Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 7/3

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

This is going to be the last day of the work week for a lot of folks, but if you want to start wasting time now. . .well, we're here for you.

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

-Our friends from Cincy Jungle had a debate about rookie quarterbacks. (SPOILER: They all came to the correct conclusion.)

-Over the Cap had their look at the best and worst contracts on the Minnesota Vikings' payroll.

-Ted took a look at the construction of the new stadium meeting all the hiring goals that were set for it. We have some flashbacks to the dark days before the stadium bill was passed in the comments as well, so enjoy that.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-Jamarca Sanford is another member of the Vikings with something to prove in camp.

-Here's an interview with guard Brandon Fusco.

-Vikings Territory takes a look at rookie running back Jerick McKinnon.

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

Another song from another summer blockbuster for your listening pleasure today.

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