Trade Adrian Peterson?

No, there aren't any rumors. I just wish there were.

Yes, AP is a great player, despite a small issue with fumbleitis. But in a draft considered as one of the deepest in years, trading AP for a couple #1s and a #2 (and very possibly more) seems tempting.

For fun, let's say we traded AP to Seattle for their two #1s (picks 6 & 14) and single #2 (pick 40) in the upcoming draft. The Vikings would have 5 of the top 62 picks, and their draft could look something like this:

6. Eric Berry, S (Tennessee) -or- Joe Haden, CB (Florida)
14. C. J. Spiller, RB (Clemson)
30. Patrick Robinson, CB (Florida State) -or- Dominique Franks, CB (Oklahoma)
40. Charles Brown, OT (USC)
62. Tony Pike, QB (Cincinnati)

Eric Berry is considered the best Safety prospect since Ed Reed. C. J. Spiller was the #1 player in the nation coming out of high school and is the #1 RB prospect in the draft. Robinson and Franks are considered two of the top few CB prospects. Brown is a top-10, maybe a top-5 OT selection this year. And Pike has the size and supposedly the tools to be an excellent pro QB.

Those are players that would help immediately, and could be the backbone of the team for years.

Sure seems like an interesting option to me...
