Raiders trade Nick Mullens for Vikings

USA today

Veteran quarterback Nick Mullens is on the move again.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Raiders traded Mullens to the Vikings for a seventh-round conditional draft pick.

After spending his first four NFL seasons in San Francisco, Mullens has moved around a lot, part of last year in Philadelphia and part of Cleveland, and this year he signed with Las Vegas to now be traded to Minnesota.

Mullens has started 17 games in his NFL career and can lead Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond on the Vikings depth sounder as the No. 2 quarterback behind Kirk Cousins.

Mullens’ departure likely strengthens Jarrett Stidham’s role as the No. 2 quarterback in Las Vegas behind Derek Carr. Stidham previously played for Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels in New England, so he arrived at training camp with a firm hold on offense and will now be the quarterback the Raiders go to when Carr gets injured.
