Monday has been a busy day for the Minnesota Vikings in their search for a new general manager.

The Vikings have also requested interview with New England Patriots player personnel consultant Eliot Wolf, Browns executive Glenn Cook, Eagles director of player personnel Brandon Brown and Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles.

Raîche came to the Eagles from the Canadian Football League, where she had spent five years working for the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts.

  1. By the time the Wilfs make a decision the best candidates will probably have accepted jobs.

  2. I’m guessing most of us do not know much about any of these people, other than what we’ve read over the past 10 days. Here’s to just hoping whoever the new GM is drafts a CB in round 1, and finally fixes the OL permanently. Oh, and they should probably sign Cousins to 2 more years and fix that salary cap number of his.

  3. The Vikings’ best teams were run by exiles from Canada (Finks and Grant). Maybe Raiche, a Canadian, would foster-in another excellent era for the Vikings.
