Rick Spielman’s Willingness To Deal Should Be No Surprise
Once upon a time, I wrote an article at Vikings Gab that sparked a very interesting and heated discussion in the comments section because I, at least a little, ripped apart Rick Spielman’s history of making perfectly good draft picks disappear with little to show for it.
This upcoming Draft worries me because Spielman could once again find himself in a position to move around, and acknowledged as much when discussing having the third overall pick.
“[W]e’ll be looking at all the options,” Spielman told the NFL Network on Wednesday. “If someone wants to come up and get our pick, we’re going to be more than willing to listen.”
Of course, this should come as no surprise, as it would be disappointing to hear the General Manager say he has already made his mind up in January. For me the statement did, however, bring all those same fears bubbling back to the surface.
