Week 6 is upon us and there are plenty of games to watch and to check out future Vikings players. What positions you watch is entirely your choice but many will be watching the QBs and offensive line (yet again).

Here are the games that should be interesting. I probably can only watch a few.

As usual I will do a mock because it is what I do.

I think the majority sentiment is that Cousins has to go. But with a no trade clause and only one year on his deal left, what team would give up anything of value? There is only one GM dumb enough to give up a 1st and a 4th for a has been, never was, and never will be QB. No need to name names.

Let’s say that Tampa does not want to extend Winston and that they are interested in Cousins and even willing to extend him.

Maybe Cousins will approve a trade if he knows that the Vikings will draft someone and that player will start ASAP.

What kind of package could the Vikings expect in return for basically having the Bucs take Cousins off their hands?

Would the Vikings have to actually trade Cousins AND a pick to Tampa and get nothing in return? Would they do that?

I think it is possible that Arians would be interested in Cousins. The other option is to draft someone and the hope that player is good enough.

Maybe they can do both?

The Vikings would be in a bad position leverage wise IMO especially if they called the Bucs.

I think trading Cousins to the Bucs for the right to swap 1st round picks (if their pick is higher) and get back a conditional 2021 3rd round pick (it could become a 2nd if Cousins plays X number of games or they extend him) might be the best they can do.

The worst would be to trade Cousins and a 3rd round pick to the Bucs just to get him off the books.

But it all depends on Cousins approving a trade. But as I explained above, I do not think he would want to sit the bench.

I am not going to include that here because that belongs in an off season plan. But I think it might be doable.

Why 3 receivers? Well, all we have is Bisi Johnson and Chad Beebe. I do not expect Treadwell to back next year. I do not know if Beebe can stay healthy. They may decide to make a trade to save some money and since the offense is run centric.

I am guessing that Wirfs or Niang can play guard in the NFL. If they worked out they would be good on one side or the other.

The 3rd round may be too late for Hurts and he may not be the choice of many but he may work well in a run centric offense.

Here is an alternative mock ...

Well, engoy the games this weekend.
