Monday Open Thread: April 3, 2017

Another day of wisdom & insight here at the DN, or maybe it’s BS & speculation, one of those.

Happy Monday, everyone!

It’s another beautiful April day here in ND. Man, I love spring/summer. The vegetation is starting to get a tinge of green.....so we’ll probably get two feet of snow next week.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

The Vikings signed a few players on Friday, they also signed their presumable backup QB in Case Keenum, per Chris.

Chris thinks the Vikes have figured out a way to get Teddy back on the field (written on April Fool’s Day).

Chris posted version 1 of his Vikings mock draft.

SB Nation posted a mock draft for SB Nation NFL writers.

Chris gave us the most updated info on the Vike’s salary cap.

Adrian Peterson is going to visit the New England Patriots.

Vikings news from other sources:

From the Strib, the Vikings have set their goal to play in their hometown Super Bowl this season. I like it, if you don’t aim high, you’ll hit low.

From Vikings.com, Lindsey Young has a prospect profile on Alabama tackle, Cam Robinson.

Around the NFL:

NFL.com thinks AD and the Patriots could be a fit.

Tim Hightower signed with the 49ers, who looks like he will battle DuJuan Harris for the spot behind Carlos Hyde.

We come to today’s media selection.

I got nothing, so I picked a song with April in it. Here you go.

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 lengua.
