It's the peak of the week, and we're another day into free agency.
Here's the off-season schedule for the next month or so:
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Despite previous rumors to the contraray, Rhett Ellison isreturning to Minnesota after all.
Chris is keeping a Vikings 2016 Free Agency Tracker.
Ted posted the DN Mailbag, Ides of March Edition.
Ted shared the story of Mike Wallace signing with the Ravens, and taking a shot at our quarterback on his way out. Don't let the doorknob hit you on the way out the door, Mike..... or let it hit you, I don't care.
Terence Newman re-signed with the Vikings. This is an excellent signing, in my opinion. Newman provides solid depth, veteran leadership, and I hope even a possible upgrade at the safety position opposite Harrison Smith.
Vikings news from elsewhere:
From PFF, Chris Collinsworth released his first mock draft, and he has Minnesota taking.......(You'll have to read it to find out. If I have to suffer, so do you).
From The Big Lead, Mike Wallace rips Teddy Bridgewater on his way out of Minnesota. Normally, I'd wish a player well, but this is a pretty classless quote from a guy who hasn't produced a 1,000 yard season since 2011.
Here's the quote:
When this process started, I knew that I wasn’t going back to Minnesota. I was like, "I need a good quarterback." I need a quarterback who I know is proven and can get things done.
Around the rest of the NFL:
NFL.com listed the top ten free agents available.

and a funny story to go with that song
