Tom Pelissero reports the Vikings are trading a fourth-round pick to New York for Herndon and a sixth. 

The Vikings get help at tight end after injuries thinned out the group, while Herndon gets a fresh start after not quite putting it together with the Jets. 

Herndon was once seen as a key piece of New York’s offense with a lot of potential, but the young tight end was disappointing in 2020 and was on the block at midseason. 

Herndon, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets out of Miami back in 2018. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $3,171,368 contract that included a $711,368 signing bonus.

In 2020, Herndon appeared in all 16 games for the Jets and caught 31 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns. He also lost two fumbles.
