Vikings interview Eagles executive Catherine Raiche to be GM

The Vikings are making rapid progress in their search for a general manager. Eagles exec Catherine Raiche is one of the potential candidates. 

Could the Minnesota Vikings make history this offseason, as we may see? Shortly after the team’s 2021 campaign came to a close, Minnesota’s front office wasted little time in firing both head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman.

When it comes to the GM, one intriguing name has definitely popped up and that’s Catherine Raiche. Mike Garafolo of the NFL claims that Raiche is set to interview with Vikings officials in the near future.

Catherine Raiche, a Minnesota Vikings employee, could make NFL History

Raiche currently serves as Philadelphia’s Vice President of Football Operations, a position she’s held since last year. Raiche has experience in the XFL and CFL as Garofolo noted and she’s quickly making a name for herself in the NFL too. So much in fact, the Vikings are ready to see if she’s ready to make the leap to GM.

In addition to Raiche, Minnesota is also planning to interview fellow Philadelphia exec Brandon Brown, who is the Eagles’ Director of Player Personnel. Tom Pelissero, Minnesota has also requested to interview Patriots exec Eliot Wolf, plus Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Glenn Cook of the Cleveland Browns.

It is clear that the Vikings are eager to start things and make a decision for their next general manager as soon as possible. The front office has many options. Are they going to go with Raiche? Minnesota could follow that path if she fails to impress in her interview.
