PFT Live: Rick Spielman and Darren Rovell

Another episode of PFT Live kicks off at noon ET on Thursday and a couple of guests will be joining Mike Florio.

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman will be on the show to talk about what his team has been up to this offseason. We’ll also see what might be in store with the third overall pick in the draft and catch up on Adrian Peterson’s rehabilitation efforts after knee surgery.

Florio will also speak to Darren Rovell of CNBC about Tim Tebow. They’ll discuss Nike’s lawsuit against Reebok for selling Jets jerseys with Tebow’s name and number after the company’s licensing agreement with the NFL expired. They’ll also talk about Tebow’s overall financial impact now that he’s playing in the New York City area.

You can watch it all live at noon ET.

    Yeah the guy is an idiot…….2 offensive rookies of the year in the last 6 years. I love his approach so far. Two or three high dollar free agents wouldn’t be a quick fix for the Vikings.

    @ammarradhi – All good teams are built through solid drafting year after year. I’m a life long Vikings fan, and I’m thrilled they didn’t blow their wad on big buck free agents this year. We are not a championship team right now, we need more young studs.

    I hope thats EXACTLY what he says! Dont know much about football do ya ammarradhi? Look at how good teams are built, like the Packers. Was it through the draft or by buying a bunch of free agents like the Redskins….by the way, which has worked better, the Redskin way or the Packer way?

    I hope they do exactly what they are doing, its a recipe for success.

    What has Spielman’s team been up to this offseason? Sleeping through free agency thus far, and doing absolutely nothing to add any quality to the team’s roster that will help them compete for a playoff spot.

    Memo to Zygi Wilf: go hire Bill Polian…..PLEASE.

    @fwippel, Why in the heck would Wilf or anyone want Bill Polian? Polian has an absolutely terrible draft record recently. Look at the Colts last year and look at the year the Patriots lost Brady… Keep things in place and keep drafting well, it’s the receipt for success.

    rounds 3 & beyond have hardly been a success story for the vikings though the past 6 years. thats why this team has below average talent at most positions and zero roster depth.

    Enough of the Packers were built completely through the draft B.S. when they had one of the greatest free agent signings & 1 of the main keys to their Super Bowl run in Woodson.

    Good teams are built through the draft and great free agent signings. So let’s hope Spielman finds a pick up like Woodson.

    REALLY ?????? Brian Robison, Ray Edwards, Jasper Brinkley, Jamarca Samford, John Sullivan, Guion, Jeff Dugan, Mewlede Moore, Everson Griffen, Ballard, Raymond, Fusco,Tyler Thigpen.
    Thats 14 players drafted in the 4th or later rounds since 2004. All of these guys made the team to add depth or are starters. In the same span the Vikings were also without 1 5th, 2 6th, 3 7th and 2 4th round picks.
    Teams use the 4th thru 7th rounds to add depth to a team not to find starters. Sometimes you find a diamond in the rough and alot of times players dont even make the squad. Granted players like Raymond, and Jamarca Samford were not very good as starters but they were thrown to the wolves because of injuries.. I doubt very much when Raymond was drafted there was not much thought of him getting much playing time for the first couple years.
    I looked at New Englands draft picks over the last 8 years in rounds 4-7 and only saw two names that I have ever heard of Matt Cassel and Garret Mills. I am sure some of the other guys on the list played and contributed but my point s I didnt see many starters in the bunch.

    Why the heck did they sign Carlson to that loot??? With that division as good as it is we will be at the bottom with Ponder at the helm. It blew my mind they wasted a 12th pick on a noodle armed fool, when they could of traded that pick for more picks and drafted that bum in the next round. With our “look out offensive line” Ponders gonna get more than a hip injury next year. Speilman you should of attempted to get Manning????????????????????????????????????

    u named 13 players out of possible 36, thats 33% of the picks in that period of which most are not even capable starters but barely making team. when u have average talent like that starting it certainly kills your roster depth. in order to be sucessfull thru draft you must hit70-80% even to think bout being good, if you r building team thru draft, that is a terrible success rate & can expect to dilute roster within 3-4 years which is exactly what the vikings have done. if u take out the first 2 rounds of draft in last 6 years, the vikings have zero above average starting players to show for it, your argument only works if u want average backups playing in starter roles.

    they also went thru 14 qb’s alone thx to chili & spielman
