The Philadelphia Eagles could help the Minnesota Vikings’ offensive line.

Trade proposal: The Philadelphia Eagles send offensive tackle Andre Dillard and a 2022 seventh-round pick to Minneapolis, and in exchange, the Minnesota Vikings send a 2022 third-round selection as well as a 2022 sixth-round selection. 

The Minnesota Vikings are actually the perfect trade partners for Howie Roseman and the Philadelphia Eagles. The Viking’s 2020 season was hampered by horrible offensive line play which would basically shut down any real chance of making a true playoff run one season later as well if it continues.

The fact of the matter is the Vikings are atrocious at times up front. Now, we understand that it’s only the preseason, but if week one against the Denver Broncos was any indication of what’s to come for Minnesota during the coming campaign, the Vikings’ offense can expect some dark clouds to hover over them moving forward. Watching this unit play is hard to do.

Trading for Andre Dillard could give the Vikings line a potential solid building block as Dillard has the skillset to be a bookend for years to come. Maybe a change of scenery and a switch to the right side of the offensive line could give his career new life. It didn’t work when he tried it here, but maybe it will work if he’s in another jersey.
