Multiple sources have confirmed that teams are showing interest in Minnesota Vikings cornerback Trae Waynes.
The 2015 first-round draft pick could be headed elsewhere before the NFL Draft in April. Minnesota picked up his fifth-year option for a guaranteed $9.069 million. The Vikings would likely get a couple draft picks for Waynes, such as a third and fifth round pick (me just spit balling). Who knows, Minnesota could be offered a 2nd round pick for him.
This could benefit both parties: It clears cap space for Minnesota to address needs elsewhere and could grab a couple picks out of the deal. The other team receives a reliable cornerback, while not having to give too much up.
The Michigan State alum started in 14 games last season and managed eight pass deflections, one interception and 44 combined tackles. Throughout his career he’s started in 39 games and recorded eight interceptions and deflected 34 passes.
The #Vikings have received calls from teams interested in trading for former first-round CB Trae Waynes, sources say. His fifth-year option just became fully guaranteed, so Minnesota won’t cut him. But there is interest.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2019
