The Minnesota Vikings are another team that could be selling at this year's trade deadline. While Kirk Cousins' name has been a hot one among trade rumors, most believe he isn't going anywhere and will instead ride out the 2023 season in Minnesota. But, the Vikings do have some other names they could try and get rid of before the deadline.

One of those guys is longtime Viking defensive end Danielle Hunter. Having been a three-time Pro Bowler and off to a ridiculously hot start this season, Hunter could be a highly sought-after player by several teams. This year, Hunter already has 8.0 sacks, which leads the league as we speak.

Hunter is in the last year of his deal, as well, which makes things interesting. If the Raiders were to trade for him, they'd likely have to part with something like a third or fourth-round pick. Would they feel confident in their ability to get an extension done? That's the big question. If they could, Hunter and Crosby would be a wrecking crew for the foreseeable future.
