It's not often that a General Manager joins the broadcast booth, but during the second half of tonight's preseason game against the Tennessee Titans, Vikings fans will enjoy additional analysis from General Manager Rick Spielman.
By Saturday, the Vikings must trim the roster from 75 to 53 players. The decisions can be very difficult to make as some of the final players could ultimately be contributors on special teams or possibly even have to step in during the season if the unfortunate injury bug hits the team.
Being able to hear directly from Spielman as these final roster spots are fought for on the field, makes what can be a dull second half into a rather interesting competition.
Tonight's game can be seen locally on KARE 11 (NBC) and heard on KFAN 100.3 FM. Throughout the Upper Midwest, the game can be heard on the Vikings Radio Network and will appear on Vikings regional TV affiliates. Kickoff is at 7 pm.
