Happy Thirsty Thorsday, everyone! The first full day of the 2016 NFL league year is upon us. Please try to be friendly to the new folks who come around, we want to be welcoming to everyone.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
We missed out on George Iloka.
The Vikings were to sign LB Travis Lewis.
Eric told us why we should like Alex Boone, and he's right!
We also brought back guard/tackle Mike Harris.
We were also to sign LB Emmanuel Lamur.
Chris broke the bad news that we won't be bringing back TE Rhett Ellison (maybe).
Ted tells us that the Vikings O-line got better, and we might not be done.

Milone gave up only one hit, but it was a homer. Park, Nunez, and Mauer continued to contribute on offense, but the Twins fell to the Phillies, 4-2 and evened their record at 4 and 4 in early spring training action.
