Merry Tuesday, DN faithful. Thanks to J-Dog for posting the 2nd open thread yesterday. There are quite a few new fans who've popped up in the comments, so welcome to all of you, along with our long-time regulars.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Mark posted Mock Draft 3.7.16.
Chris put together a Minnesota Vikings 2016 Free Agency Tracker.
Coach Zimmer and the Vikings are reportedly (still) interested in George Iloka.
Phil Loadholt agreed to a restructured deal to stay in Minnesota.
Ted told us that the Vikings are 'surging'for Kelechi Osemele. Ted, along with everybody else, isn't sure what surging is, but I assume it means we're very interested.
Vikings news from elsewhere:
Over at Vikings.com, Wobby posted the Monday Morning Mailbag.
The Strib takes a quick look at the Vikings with free agency unofficially underway.
Around the rest of the NFL:
The Eagles continue their fire sale, as they reportedly will trade DeMarco Murray to the Titans, per NFL.com.
NFL.com also reported that the Texans are a legitimate contender for Brock Osweiler. I'd be very shocked if Denver doesn't re-sign him.
The Twins blanked the Orioles, 3-0. May looked rock solid, and Plouffe contributed an RBI double.
With that, we come to today's media selection. I'll post this one again, as it didn't want to work last week when I tried.
