Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 4/9

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Welcome to Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen. Let's get right to it.

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

-CCNorseman brought you another installment of his "From Boom To Bust" series, this time taking a look at which quarterbacks in this year's draft class he sees as having the least "bust" potential.

-He also took the time to congratulate the winner of this year's March Madness pool.

-Ted made the case for another potential Minnesota Vikings' draft choice, this time looking at linebacker C.J. Mosley.

-The Vikings made another minor signing yesterday, adding wide receiver Lestar Jean to the mix.

From some other sites around the internet. . .

-In non-football news, WWE fans were shocked just hours ago by the news of the passing of The Ultimate Warrior. He had been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame on Saturday, and was just in the ring on Monday night doing a promo. Our friends at Cageside Seats have all the latest.

-Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be making a two-day visit to Winter Park on 14 and 15 April.

-Former Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson is "grateful" that he was arrested twice this past season. If he can turn his life around, good for him.

-ESPN's Ben Goessling says it might be more important to take a look at how Johnny Manziel might potentially fit into Norv Turner's offense than what head coach Mike Zimmer thinks of him.

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.

Here's your musical selection for 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, and we'll be back with more later!
