    Minnesota Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman said the team's owners have not discouraged him and his staff from pursuing an expensive free agent.

    Despite the team's continued revenue challenges — they are last among the NFL's 32 teams — Spielman said Zygi Wilf and his ownership group are "committed to try to put the best product out on the field.

    Good to hear...

    Can't wait for free agency to start, by far one of my favorite times of the year.

    [size=13pt]Minnesota Vikings' VP of personnel Rick Spielman not impressed with this year's free agent QB class[/size]

    INDIANAPOLIS — Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman insisted the team isn't treating the quarterback position any differently than the others.

    But he didn't sound overly impressed by this year's free-agent class.

    On Jackson, Spielman said, "I think everybody knows Tarvaris has shown progress since he's been here.

    "As Brad (Childress) has said in the past, it's the maturation of a young quarterback. It's very rare that there's a Matt Ryan type," said Spielman, who then noted that players such as Tony Romo didn't flourish until their fourth or fifth years in the NFL.

    Only time well tell. I just hope we don't sign a bust or over pay for someone.

    Why are they asking Ole Ricky Boy these questions......... :
    Doesn't the HC make all these types of decisions on his own.

    Anyway, good read my friend.
    Thanks

    I don't want us to overspend tremendously. all these big contracts...
    We also need to keep something free for the draft picks. I'm curious if 2010 will be an uncapped year...
