he was the 6th best slot corner in 19. what the actual hell? They kept that human trash bag Gladney over him?

I can't call him a human trash bag until actual details come out other than the speculated ones which sound really bad.  But, Hughes was more expendable because he's in the last year of his deal.

Looks like the Vikings weren't planning on keeping Hughes on their 53. It is better to get something for him than nothing, but that ended up being another terrible draft pick for the Vikings. Spielman has been pretty bad in the draft overall.

He was really good in 19. This makes no sense any way you slice it. We had the money to keep him around and get him healthy. A 2022 6th? Really?

I’m guessing a couple of extensions aren’t too far away from being announced. 

Agreed, along with rumored interest in Kerrigan/Westbrook.

I'm sure they'll find a way to spend the $$$.

I’ll be curious to see if Hughes passes the physical to complete the trade. 

With our luck, he will probably slip off the scale and injure something.

That’s actually not terrible return for an injury prone CB that seemed unlikely to make the team. Was a bad first round selection but at least they got something out of him.

We must feel confident about Gladney playing this season. 
 

Also, prepare yourselves for Hughes becoming a stud. Because that’s our luck. 

Pro Bowler, or merely a PB alternate?

Has that happened under this regime? 

When this team gives up on a player, it’s been for good reason.

The other 6th that KC has is from Baltimore. 

Those are both teams that I would project into the playoffs. The difference between our seventh round pick and their sixth round pick won't be much if the Vikings don't improve over last year.

Oh well, if the guys wasn't going to make the team it is better to get whatever you can. 

I wonder if the team has information that leads them to believe that Gladney will not be on the commissioners exempt list this year. Perhaps a plea deal is coming. Then the only concern is a suspension, which would be much shorter than hanging out on the exempt list while waiting for the slow legal process.
