MINNEAPOLIS -- With the sale of the Minnesota Vikings still pending but nearing probable completion, there are strong indications Arizona businessman Reggie Fowler is relinquishing his role as lead investor.

Zygmunt Wilf, a New Jersey real estate developer initially identified as one of Fowler's four limited partners, is apparently in the process of taking over as general partner to ensure the deal goes through.

"It just sounds most likely that they're going to go ahead and buy it and rearrange the thing," said Glen Taylor, owner of the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves and an unsuccessful bidder for the Vikings. "Reggie's going to move down, and another guy is going to move up."

Wilf made the latest of several visits to the Twin Cities earlier this week to meet officials about a new stadium north of Minneapolis.

"I believe that Zyggi Wilf is preparing to proceed here," said Anoka County commissioner Dan Erhart, who has been responsible for arranging the meetings. "Clearly, he was the person speaking for the group."
