The Minnesota Vikings have picked Kwesi Adofo-Mensah to be their new general manager. What are some tough decisions he’ll have to make right away?

There’s a ton of excitement around the Minnesota Vikings as they have just officially named Kwesi Adofo-Mensah their new general manager.

Adofo-Mensah has a unique background and while he has plenty of experience in a front office, he also brings an analytical approach. He’s also said to be a great person to be around, works great with others, and is very intelligent with a great sense of humor.

That approach will be a nice change of pace to what was described as a pretty cold climate in Minnesota that was controlled with fear. While it is all warm and fuzzies right now as we welcome K.A.M. to town, he can’t sit on his laurels too long.

The Vikings are an attractive landing spot with top-notch facilities and a roster that isn’t far from being competitive. However, there are a handful of very tough decisions that Adofo-Mensah will need to make to get this team back into contention.

What are some of those issues that he’ll be facing in his first week in charge?
