NFL insiders keep linking Vikings to Trey Lance

The Minnesota Vikings were reported to have had discussions about a trade for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance back at the combine. With Lance having been beaten out for the 49ers QB2 job, those speculations are heating back up.

Once that was reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, there were multiple NFL insiders and analysts who linked Lance to the Vikings, including NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Is this real or just trying to link Lance to a team to continue driving the discussion and content? Right now, nothing the Vikings have done or said link Lance to the organization.

There were discussions at the combine, but that is something that happens about a lot of topics in Indianapolis. If they were to make a move for Lance, there is merit in the idea, but it’s not likely at this point.

Could these insiders know something and that’s why the conversation is being driven? We will find out, but don’t expect anything to happen right away.
