Merry Monday, everyone!
We’re finally here, it’s opening week of training camp, and the time of year when we finally get to see real football things happening.
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Saxyprince looked at the linebacker depth chart.
The Vikings signed DT Jarrod “Chunky” Clements.
Moritz Bohringer was interviewed by a German sports site.
Chris has another Vikings 53 man roster prediction.
As you likely know, training camp opened on Saturday. Chris has a breakdown of how coverage will be handled here at the DN.
Wludford looks at potential contenders for Mr. Mankato this year.
Vikings news from other sources:
From the Pioneer Press, Coach Zimmer said that Teddy Bridgewater is likely to start the season on the PUP.
News from around the rest of the NFL:
We come to our media selection.
Well, we survived the off-season, and training camp is here. As Barry White said, we finally made it.
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 vulgar language to a minimum, using spoiler tags if you must
-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 head cheese.
