With the eyes of the National Football League focused on the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this week, there are rumors flying fast and furious. One, from Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports, is going to be of particular interest to fans of the Minnesota Vikings.

(A brief aside on other players available ahead of the league year. League sources said the Vikings are shopping corner Trae Waynes, the Bears are shopping running back Jordan Howard, the Chiefs are talking trade on Justin Houston and the Eagles are open to moving Nelson Agholor).

In line with some of the speculation that we’ve been hearing over the course of the past few weeks, it appears that the Vikings. . .at least according to LaCanfora. . .are looking to potentially trade cornerback Trae Waynes before the new league year starts on 13 March.

The Vikings have some pretty significant depth at the cornerback spot, and with the price tag for Xavier Rhodes likely being something that would keep potential trade partners away, it appears that Waynes could end up being the odd man out.
