Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 2/17

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Tuesday, everybody! Some of you are just getting back into work after a long weekend. . .feel free to use the Open Thread to help yourself ease into things a little bit.

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

-For Presidents Day, we took a look back at the history of presidential names in Minnesota Vikings' history. (And we got an opportunity to learn that when we say "no political discussion," we kind of sort of mean it.)

-At least one member of the Cleveland Browns wishes that their management had drafted Teddy Bridgewater last season. I'm sure that, before too much longer, there will be more players on more teams wishing the same thing.

-Kyle looks at the draft day accomplishments of one Rick Spielman.

-Mike Mayock had a big ol' conference call to talk about draft prospects yesterday. The topic of the Vikings came up, albeit briefly.

From some other sites around the internet. . .

-Tight end Kyle Rudolph would like to stay healthy in 2015. What a coincidence. . .I'd like Kyle Rudolph to stay healthy in 2015, too.

-When it comes to making trades, it's pretty clear that Minnesota sports teams think that Cleveland rocks.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no religion, no politics, no feeding of the trolls, keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the pictures work-safe and appropriately-sized.

Now that it's in my head because I mentioned it in the links up there, let's use this as today's musical entertainment.

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