Article Summary:

EAGAN, Minn. – The Minnesota Vikings have hired Cleveland Browns vice president of football operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah as their new general manager, the team announced Wednesday night.

Adofo-Mensah is the 10th person in franchise history to hold a general manager title and/or carry out the duties of the team’s GM. Adofo-Mensah comes to Minnesota after spending the 2020-21 seasons in Cleveland working under general manager Andrew Berry.

As the Vikings conducted interviews for their next general manager – starting with eight candidates, before narrowing down their search to two finalists in Adofo-Mensah and former Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles – the team also spoke with eight candidates for its opening at head coach, a candidate pool that contains five defensive coordinators and three offensive coordinators. Adofo-Mensah inherits a structure with the Vikings that is currently without an assistant general manager but does have high-ranking personnel executives, including Brzezinski, who manages the team’s salary cap, and co-directors of player personnel Ryan Monnens and Jamaal Stephenson.
