Well kids, here we are. Where are we? I dunno, it’s Tuesday

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Well, the underwear olympics are over & we just have to wait a few weeks until the draft.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Ted looks at the cost of trading back into round one.

Ted shared a report that Patterson’s salary is expected to be over $4 million a year.

Chad Greenway is going to announce his retirement on Tuesday, per Chris. From the bottom of my heart, I love Chad Greenway. He’s one of my favorite players in Vikes history, and there are a lot of reasons for that, for what he did both on & off the field. The NFL, and the world in general, could use more people like him. I wish nothing but the best to Chad and his family as they move into the next chapter of their lives, may God continue to bless them.

The Vikings players reacted to Chad’s retirement, also from Chris.

Vikings news from other sources:

Ben Goessling at ESPN says the Vikings should look at Reiley Reiff and Ricky Wagner in free agency. I couldn’t agree more.

From Vikings.com:

Chad Greenway is ending his career his way.

Eric Smith takes a look at two position groups from the combine, the safeties and the cornerbacks.

Around the rest of the NFL:

From NFL.com, the Patriots could reportedly get a team-friendly discount from Adrian Peterson.

The Cowboys are in no hurry to trade or release Tony Romo just yet.

We come to today’s media selection.

Okay, it’s hard to find something you all haven’t seen. I’ll give it a try, anyone remember Orbit & Larry? Sorry about the poor audio/video, but this s*** is funny. I GOT THE ICE IN ME!

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

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-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 get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-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 menudo.
