Report: Seahawks, Vikings, Colts to be ‘players’ before NFL trade deadline

Kelley L. Cox, USA Today Sports

With the rash of injuries along the offensive line across the NFL, top-tier offensive linemen have become a hot commodity as of late. As a result, multiple teams are on the hunt for a starting-quality lineman as the NFL trade deadline approaches, per Jason Cole of Bleacher Report.

Three teams, all with franchise quarterbacks as well as major question marks on the offensive line, are rumored to be in the market.

The Vikings, Seahawks, and Colts are the teams rumored to be active.

It’s unclear if any of the three are willing to part with the draft picks necessary to facilitate a trade. But offensive tackles Joe Thomas of the Cleveland Browns and Joe Staley of the San Francisco 49ers are potential trade targets who could seriously bolster these teams’ offensive lines.

Per Cole, all three teams are expected to make a move before the Tuesday deadline.

We have already looked at two potential trades involving the Vikings and the Seahawks, which you can read more about here. While the NFL trade deadline isn’t usually overly active, tremendous need oftentimes prompts action.

It’s going to be fascinating to see if any top teams pull the trigger on a blockbuster deal.
