The Vikings have extended the contract of General Manager Rick Spielman through the 2020 season, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.
The one-year extension through the 2020 season keeps him “synched up” with coach Mike Zimmer, Vikings president and co-owner Mark Wilf told Goessling.
The Vikings picked up the option on Zimmer’s contract last month, extending him through 2020.
It still remains a pivotal year for Spielman and Zimmer, per Goessling, with changes possible after the season if the Vikings don’t win.
Minnesota missed the postseason with an 8-7-1 record last season.
Spielman has served as the team’s General Manager for seven seasons after five as the vice president of player personnel.
