Well, here it is, ladies and gentlemen. NFL free agency is set to get underway in about an hour or so (3 PM Central time), and nobody has any idea what, exactly, the Minnesota Vikings are going to be doing once the gun goes off.
Last year, the team was not a huge player in free agency, as Rick Spielman and company took a couple of fliers on players and generally held back until the NFL Draft. This year, with the trade of Percy Harvin, will the team be a bigger factor in the free agent ranks than they were in 2012?
News out of Winter Park has been pretty much non-existent since the "legal tampering" period started, but that's become the norm more often than not for the Vikings these days.
Whatever news comes out of free agency, whether it's related to the Vikings or to any other team that makes a deal that catches your eye, feel free to discuss all of today's happenings right here. And if anything does come out regarding our favorite football team, you can be sure that we'll have it for you straight away.
The Vikings are also saying that General Manager Rick Spielman will be addressing the media at 3:30 PM Central time, and that the press conference will be carried at Vikings.com.
Enjoy today, folks. . .regardless of what comes out of it for the Vikings.
