Jets trading TE Chris Herndon to Vikings (Report)

The Chris Herndon experiment has concluded in Florham Park.

After three seasons, the Jets are sending the tight end to the Vikings for draft pick compensation, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The #Vikings have solved their TE issue, as they are trading for promising #Jets TE Chris Herndon in exchange for draft pick compensation, sources say. Agent @malkikawa later confirmed the deal. Herndon steps right in following Irv Smith’s knee injury.

Vikings tight end Irv Smith will undergo knee surgery this week, so Minnesota obviously required reinforcements at the position.
