Report: Vikings were not in Trey Lance sweepstakes, invested in Jaren Hall

As the Trey Lance sweepstakes began to heat up, many believed the Minnesota Vikings would be a potential candidate for him. However, it seems like the Vikings were never truly involved.

Following the Vikings’ preseason finale, ESPN’s Kevin Seifert reported that the Vikings were “not in on the Trey Lance talks at all yesterday.”

Head coach Kevin O’Connell later spoke about rookie quarterback Jaren Hall after his up-and-down performance against the Arizona Cardinals.

“I would definitely like to keep him around…My philosophy when you’re going to draft a quarterback is you pour into him on a daily basis,” O’Connell said. “‘Development’ is a huge word, but I love the fact that we got him as many reps as we did this camp…I feel like Jaren has a really, really good understanding of our offense, where he can grow, where his comfort level can grow, and hopefully hit the ground running the next opportunity he gets…Might not show up stat-sheet wise but I thought it was a real positive day for Jaren.”

The San Francisco 49ers later traded Lance to the Dallas Cowboys a fourth-round selection.

While the Vikings could’ve matched that price, it seems that O’Connell and company are content with their quarterback room as currently constructed.
