Justin Fields was interested in being traded to Vikings

ESPN’s Brooke Pryor gave an inside look into a rapid and remarkable transformation of the quarterback room for the Pittsburgh Steelers in her exclusive coverage of the NFL Owners’ Meetings.

Inside the report was a detailed look at how the Steelers could pivot from 2023 first-round pick Kenny Pickett to a room with former Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson and former Chicago Bear Justin Fields.

In the article, Pryor revealed Fields’ four targeted destinations before free agency started. Alongside the Steelers, Atlanta Falcons and Las Vegas Raiders, Pryor listed the Minnesota Vikings as a desired location for Fields.

Leaving out that the Bears were probably not interested in seeing Fields twice a year in purple and gold, the Vikings continue to be one of the preferable destinations for quarterbacks.

Top quarterback prospects Jayden Daniels and J.J. McCarthy have both had nothing but praise for the Vikings brass and their vision for the next franchise signal-caller.

Minnesota has a great situation to help foster the development of a young quarterback from a deadly arsenal of weapons to a staff ready-made to get the most out of a quarterback. Fields’ desire to possibly don the purple and gold is just another example of that.
