At least 12 teams have made trade inquiries about Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison, a source told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press.

Mattison is entering the final year of his contract and is reportedly unwilling to re-sign in Minnesota because he wants to start.

Three-time Pro Bowler Dalvin Cook, who is signed through the 2025 season, is cemented as the Vikings’ top running back.

The NFC North club would need a third- or fourth-round pick to consider trading Mattison, a source told Tomasson.

The 24-year-old Mattison spent the last three seasons as Cook’s primary backup, producing 400-yard campaigns each year. He also started six games over the past two seasons in relief of an injured Cook, rushing for over 90 yards in four of them.
