Reports: Vikings discussing possible trade for Mark Sanchez


Multiple reports say the Vikings are considering a trade for Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Minnesota is faced with a difficult situation after Teddy Bridgewater went down with a season-ending knee injury on Tuesday. Veteran Shaun Hill is incumbent starter, but if the Vikings don't feel comfortable with Hill they would need to look outside the organization.

Enter Sanchez, whom the Broncos are shopping, per reports.

USA Today's Broncos Wire says Sanchez is expected to be cut or traded before Saturday's deadline to trim rosters to 53 players.

Sanchez is owed $4.5 million this season and the Vikings would be willing to pay that in full, according to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole.
