NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

We’re mostly through the week with the splash free agency period probably over for the Vikings, although they still could be looking for some moar oline depth (see below) or that cagey veteran player to fill a rotational spot. Just a quick word about the trolls that pop up like yesterday, do us all a favor and don’t play with them, just flag their nonsense and drop me an email if I’m not around, I promise to handle it. Bring on the weekend, draft and let’s start OTA’s!

Around the DN since our last thread:

Courtesy of Chris, Eric and Ted you have your very own Vikings free agency tracker on the front page.

From Chris the Vikings have signed Josiah Price and Nick Dooley, and released Shaan Washington, Welcome Aboard!

Also from Chris the Oakland Raiders sign linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, good luck to you unless you play the Vikings.

Ted gives us the best and worst moves from the Vikings thus far in free agency.

Finally from Chris the Vikings have signed OL Tom Compton, and new Vikings offensive lineman Tom Compton has a bit role in a movie I’ve never seen.

Vikings news from other sources:

From the Vikings homepage, they have five things to know about OL Tom Compton.

Today the lunch break series brings us the news that the Vikings are fourth in the offseason power rankings.

Pete Berecich joined Wobby and broke down some film highlighting new Vikings QB Kirk Cousins smarts, strength and vision.

At ESPN they have an article about the acquisition of Kirk Cousins and Sheldon Richardson entitled Planes, steaks and bad cell reception: How the Vikings crushed free agency. Yes, I know it’s the four letter network, but the writer of this article is pretty good.

We come to today’s media selection: Nirvana, Smells Like Team Spirit

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!
