PLAYERS: Zygi Wilf
TEAMS: Minnesota Vikings
The push for a new stadium in Minnesota - outlined Thursday in a formal announcement of a $975 million plan among the Vikings , the city of Minneapolis, the state and Gov. Mark Dayton to build the team's new home in Minneapolis - hasn't stopped Vikings ownership from contributing to recent football operations. Team President Mark Wilf said he was in Indianapolis for the NFL scouting combine, which began last week and ended Tuesday. The Vikings have up to 10 draft picks and at least $10 million in salary cap space entering free agency on March 13. Mark Wilf and owner Zygi WIlf are involved in crafting the team's long-term vision for the roster, a project spearheaded by newly appointed general manager Rick Spielman. "We have a lot of picks," said Wilf from Dayton's office in St. Paul after the stadium news conference. "We're going to get a lot better."
