BREAKING NEWS: Minnesota Vikings Have Offload 8 Players To Sign quarterback From…

The question now seems to be not whether the Vikings should choose Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy 11th overall, but rather how high they’ll have to go to acquire him if he’s their guy. McCarthy’s value has obviously increased sufficiently over the last month or so.

After almost a month, Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy’s value seems to have increased to the point where the issue for the Vikings isn’t whether or not to draft him 11th overall, but rather how high they’ll have to go to acquire him if he’s their guy.

The Falcons are presently in the quarterback market at No. 8, but if they sign Kirk Cousins next week, that may change. The Broncos and Raiders, who are ranked 12 and 13, are the next best teams to watch if they decide to try to move up for McCarthy. However, the Giants at No. 6 could be the club to watch here.

Yes, Daniel Jones has a three-year, high-priced contract with the Giants. However, Jones had an injury last year after having a breakout 2022 season, despite playing in six games with a passing rating of 70.5, three touchdowns, and seven turnovers. Now could be the time to seek for a new quarterback since New York can get out of that agreement without having to pay a huge amount of dead money the following year. Injuries and Jones’ ceiling are serious issues in New York.

Connor Hughes of SNY said this week, “There were a lot of rumors at the combine linking J.J. McCarthy to the Giants.” “It became very clear in Indianapolis that (GM Joe) Schoen is ready to draft his guy — either at No. 6, or by trading up.”

In that scenario, the Vikings could need to move up to the No. 5 spot in order to acquire McCarthy if they think he’s their guy. Justin Herbert is the starting quarterback for the fifth-picking Chargers. Could they be talked out of selecting Joe Alt or Malik Nabers in favor of a trade down to number 11, where they will still have an abundance of excellent alternatives, in a draft full with offensive studs.

Starting with a Day 3 pick and a second-round pick, the Vikings’ offer is likely to be accepted. The Chargers will undoubtedly be searching for a future first-round pick and may be able to leverage numerous offers. It would be fascinating to witness those talks.

Yes, Minnesota could be content to get Bo Nix or Michael Penix Jr. However, Kevin O’Connell and Kwesi Adofo-Mensah could have to pass on the Giants and pay the Chargers’ price in order to acquire McCarthy.
