Have the Minnesota Vikings made another trade to try and upgrade the team's offensive line?

Trade rumors about a potential Vikings trade began circulating after comments made by Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll during a press conference Wednesday.

Sam Bradford was pressured on 90 percent of his drop backs last Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, so the need to improve an injury-decimated offensive line has been obvious.

According to the blog Sportingsota, multiple offensive tackles have been reported to be on the trade block – most notably Browns left tackle Joe Thomas and 49ers tackle Joe Staley.

There has been no announcement from the Vikings yet, but stay tuned.
