Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 6/18

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Camel!

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

-Ted took a look at the running back battle. . .such as it is. . .that the Minnesota Vikings will have in camp this year.

-A couple of prominent Vikings are being held out of team drills at this week's mini-camp.

From some other sources across the internet. . .

-Stop me if you've heard this one, but the Vikings' starting quarterback job is officially up for grabs.

-With Kevin Williams officially out of the picture, the team is hoping that Sharrif Floyd can step up at the defensive tackle position in 2014.

-Norv Turner had some positive things to say about Christian Ponder after yesterday's practice, which undoubtedly means that he's now completely senile, am I right folks?

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've always been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, keep the language relatively work-safe (using spoiler tags if necessary), and keep the GIFs relatively work-safe.

For today's clip, another sitcom that would likely never make it onto the air today.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
