January 13, 2022
The first two days of the Vikings' general manager and coaching searches have played out relatively quietly, with executive vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski, chief operating officer Andrew Miller and co-directors of player personnel Ryan Monnens and Jamaal Stephenson huddling with team ownership to form a list of candidates.
But there were signs things were starting to pick up as of Wednesday evening.
People with knowledge of the GM and coaching searches around the league pointed to five candidates - Browns vice president of football operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, Eagles player personnel director Brandon Brown, Colts assistant GM Ed Dodds, Seahawks VP of player personnel Trent Kirchner and Cowboys VP of player personnel Will McClay - as names to watch for the GM job. The Vikings requested interviews with Adofo-Mensah, Browns vice president of player personnel Glenn Cook, Patriots personnel consultant Eliot Wolf and Buccaneers' vice president of player personnel John Spytek, according to a source with knowledge of the team's plans.
