Las Vegas Raiders trade QB Nick Mullens to Minnesota Vikings
In a transaction with the Minnesota Vikings, the Las Vegas Raiders trade QB Nick Mullens and receive a conditional 2024 seventh-round pick. Mullens must play in one game in the 2022 season in order for the trade’s requirements to be fulfilled, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
The Raiders signed Mullens this summer as an unrestricted free agent. He has appeared in 20 career games with 17 starts and 407 completions out of 630 attempts for 4,861 yards with 26 touchdowns and 22 picks. Mullens recorded a passer rating of 87.3.
As Raiders trade QB Nick Mullens to the Vikings, he’ll get an opportunity to play backup QB behind Kirk Cousins. Mullens, who played for Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels in New England, had little chance of making the Raiders 53-man roster behind starting QB Derek Carr and backup QB Jarrett Stidham.
The Raiders have also signed LB Tae Davis in their exchange with Minnesota. Over the course of his four-year career, the Chattanooga product has appeared in 39 games with five starts, 37 tackles, 28 solo tackles, and two passes defensed. Davis played for the Houston Texans (2020–2021), Cleveland Browns (2019–2020), and New York Giants (2018–2019).
