NFL Alum-knight Mike Hughes is charging on to a new home.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Minnesota Vikings are trading CB Mike Hughes to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Vikings are receiving a 2022 sixth-round pick and are also packaging a 2022 seventh-round pick along with Hughes.
Hughes joined the UCF Knights in their national championship campaign, where he pulled off one of the most iconic plays in program history.
This play, coupled with a stellar season at cornerback, propelled the Vikings to select him 30th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
However, since he arrived in Minnesota, Hughes has spent more time on the sideline than the field. This led Minnesota to decline his fifth-year player option, making him a free agent following the 2021 season.
Then, they sent him off to the two-time reigning AFC champions in what appears to be a “prove it” year for the former first round Alum-knight.
Let’s hope Hughes can get back on his feet with the Chiefs.
