Multiple reports say the Vikings are finalizing a trade with the Broncos for quarterback Trevor Siemian and a 2018 late-round draft pick. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Minnesota will give up a 2019 draft pick in return. 

Siemian would hypothetically be the backup to Kirk Cousins, who's expected to arrive in Minnesota today. 

The 26-year-old was a seventh-round draft pick in 2015. He started 14 games in 2016 for Denver and finished with 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He dropped off in 10 starts last season, finishing with 2,285 yards, 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
