Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 3/19

USA TODAY Sports

Are we still doing the camel thing? Seriously?

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

-Kyle takes a look at which team-building method is better. . .trying to create a balanced team, or to completely load up on one side of the ball.

-I thought that people were making too much of Teddy Bridgewater's pro day. Then people who obviously work incognito in NFL front offices somewhere said I didn't know what I was talking about. Meh, take their word for it, I guess. They're infallible, after all.

-Defensive tackle Henry Melton, who had gotten a lot of interest from the Minnesota Vikings, instead signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-Over at Vikings Territory, Arif has done his usual ridiculously great job of breaking down Everson Griffen's play.

-ESPN looks at the Vikings' need to shore up the running back position behind Adrian Peterson.

-1500 ESPN looks at how legitimate the possibilty of Jared Allen's retirement is.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as always, ladies and gentlemen. No politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, keep the language relatively clean, and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.

For your video selection today, an example of just how terrible Teddy Bridgewater is and why the Vikings should in no way, shape, or form show even so much as peripheral interest in drafting the guy.

Hope the sarcasm came through okay in the intro there.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, everybody. Have a good rest of your day, and we'll have more for you if any news comes down. If folks decide that's okay, that is.
