General manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has done some good things for the Minnesota Vikings in his second season but he has also made some decisions that haven't worked out.

Making decisions in the front office of an NFL franchise is an extremely challenging task. Attempting to do what is best for the team while minimizing the risk of collapse is a tough task for anyone, including Minnesota Vikings GM Kwesi Adofo-Mensah.

As a first-time general manager, he is in a tough spot. Making the wrong call at the wrong time could set the franchise back for multiple years and the GM's job on the line. Hitting a home run means job stability and a good product on the field.

Adofo-Mensah has made some great calls in his second year, including moving on from expensive veterans like Adam Thielen, Eric Kendricks, and Dalvin Cook and bringing in talented rookies like Jordan Addison and Ivan Pace Jr.

However, not every decision Kwesi Adofo-Mensah made was a good one. If given the opportunity, the GM would likely want to take the Minnesota Vikings franchise in a different direction. Here are five of the worst decisions made in Adofo-Mensah's second year with the team.
