Check out our stuff on Bleacher Report!

During the 2020 season, not a single week went by where we here at UFFda! Sports were roped into writing about former Minnesota Vikings receiver and current Buffalo Bill Stefon Diggs. Despite the disproportionate amount of engagement those articles produced, there was nothing more that I personally wanted to do more than move on from writing about/dealing with the Bills and it’s “Mafia”. 

As I said in response to some of those stories, as members of the media we don’t always have a choice over what we cover. Instead, we cover what is out there when it pertains to our subject matter. Case in point, this article from Brandin Croce of FanSided’s Bills network. 

I’m 36 years old despite my baby face/credit/genitals. I remember a time in the early-to-mid aughts in which Minnesota felt like a minor league team for the East Coast (mainly Boston). With Kevin Garnett playing for the Celtics, Randy Moss the Patriots, and Big Papi the Red Sox, many of us were incredibly frustrated at the state of Minnesota sports at the time.

While little has changed in the frustration department, the last thing the Vikings need is to feed another mid-20’s superstar to the East Coast. When you add to that the fact that it’s the Bills? That can’t happen. It’d help the Bills build upon their 2020 and could create a championship level team for years to come, something that we’ve already assisted with via trade with the Dallas Cowboys in the early-90’s with the Herschel Walker trade. 

Beyond that, Hunter is the type of talent you only trade away if you have no other option. Considering the fact that superstars like Russell Wilson and DeShaun Watson have zero interest in coming to Minnesota, it might be hard to replace Hunter via free agency if free agents don’t want to come here. 

The Vikings and Hunter may very well may reach that point, as all the variables are there. The Vikings are strapped for cash, Hunter is unhappy with his compensation but also is coming off of a major injury. 

What does Croce say the Bills would give for Hunter?

“If the Buffalo Bills are able to send a trade package that includes their first round pick this year, with a few later round picks, it would address their pass rush not only this year, but moving forward and continue to build the foundation for sustained success.”

The Bills did send the Vikings a deal they couldn’t refuse last off-season for Diggs after learning from their pre-2019 season denied offer, so they could justify doing the same for Hunter as they’d most likely spend their first on an edge anyway. On top of that, the Diggs trade clearly worked out for them (which helps). 

The issue is that their first-round pick is in the high 20’s thanks to how that trade worked out, which makes it pretty much the same as a high second rounder. Hunter is worth a lot more than that in a league that increasingly values his services, and especially to a team helmed by Mike Zimmer. 

If the Vikings do end up trading Hunter my only request would be that they don’t send him to Buffalo. Call it selfish, but it’s kind of hard to get the smell of chicken parts, Axe body spray and Camaro exhaust out of our websites.  

You know I only kid because I love BillsMafia. Which reminds me! Great nickname! Cause neither the Bills or Mafia have been relevant since the early ‘90’s.

Just because some media fanboys say “Gee it would be nice if we could get stud player x” from team Y at lower than market price (a late first rounder and some change is clearly lower than the market for Hunter) does not mean it is news nor interesting.

You’re fat, your websites obviously are hurting for money with all the advertising that I can’t seem to get around your articles without having to look for some stupid hepatitis C signs or loading an ad for a car because you’re desperate for your cash number two on the issue if you’ve ever been to Buffalo you would know that they don’t even have IROCs out anymore lol The Camaro isn’t even cool it was the trans am and that died out in ’02. you obviously like chicken parts things that smell like ax because you can’t get a girl if you tried and your websites but you clearly own anybody can make a domain name and put a bunch of crap on it that nobody responds to The only reason why I found this article is because I think the Danielle trade would be this most stupid thing the bills could do from a guy coming off a neck injury yeah might it have you he had a great couple of years but who’s to know that he couldn’t slam into alignment and fall fight on his face like a poor guy remember 20 years ago I think it was on his first play in the NFL playing a kickoff yeah that would be great A guy with a neck injury coming off of his first year whose so-called unhappy with Minnesota who isn’t unhappy with that shit team you guys got from championship caliber to under 500 I mean the Buffalo Bills in the Minnesota Vikings are the only two teams who haven’t won a Super Bowl and now you’re complaining that the bills finally have come back to be not just a stop together team made from a bunch of high-end free agents like Jerry Jones did in the 90s but like they did in the ’90s and put together a team with drafts smart trades and a good upper office given the keys to by the new ownership who actually were fans the team our fans of the team and didn’t just buy it just to say they wanted to be part of the 1/32nd club

vikings don’t want to have winning team just interested in saving their jobs over paying one player so they can’t pay anyone else Cousins may be good not worth what they are paying him

Given Hunter’s injury history and the fact that he missed a year, a first round pick for him would seem like a great deal. The difference between great a mediocre for a DE is very thin, and if Hunter has lost a little bit of his explosion, he won’t be worth it. So if offered, hell yeah the Vikings should take it.
