The Vikings traded with the Lions for TE T.J. Hockenson and made Aaron Rodgers’ life even more difficult.

The Minnesota Vikings sit atop the NFC North at 6-1, just a game behind the Eagles for the best record in the NFC. A distant second, the Packers and Bears are tied in the division at 3-5.

Aaron Rodgers has had it hard this season, but with the first trade of NFL trade deadline day, two NFC North foes conspired against Rodgers and the Packers to widen the talent gap between the Vikes and Packers even further.

Adam Schefter reported that the Lions are trading tight end T.J. Hockenson to the Vikings in exchange for future second- (2023) and third-round (2024) picks. They also receive a 2023 fourth-round pick.

Twitter had thoughts about the deal, because when does it not?

Twitter thinks the Packers are done for after this trade

A gold Tweet to start us off that captures Aaron Rodgers most likely reaction to the trade:

It’s funny that the fallout of the trade has us thinking most about the Vikings and Packers first and second, and the Lions third.

Pat McAfee had thoughts.

The Vikings face the Lions in Week 14. As a Lion, Hockenson had over 2,000 yards receiving and 15 touchdowns over the span of four seasons (47 games).

On its face this looks like a winner for the Vikings. But then again…

Fans think the Vikings ceiling probably isn’t going much higher as a result of the deal:

It’s just the first trade of the day, and Twitter has jokes. Should be a good platform for Hockenson to really show what he’s got.
