins.
