The Las Vegas Raiders are trading quarterback Nick Mullens to the Minnesota Vikings for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2024, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The Raiders signed Mullens to a one-year deal in free agency in April. The draft pick comes to fruition if Mullens is active for one game with the Vikings, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Mullens, 27, had been competing with Jarrett Stidham for the backup job behind starter Derek Carr.

Mullens is 5-12 as an NFL starter, completing 64.6 percent of his passes for 4,861 yards, 26 touchdowns and 22 interceptions with the San Francisco 49ers (2018-20) and Cleveland Browns.

In Minnesota, Mullens faces a battle with Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond for the chance to back up veteran Kirk Cousins.
