6. Minnesota Vikings
The Vikings made their running back priorities clear when the brought Alexander Mattison back on a two-year deal and have been non-committal about Dalvin Cook’s immediate future. Trade rumors linger around Cook, and there’s a faint possibility the Vikings eventually just cut him for the cap relief. In any case, he’s gone if everything we can read into from in the Vikings’ building and has been reported is to be believed.
Mattison has limitations as a pass catcher, though that may be roote in simply not getting much opportunity more than his lack of ability in that area. Swift would be able to fill that void as a pass catching back, which would hypothetically be left behind by Cook’s departure. While Mattison does the work of a lead back, which he has shown he can do capably when he’s had a chance and the Vikings seem to buying into the idea he can do on a more regular basis, Swift would be a fit as another weapon in an offense that could certainly use them.
Doing business within the division is an overrated and outdated fear. If the Vikings want Swift, and maybe they’d just even part with a 2024 draft pick, a deal could get done.
