INDIANAPOLIS Like the rest of the organization, Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman was blindsided recently by the news that defensive end Kenechi Udeze had been diagnosed with a form of leukemia.

From a strictly football standpoint, though, Spielman said it didn't force a major reshuffling of the team's offseason plan.

Defensive end might be a higher priority now than it was a few weeks ago, but Spielman said the Vikings' philosophy is to aggressively scout every position, regardless of need.

"That's why you try to be as thorough as you can when you're going through the process," he said. "You never know what happens. We always try to take the approach that every position's a need and do the same amount of work that you do on a position that maybe seems like more of a need. Because you just don't know."

Like coach Brad Childress, Spielman extended his thoughts and prayers to Udeze, who is undergoing chemotherapy treatments at Fairview Southdale Hospital and whose real-life battle obviously outweighs any football concerns.

With Udeze expected to miss at least this season, though, Spielman acknowledged that defensive end is a top offseason priority.
