Vikings' coach Frazier, GM Spielman lousy judges of talent - Minnesota cuts bum Jefferson
Well the Vikings dumped another bum in cornerback A.J. Jefferson this afternoon. Even though they only shipped a 6th or 7th round pick to the Cardinals for him last year, you would have thought the Vikings had landed a future All-Pro after hearing head coach Leslie Frazier heap praise on Jefferson after the acquisition.
Frazier was the one who wanted to sign washed-up has-been Donovan McNabb to play quarterback two years ago, and Spielman has swung and missed on a number of draft picks in the last few years (Josh Robinson, Tyrell Johnson, Christian Ponder, Mistral Raymond, Marcus McCauley, among others) so it's not surprising that they wasted a draft pick on a player like Jefferson. Jefferson contributed nothing during his time with the team.
Frazier might be a good coach, and Spielman might be the type of that write up a great scouting report, but when it comes time to select a talented player, neither has shown that they have much of a knack for it.
If they did the Vikings record would be a lot better than 2-8-1.
