With the Minnesota Vikings staring 0-2, there are plenty of people who think tanking the 2023 season should be an option. With a tank comes possible trade option and Fan Duel’s Twitter account has proposed a wild one, sending superstar wide receiver Justin Jefferson to the New England Patriots.
The Vikings are 0-2 and might need to hit the reset button 😬

Yes, you read that correctly. Jefferson to the Patriots was a real trade proposal.
Trading Jefferson, however, wouldn’t be just a move to tank the season. It would be a signal that the Vikings are going to be going into a full rebuild. That is something that general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has explicitly talked about not wanting to do because it’s not conducive in trying to win football games.
The Vikings might end up making some trades, but don’t expect Jefferson to be one of them.
