Article Summary:

The Minnesota Vikings hired Cleveland Browns vice president of football operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah to serve as the team’s general manager, the team announced. “Kwesi’s infectious energy, critical thinking skills, collaborative spirit and expertise across the football operations/player personnel spectrum made a lasting footprint here in a short period of time. These same characteristics will make him an exceptional leader, problem-solver and roster architect for the Vikings.”

Head coach Kevin Stefanski, who had been within Minnesota’s organization from 2006-2019, believes that Adofo-Mensah will institute a process that leads to sustained success.

“I’ve enjoyed getting to know Kwesi and working with him for the last two years. He’s worked extremely hard for this opportunity, and the Vikings are getting an outstanding person that will be driven to build a winning culture. Kwesi has been a great resource for me and our coaching staff and he will do everything in his power to install a process within the Vikings organization that will lead to success.”

Minnesota had narrowed its search to Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles – who was hired as the Bears’ new GM – and Adofo-Mensah.

The Vikings are the third team to hire a new general manager this offseason joining the Giants and the Bears.
