Commanders Taking Trade Calls at No. 2 in Case Vikings Offer Herschel Walker 2.0 Package

The Minnesota Vikings are trying to trade up into the top-5 of the NFL Draft to grab their quarterback of the future. One report from Saturday morning has their target as Michigan QB, JJ McCarthy. How high will they have to go to get JJ, or one of the other quarterbacks they covet at the top of the draft?

Caleb Williams is a reported lock to go No. 1 overall to the Chicago Bears. After they traded away Justin Fields for pennies on the dollar, they aren’t moving off that pick. But could the Vikings get as high as No. 2, which currently belongs to the Washington Commanders, if general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah really wanted to make sure that head coach Kevin O’Connell gets the QB prospect he wants most, outside of Williams?

Well, Commanders head coach Dan Quinn talked to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero (one of us) and told him that Washington general manager Adam Peters has indeed been taking calls on the No. 2 overall pick, but that he’s yet to receive an offer enticing enough to essentially trade away their own QB of the future.

“Yes, I would say [the phone is] ringing, and because, like you said, of the talent of the [QB] group this year,” Quinn said. “And so I would anticipate [Adam Peters] fielding these calls as it goes through…”

“A lot of times [the answer is] no, like ‘Thanks for calling’ but it is part of the process, and you have to do your due diligence to listen and to find out just to make sure, like is there something that you just couldn’t refuse.

Quinn notes that, when you are picking in the top-5, especially during a talented QB draft like this one, it’s your duty to listen to the many trade offers you are likely to get. Why? Because you might receive one that is just too good to refuse. Then, Dan referenced the infamous Herschel Walker trade.
