Rick Spielman

Rick Spielman and the Minnesota Vikings passed on nose tackle Andrew Billings once, twice, and then a third time when they decided to trade out of the third round completely on Friday evening.

Their trade partner was the Miami Dolphins who moved up to #86 to acquire Rutgers wide out Leonte Carroo.

In exchange, the Vikings have reportedly received a sixth round pick (#186) and Miami’s third and fourth round picks in 2017.

 

If the rumors of Billings’ knee injuries are at all true, and considering the lack of any desperate needs across the Vikings roster, I think this was Spielman flat out fleecing his former team and setting himself up nicely for next year.

More importantly, however, what do you think of these Vikings trade details?
