The Vikings have announced that George Paton has been promoted to Assistant General Manager of the Club.

Over the past couple of weeks, the St. Louis Rams had courted Paton to serve as the Rams new General Manager.  Paton decided late Friday that he wanted to remain with the Vikings organization.

The promotion of Paton follows the recent promotion of Rick Spielman to his new role as General Manager, and both moves add stability to the Vikings front office as the team approaches an important offseason.

“George has been an integral part of our personnel department since he arrived in 2007,” Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said on Saturday.  “His work ethic, leadership , professionalism and keen eye for identifying talented football players will continue to be a major asset for our organization as we take on the challenges of competing in the NFC North and winning the Super Bowl.”
