Scott Studwell retiring after 42 years with Vikings

Scott Studwell made it official on Tuesday as the Vikings prepare for the NFL Draft. He is retiring at the end of May, when his current contract with the Vikings is due to expire. He’s been a college scout with Minnesota since his playing career ended in 1991.
He plans mostly on spending more time with his family. That includes his wife, Jenny, their kids and grandkids. It’s something he’s missed a lot of in 28 years as a scout.Read the full article
Rick Spielman on NFL Draft: Wife said don't come home if you draft another corner
Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman has very specific instructions from within his own household when it comes to the No. 18 pick in the NFL Draft Thursday night.
“Everybody has angst. My wife, I’ll leave that at home. She said if I draft another corner, don’t come home. You can just stay at the office,” Spielman said.
The Vikings general manager is getting ready for his eighth NFL Draft in that role, and 14th overall as a leader in the front office. When it comes to the draft, pretty much everybody has an opinion.

It’s what makes the No. 18 pick for the Vikings so crucial Thursday night, after missing the NFC Playoffs last year for the third time in five seasons under Mike Zimmer.Read the full article

The Loons are back home this week, and on a short week, they’re hosting one of the best teams in the Western Conference Wednesday night at Allianz Field.Read the full article
