- Vikings GM Rick Spielman discussed their thinking when it came to the Mike Wallace trade with Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune.“We had to take on the contract, which plays a part in it,” Spielman said.“But we felt, from a draft compensation standpoint, we didn’t lose any picks. We had two fifth-round picks because of the move we made with Buffalo [the Matt Cassel trade], so that’s why you have to keep as many draft picks as possible, and even on draft day, because that gives you the ability to move around on draft day. It gives you the ability to do the move we were able to get accomplished.”
