Home Of Ex-Vikings GM Heavily Damaged By Hurricane Ian
The former general manager of the Minnesota Vikings revealed last week that his home was ripped apart by Hurricane Ian.
Rick Spielman was the general manager of the Minnesota Vikings for 10 years, after first joining the Purple and Gold as vice president of player personnel back in 2006. He was promoted to general manager in 2012 and remained in that position until he was let go in January of 2022.
While he lived here in Minnesota, he lived in a pretty nice home in Eden Prairie. But, it's his current home in Florida that made news here in the Bold North last week. In an interview with KFAN, Speilman mentioned that his home in Florida sustained a direct hit when Hurricane Ian ravage the Sunshine State last September.

BringMeTheNews reported that Spielman said he and his family have just recently been able to return to the heavily-damaged home, after having been displaced for nearly 2-and-a-half months. Spielman recounted that he lost 'everything on the lower level,' including several cars.
Now, before moving to Florida, Spielman had to sell his home here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. According to a Realtor.com listing, the former Spielman home was located at 10240 Summer Place in Eden Prairie, and it was pretty nice!
Spielman bought the home, which was originally built in 1987, for $600,000 back in 2006. It has 5,622 square feet of living space, including five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, three separate fireplaces, as well as an attached three-car garage. Realtor.com says it sold for $980,000 in April of 2022.
