Good Morning! I hope your weekend is going great, I spent almost no time here yesterday since I was tearing fence down, the best part was trying to the concreted poles out of the ground, some knucklehead decided it would be a great idea to cement the poles in...well done Rob. Bonus, I cut the pipe for my sprinkler system so I get another outside job to do, I have more to finish on the fence this morning but hope to be done in time to take the mrs out for dinner Saturday.

Around the DN since our last thread:
Saxyprince drops Climbing the Pocket: Episode 70 “Who said That.”
Wludford brings us the news that the Vikings have not made a decision about Nick Easton yet, and Wludford gives us the top offensive line free agents the Vikings could sign to see improvement in the Oline.
Chris lets us know that another team drops out of the free agent QB chase but another is added.

Vikings news from other sources:
At from their lunch break series, the Vikings could boost their guard depth during the offseason. GM Rick Spielman demonstrated the Vikings new high tech draft board, and they highlight Texas tackle Connor Williams.

NFL news:
From the Browns have traded for Tyrod Taylor and Damarious Randall, the Bucs have signed WR Mike Evans to a five year extension, the Bengals will not pick up Adam Jones option, and CB Richard Sherman was released by the Seahawks.

I’m sure there will be more news during the weekend, when I see it I’ll post in the comments.

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!
