Rick Spielman has completed his combine press conference and to say the thing was sort of lacking in meat would be understating things. Actually it was totally meatless. PETA would’ve approved of this press conference.
The highlights if you can even call them highlights:
Spielman was asked about Percy Harvin. He said the Vikings have no intention to trade Percy Harvin. Beat writers will spend the rest of the afternoon analyzing Spielman’s inflections for signs that the Vikings do indeed intend to trade Percy Harvin. Because of course they do.
Spielman said the Vikes will look closely at draft prospects’ social media activities. This is all Manti Te’o's fault. Thanks Manti. You jerk.
Spielman says the Vikes have spoken to agents for some UFAs and will speak more.
Spielman really likes the defensive linemen in this draft. Hey did I mention the Vikings have a couple defensive linemen they’re trying to leverage into re-working their contracts?
To sum up: Percy Harvin is still a Viking, Manti Te’o is ruining it for everyone else, teams talk to agents at the combine, the draft is deep in defensive linemen. And Rick Spielman is a champion bullsh***er.
