The first Vikings general manager search in 16 years put team officials in interviews with the widest range of candidates in club history.

The winning candidate took a path to the GM's office like few in the NFL.

Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, the Browns' vice president of football operations - a 40-year-old with economics degrees from Princeton and Stanford and eight years of experience on Wall Street before nine in the NFL - was hired as the Vikings' new GM on Wednesday, in the first step of a process that could reshape the team's football operation for years to come.
