Heading into the 2020 NFL season, there were a decent amount of people who thought the Minnesota Vikings would not only win the NFL North but that they would contend for a Super Bowl.
I was not one of those people, but to say I believed the Vikings would start of the 2020 season with a 1-5 record would be dishonest.
On Thursday, the Vikings made a trade which pretty much signifies that they have thrown in the towel on the season.
According to Adam Schefter, the Vikings have traded DE Yannick Ngakoue (who they just traded for in the offseason) to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 conditional fifth-round pick.
As noted by Schefter, the Vikings originally gave up a 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 conditional fifth-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for Ngakoue.
