Vikings Trade CB Mike Hughes To Chiefs

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- The Minnesota Vikings have traded former first-round pick Mike Hughes to the Kansas City Chiefs.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the deal.

The Vikings are also sending a 2022 seventh-rounder to the Chiefs, and getting a sixth-round pick in return.

The Vikings drafted Hughes with the 30th overall pick in 2018. He tore his ACL in his rookie season and ended up on the injured reserve list each of the next two seasons.

This offseason, the Vikings signed cornerbacks Patrick Peterson and Mackensie Alexander. Another of the team's first-round corners, Jeff Gladney, was charged with third-degree felony assault in Texas earlier this offseason.
