Which players from the Minnesota Vikings could the Carolina Panthers possibly try and acquire in the trade market to boost their rebuild?

It has been a frenzied period of offseason activity for the Carolina Panthers in recent months. The organization has been gutted from top to bottom during the first year of their rebuild. But it is going to be must-watch regarding their fortunes in 2020.

New head coach Matt Rhule has come into the NFL at arguably its most uncertain time in recent memory. The Carolina Panthers are now finally back at training camp after a significantly disrupted preparation period. And how this unit comes together over the coming weeks should give us plenty of indication of just how well they are going to get on during a difficult-looking schedule.

The Panthers made some bold moves in a bid to make them a contender in the near future. Owner David Tepper has some lofty ambitions away from the field. But more will need to be done if Carolina wants a Super Bowl challenger by the time these proposals come to fruition.

Continuing our look at possible trade targets from every NFL team, we now turn our attention to the Minnesota Vikings. This is another organization that lost some key veterans over the spring. But there is still plenty of weapons at Mike Zimmer’s disposal as they look to go one better in the playoff next time around.

Their win at the New Orleans Saints in the 2019 wildcard round was quarterback Kirk Cousins’ crowning moment. The signal-caller might have fallen short against the San Francisco 49ers. But getting his first playoff win could give him a tremendous amount of confidence going forward.

The Vikings could be in a troublesome salary cap predicament if it is reduced to $175 million in 2021. And here are three players that might be on the Panthers’ radar.
