Notion Broncos Baited Vikings Into Trade Refuted by J.J. McCarthy

Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton recently made a criticism to the Minnesota Vikings by implying that he spearheaded a scheme to outwit their management and trade up for quarterback J.J. McCarthy.

In an interview with Paul Allen on @KFAN1003 on Monday, April 29, McCarthy denied rumors that Payton and the Broncos had no real interest in picking him. That idea lies at the heart of Payton’s recent allegations that Denver used deceit to lure Minnesota into making the trade for the quarterback.

The Purple Persuasion X account grabbed the pertinent passage from Allen and McCarthy’s interview and shared it on social media on Monday, even though the entire conversation can be seen by clicking the link above.

McCarthy reportedly said to thinking there was a possibility he would be a Bronco, according to TPP. “After seeing the first six picks, I really felt like I was going to go to those two spots,” the player said. And both are fantastic places, but I can’t wait to play for coach [Kevin] O’Connell in the Midwest.”

Even though Payton lured the Vikings into an unnecessary trade with the Jets, the team still won the first round of the NFL Draft.

On Thursday night, following his Broncos’ selection of Oregon quarterback Bo Nix with the 12th pick, Payton made his initial remarks.
With a smirk and a joke, Payton said to reporters, “I was actively involved in trying to pretend we were moving forward [in our pursuit of McCarthy].”
The Denver Broncos 365 X account provided the first video of the 10-second footage, which was captioned, “Sean Payton admits he baited Minnesota forcing them to trade up for J.J. McCarthy.”

Whether or not Payton and the Broncos were guilty for the baiting, Minnesota lost a fourth- and a fifth-round pick as a result of the Vikings’ trade with the New York Jets to move up from No. 11 to No. 10. As compensation, the group relocated

The fact that several well-known draft experts projected the Vikings would need to surrender picks Nos. 11 and 23 this year along with a 2025 first-round pick to get into the top five if they wanted McCarthy is lost in at least some of the outrage that followed Payton’s remarks to the media on Thursday.
Rather, Minnesota decided to hold onto both its first-round pick and its 23rd pick for the following year. The No. 23 pick was later utilized as the focal point of a deal that allowed Minnesota to move up to No. 17 and take Alabama edge rusher Dallas Turner.

For Minnesota, keeping their 2025 first-round pick and drafting Dallas Turner were both victories.

It’s possible that McCarthy misinterpreted Payton and the Broncos’ intentions or that he misinterpreted their mood.
Alternatively, Denver might have been attempting to hide their tracks after failing to acquire McCarthy or Drake Maye in a trade. The Broncos were forced to choose Nix at No. 12 after losing out on those two players and Michael Penix Jr., who the Atlanta Falcons took eighth overall.

Payton and other elite members of the Denver leadership are the only ones who will ever genuinely know, therefore any further discussion on the subject will always remain speculative.

What’s more significant—and true—is that Minnesota signed a champion quarterback, who scouts had been connecting the Vikings with for months, and for a lot less money than they had anticipated. Due to that outcome, the Vikings were able to retain their first-round pick from the previous season and acquire Turner as a respectable defensive edge replacement for Danielle Hunter.

Whichever way Payton or anybody else chooses to look at it, those are all enormous victories for Minnesota.
