I can almost see the weekend from here

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning and hello Friday!
We’re in full off-season form with QB debates, mock drafts, smoker tips and crockpot recipes the rage on the daily thread. My weekend is going to consistent of work, readying the taxes and getting the yard cleaned up, what are your plans for this weekend?

Around the DN since our last thread:
From Chris and worth repeating, the Vikings foundation sent Super Bowl confetti to Eagles fans who donated to the Vikings foundation, classy move.

Vikings news from other sources:
Matthew Coller at 1500espn wonders what’s next for Laquon Treadwell, ten names to know as we enter draft season, he also suggests FA Guard Josh Sitton should be a top free agent target for the Vikings and how current Vikings under the age of 25 will impact free agency.

Over at
They have best of the linebackers in 2017, Wobby goes one on one with new OC John DeFilippo, and Sam Bradford absolutely wants to play in 2018, as reported by Tom Pelissero.

They have some free agency fun with Teddy going to the Cardinals and the Vikings signing Kirk Cousins.

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 and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
