Vikings sign 10 scouts

The Vikings officially re-signed nine scouts and added another Monday morning, the team announced.

Paul Wiggin, Jeff Robinson, Frank Acevedo and Ryan Monnens are listed as pro scouts, while Frank Gilliam, Conrad Cardano, Kevin McCabe, Mike Sholiton, Jamaal Stephenson and Paul Roell are titled as regional scouts.

Roell just joined the Vikings after 15 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts as an area scout, most recently based in Kansas City, MO.

The only scout not retained was John Fitzpatrick.

The structure now has Rick Spielman as the vice president of player personnel, and Scott Studwell as director of college scouting.

Robinson, formerly the director of pro personnel, and Wiggin, formerly the senior consultant-pro personnel, are now listed as pro scouts, along with Acevedo and Monnens.

Everyone else retained the same titles.

Spielman did not make himself available for comment.

I wouldn't mind being the Caribbean scout for the Vikings. I could scope out talent on the beach. For the right price of course.

Vikings: Former Colts scout joins revised department

Last update: June 05, 2006 – 7:56 PM

Paul Roell, who spent the past 15 seasons as a scout for the Indianapolis Colts, has replaced John Fitzpatrick as a Vikings regional scout, the team revealed Monday as part of an announcement regarding its restructured scouting department.

Meanwhile, the Vikings re-signed their other nine scouts, whose contracts expired June 1. Team officials, including Rick Spielman, who heads the scouting department as the new vice president of player personnel, and Scott Studwell, the team's director of college scouting, declined comment.

Paul Wiggin and Jeff Robinson were retained and given different titles. Wiggin, the former senior consultant-pro personnel, and Robinson, the former director of pro personnel, are now listed as pro scouts.

Also re-signed were Frank Acevedo and Ryan Monnens as pro scouts, and Frank Gilliam, Conrad Cardano, Kevin McCabe, Mike Sholiton and Jamaal Stephenson as regional scouts.

Jerry Reichow, the former Vikings player who has been part of the team's scouting department the past 40 years, is considering retirement. For the time being, he is still listed as a national scout.
