    Rick Spielman to the Vikings???

    Saw a thread on finheaven.com that Rick Spielman (former Dolphins' GM) was going to work for the Vikings. Supposedly reported by Chris Spielman on his radio show on sports radio 1460.

    If I were you guys, I would hope that it's not true, or if it is, that he will have very limited responsibilities (like running on the field to retrieve the kicking tee).

    I agree. Spielman is a joke. I sure hope he doesn't wander up to Minnesota.

    Re: Rick Spielman to the Vikings???

    Yup its true..Hes our new VP of Player Personnel..

    The Minnesota Vikings have named Rick Spielman as Vice President of Player Personnel. Spielman brings 15 seasons of NFL personnel experience with Detroit, Chicago, and Miami to the position.

    "We are extremely excited to hire Rick as our Vice President of Player Personnel," said Vikings Owner/Chairman Zygi Wilf. "We are impressed with Rick's expertise, passion, character and work ethic."

    His professional experience already has Spielman familiar with the NFC North as he spent his opening 10 years in the profession with Detroit (1990-96) and Chicago (1997-99) before spending five seasons in Miami (2000-04).

    During his NFL tenure, Spielman has been a part of 3 divisional championships and 6 playoff teams.

    The brother of former Detroit and Buffalo Pro Bowl LB Chris Spielman, Rick and his wife, Michelle, have adopted four children, are in the process of adopting two more, and are known for their generosity with children's charities. A native of Massillon, OH, Spielman was a LB at Southern Illinois University from 1983-86 and earned 1st-team All-Gateway Conference honors as a junior in 1985. He was a part of the Salukis' Division IAA national championship team in 1983 as a redshirt freshman. Spielman has a bachelor's degree from SIU and a master's from Ohio State.

    Is he taking Foley's place?
    O Gads, the Fins board is having a blast with this one. Telling us the Vikes just made a worse decision than giving Culpepper to them.

    A few personnel decisions made by Rick Spielman while with the Dolphins

    Opting against drafting a young, speedy wide receiver Rick Spielman acquired an injury prone and behavior risk David Boston. Boston got hurt in the preseason and missed the entire year. David Boston now plays for Tampa Bay.

    Traded defensive end Adewale Ogunleye, the Dolphins’s 2003 Most Valuable Player for less than fair market value (WR Marty Booker and a 2005 third round pick)

    Replaced Adewale Ogunleye with Chidi Ahanotu, a player who ended up quitting the Dolphins mid season.

    Instead of signing a solid veteran player to lead a veteran Miami Dolphin team with a limited window of opportunity to win, Rick Spielman overpaid for A.J. Feeley and then re-signed Jay Fiedler. Both are no longer with the Dolphins.

    It seems like a bad dream. What are these jokers thinking.

    I thought we were supposed to get an upgrade over Foley.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    If he is willing to work with others and value their opinions I have no problem with hiring him.
