The Minnesota Vikings have requested permission to speak with Tampa Bay Buccaneers vice president of player personnel John Spytek for their General Manager vacancy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com. He joined the team as director of pro personnel before being promoted to vice president last year. He became the Cleveland Browns director of college scouting in 2010 before moving on to join the Denver Broncos scouting department in 2013.
Spytek left the Broncos to move to Tampa following Denver’s Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers. Patriots player personnel consultant Eliot Wolf and Browns executives Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Glenn Cook have also received interview requests from the Vikings.
