Vikings News And Notes: February 17th

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Happy President's Day

Federal holiday means I get to sleep in due to my day off, so sorry this is late.  Since we last had an open thread:

The mock draft database is up and running.

Rick Spielman might have made an enemy or two on Valentine's Day.

In kind of a surprise move, John Carlson won't retire.

Grabbing a QB with the 8th pick might not be the best move.

We looked at which Vikings free agents the team should bring back.

Rick Spielman leaves no stone unturned to get inside your noggin.

From elsewhere around the web:

Darren Sharper.  Never saw this coming, to be honest.

Ben Goessling talks about whether or not to franchise Jared Allen

Interesting story on whether or not the development of land near the new stadium should be a hotel or new apartments/lofts/condos.

Judd Zulgad thinks the Vikings should release Christian Ponder.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open.  Open thread rules remain the same, and we'll send you out with some classic Mellencamp:


Happy President's Day!
