The Minnesota Vikings are reportedly looking to deal from a position of strength in advance of the regular season.

Now healthy after making his return from a 2015 campaign lost entirely to injury, the Vikings are attempting to trade center John Sullivan, Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports reports.

Sullivan, a ninth-year veteran, has long been a key contributor on the Vikings’ interior offensive front. After a strong season from Joe Berger in his place, though, the Vikings evidently consider the 31-year-old to be expendable.

Sullivan started every game for three consecutive seasons prior to last year’s back issues, and he’d missed just three starts since stepping into a lead role to begin the 2009 season.

Given the clear struggles of offensive line play around the league, the Vikings could conceivably find plenty of suitors for Sullivan on the trade market. Whether a deal takes shape will depend on another team’s willingness to meet Minnesota’s demands for a proven talent at a prime position.
