Good morning! I realize most of you will be off spending time with your family, cooking delicious meat on the grill or doing absolutely nothing but it’s Monday and let’s roll out the open thread. It’s the doldrums of the NFL season right now but the combine is rapidly approaching.
Around the DN since our last thread:
Luft Krigare takes a look at Rick Spielman’s draft record, lots of good information there, give it a read.
The Vikings have added former Raiders OC Todd Downing to the the staff with the title of “Senior Offensive Assistant,” Welcome Aboard.
Teddy’s contract tolling won’t be an issue per Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, no one is sure what that means though.
Vikings season ticket holders were notified that season ticket prices will be going up this year.
Vikings news from other sources:
At 1500espn.com they have a list of intriguing players that may get cut that are a potential fit for the Vikings.

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 venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
