Minnesota Vikings News And Links, 11/12

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

With another week of National Football League action completely in the books, let's see what we've got going on for today on the Minnesota Vikings front.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Our punter, Jeff Locke, got a pretty good deal from quarterback Josh Freeman for his jersey number.

-CCNorsemen tells us why he doesn't think Freeman will. . .or should. . .see the field again this season.

-The Vikings have dropped one spot in the race for the top draft pick in 2014.

From some other outposts around the internet. . .

-After putting together quite the M*A*S*H unit on Thursday night, the Vikings are getting a little healthier.

-Wide receiver Jerome Simpson expects to play on Sunday, despite his arrest over the weekend.

-It looks like Minnesota's opponent this weekend, the Seattle Seahawks, will be welcoming back an old friend.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, folks. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, and keep the bad language to a minimum/use the spoiler tags if you feel you absolutely must curse.

Here's your ambient music selection of the day.


With that, the bar is open and the beer light is on for this Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have more for you going forward.
