Minnesota Vikings: What's Goin' On?

Here's what's happened so far for the Beloved Purple:

S Madieu Williams - Agreed to terms on a 6-year, $33 million contract.  The contract contains just under $13 million in guaranteed money.

FB Thomas Tapeh - Agreed to a 5-year deal worth $6 million total, with approximately $1 million guaranteed.

Here's what's happening right now:

WR Bernard Berrian is in Minneapolis right now.  According to the folks at Access Vikings, he'll continue meeting with the Vikings tomorrow, and the Vikings hope to have him signed by tomorrow afternoon.

DE Justin Smith is in the process of meeting with the San Francisco 49ers on the left coast.  He's scheduled to meet with the Vikings tomorrow. . .whether or not he gets out of the Bay Area without a contract remains to be seen.

Here's what's going to be happening tomorrow:

Hell, I don't know.  Neither does anyone else, quite frankly.  But I DO know that Mrs. Gonzo and I are celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary tomorrow, so if a story breaks and I don't have it here right away, don't freak out or anything.  But hey, if anything DOES come up, don't be afraid to throw a diary into the diaries section to announce it to the world and/or discuss it with everyone.

Also, today has been the biggest day in terms of hits in the history of this humble little website, with the total number for today currently sitting at 1,207 for the day.  To show you how far this site has come, in February '07. . .for the entire month, mind you. . .this site got 3,147 hits.  This WEEK, we've received 4,647 hits.  So thanks to all of you out there for making The Daily Norseman a part of your regular Vikings reading regimen.  I do truly appreciate it, and I hope you guys have as much fun reading what's put on this site as I do writing it.

Have a good Saturday, folks, and I'll see you all here sometime Sunday.  Over the course of the upcoming week, we'll have a chance to "get to know" the newest members of the Beloved Purple, and get some impressions of them from the guys that blog their former teams here at SBNation.  Until then, SKOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL VIKINGS!!!!
