Vikings GM Rick Spielman Says Trade Talk for the #3 Pick Heating Up

Just two days before the NFL Draft begins, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman stayed on message Tuesday during a press conference at Winter Park.

The Vikings are far from attached to their No. 3 pick, more than willing to discuss trade offers from any and all interested teams.

And curiosity around the league, Spielman reports, is percolating according to Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

“That front has really heated up over the last 24 hours,” he said. “And I’m sure it will continue to heat up as we head for Thursday night.”

Spielman said it would take an offer “almost too good to be true” to finalize a trade before the draft begins. Instead, the Vikings are likely to take a more patient approach.

“I really believe in being patient and settling and seeing what comes to you,” Spielman said. “[We’re] not soliciting, going out there and making calls. There have been X amount of teams that have already started to call. Everything’s intriguing this time of year.”
