The Minnesota Vikings have found their new general manager. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Cleveland Browns vice president of football operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has been hired to be the Vikings' GM.

Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reported that Adofo-Mensah will sign a four-year contract with the Vikings. The Browns will receive two compensatory draft picks for a developing minority candidate for a general manager position.

Adofo-Mensah spent six years with the San Francisco 49ers, starting in 2013, before joining the Browns in 2020. Both teams snapped multi-year playoff droughts in his final season with them. The New Jersey native and graduate of Princeton University was one of eight candidates interviewed by Minnesota.

The Vikings posted a mediocre offense despite having 2022 Pro Bowlers Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson and former Pro Bowlers Kirk Cousins and Adam Thielen. Minnesota failed to reach the playoffs for a second consecutive season. After the disappointing end to the season, GM Rick Spielman was fired along with head coach Mike Zimmer.

Adofo-Mensah has plenty of holes to fill on Minnesota's roster. Still, he will have some stars already in place to help right the ship. He will have the 12th overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft, as well as extra late-round picks, to help make the Vikings a playoff team again.
