Fabricating Excuses

If you haven’t noticed (you better have!) I am relying on Brett even more than I usually do to help me keep the site fresh with the latest news and rumors surrounding the Vikings.

It just so happens that this is one of those weeks when my real job has me tied up all hours of the day, and I am even more worthless than normal when I get home.

But don’t worry, I talked to Rick Spielman today and he said they would host a few more meetings with ownership and wait until Saturday to make any big roster decisions.  That will give me time recoup from the long work week and bring you the latest, greatest Vikings news as free agency approaches.

Spielman said that his free agency plans are finalized and that the team is simply waiting for March 13th to roll around.  In the meantime, he plans to attend as many pro days as possible, including Oklahoma State and USC, where he will get up-close looks at Matt Kalil and Justin Blackmon.

Oh, and if you are wondering what the heck I am babbling on about, click here to read all about Spielman’s recent statements regarding his plans for the week.

  1. Hey Adam did you tell Rick not to get to cute with trading around draft picks? He didn’t happen to leak any FA targets to you? I guess we’ll know soon enough.

    1. Hey Johnny! Define cute? Here is what I told him:

      “Okay, Ricky Bobby, here’s the plan. Trade down right now to a top ten pick. Then, trade down again to a top 15 pick right now. Then, trade down again to a top 25 pick. Okay, one more time but make sure you don’t trade out of the first round. Then, sign Mike Wallace to an offer sheet he can’t refuse and give the Steelers that late first rounder in exchange. Use the rest of the picks you got to rebuild this roster.”

      Too cute? Nah! 🙂

  2. Hey Ak,

    Using one of your older handles just to remind I’ve been a fan of your babbalingly balderdash for some time now and also let you know I still tune in every day (Mostly) and read the posts.
    I sure don’t comment as much as I should but lots going on for me at work too and it’s hard to make the time to stop in but surfice to say Adam, I sure appreciate having your stuff here to read on a continueing basis so, thank you for that, And Brett too. A great nucleus of two, you two are, to get us ready for the up-coming FA, draft and preseason. I look forward to getting back into the swing of things soon.

    In the meantime Adam, could you further expand on your comment; “I talked to Rick Spielman today”?

    1. Thanks Fran! All of you guys are so great, and the biggest reason I find motivation to keep going!

      Days have been really long this week, holy smokes! Lots of hours. Tomorrow I get home, though, and after loving on my family for a night, I’ll be ready to go for what is looking like it could be an interesting weekend for the Vikes.

      (Oh, and it was actually Pelissero that talked to Spielman in the link above, not me. Sorry to disappoint .)

      1. Thanks Fran! Really appreciate the kind words.

        There will be more great content to come. I had surgery today on my finger (broke it two weeks ago thinking I was Randy Moss and playing catch with a buddy…) so it’s a little difficult to type. Trying to make do though and put up what I can.

        I second what Adam says. You all have been really welcoming to me on VT and it’s been awesome. Really happy to be involved in a such a great Vikes community.
