The Minnesota Vikings are throwing cold water on rumors that they could trade Justin Jefferson.

"That is not something that has ever crossed my mind," Vikings general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah said.

Kevin O'Connell was also asked about potentially trading away his best player, a possibility he railed against. 

"I can tell you we have no intent to trade Justin Jefferson," O'Connell said. "We have had zero discussions, dialogue about that either internally, externally, on this planet or another planet. I feel very strongly that Justin is best in his position in football. Any time you're trying to reset the receiver market -- we know who he is, we know what Justin's earned through his first four years in this league -- you know how hard it is. ... It was never gonna be something that was just be easy to get done, but the intent was there. The intent is still stronger than ever to get something done with Justin."
