There’s a chance that Rick Spielman of the Minnesota Vikings could be featured on an upcoming TV show produced by former NFL general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Rick Spielman is currently in the middle of his 10th year as the general manager of the Minnesota Vikings.

The decision to promote Spielman in 2012 to be the team’s general manager has resulted in the Vikings earning four trips to the playoffs, two NFC North titles, and one appearance in the 2017 NFC Championship.

Minnesota’s current general manager hasn’t been able to help the team reach their ultimate goal yet. But he’s been able to provide them with the pieces to remain competitive almost every season since he got the job in 2012.

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman to be showcased in upcoming TV show?

On Monday, NBC Sports Boston’s Michael Holley revealed that former Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff is currently producing a TV show that gives outsiders an inside view into what life is like as an NFL general manager.

Holley shared that Dimitroff has interviewed 15 general managers around the league for the show, including Howie Roseman of the Philadelphia Eagles, Jason Licht of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Mickey Loomis of the New Orleans Saints, and Brett Veach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

That leaves nine unknown general managers who will also be featured in the show. Could Spielman be among the other nine?

Well, Dimitroff and the current Vikings general manager actually have a history together. In 1995 and 1996, both worked in the scouting department for the Detroit Lions. Dimitroff was an area scout for the Lions, while Spielman was a college and pro scout for the organization.

Given their history, one might assume that Minnesota’s longtime general manager might be among those who will be showcased on Dimitroff’s TV show.

At the same time, Spielman hasn’t ever really been someone to put himself in the public eye unless necessary. So if his old co-worker from Detroit actually did give Spielman a call to do the show, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Vikings general manager politely declined to continue keeping his public profile as low as possible.

Hopefully though, Spielman did say yes if Dimitroff asked him to participate. It would be very intriguing to find out what exactly takes place in the life of the guy who is in charge of constructing Minnesota’s roster each year.
