Merry Tuesday everyone! Well, looks like March is coming in like a lamb, hopefully we'll get a few feet of snow on our way out.

Sorry this is a little late, work/life got in the way this morning.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris talked about U.S. Bank Stadium with Yahoo! Sports Radio.

The Vikings are still weighing their options at offensive tackle, per Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com:

Wobby opened the Monday Morning Mailbag, he looks at whether Coach Zimmer could lure George Iloka to Minnesota.

Eric Smith tells us why Zimmer looks for defensive ends with long arms.

Here are 10 telling tweets from the final day of the combine, from Chris Corso.

Lindsey Young considers the benefits from moving indoors.

Over at the Strib, they look at how judging NFL-ready O linemen is more complex in the spread era.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags 
-No pictures that could potentially get someone fired or in serious trouble at their place of employment
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the blood sausage.
