The Vikings have until 3 p.m. CT today to make a trade for a quarterback. Will they go the seismic route and mortgage the future for Kyler Murray or another QB? Based on the reporting from insiders around the NFL, that's highly unlikely and the most likely outcome is Minnesota sticking with their current twosome of Jaren Hall and Nick Mullens, who is on IR for one more week before he's eligible to return. 

Let's go around the league to see what the insiders are saying... 

Adam Schefter, ESPN

Schefter, during the Monday night game between the Lions and Raiders, said he doesn't think the Vikings will make a move for a quarterback before the 3 p.m. CT deadline. He also said the Vikings are unlikely to trade edge rusher Danielle Hunter. 

Dianna Russini, The Athletic

No significant conversations about a trade but discussions about “other scenarios” were ongoing.

Ben Goessling, Star Tribune

If the Vikings add QB depth in free agency, the name that most commonly pops up is Colt McCoy, who worked out for the Vikings earlier this year. 

Benjamin Allbright, KOA Denver

More of the same from Allbright, who covers the Broncos but is a familiar name in national rumors.

Ryan Clark, ESPN

Clark praised Cousins and said it’s going to be “extremely difficult” for the Vikings to replace him as a leader and a player.
