We’re in full off-season form with QB debates, mock drafts, smoker tips and crockpot recipes the rage on the daily thread. Only a few more days and we won’t have the “who will the Vikings QB debate going to be this year” instead we can have the “why did they pick that guy debate.” I’m ready for the draft and the start of OTA’s but this weekend I’m removing and installing more fencing to replace hurricane damage, what are your plans this weekend?

Around the DN since our last thread:

Wludford makes his Case for Keenum to return as the Vikings QB, clear your mind and give his article a read.
The Vikings had three exclusive rights free agents, give Chris’s article a read to find out who was retained, hint the long snapper debate is finally over.
Have some money burning a hole in your pocket? Head to Vegas and drop some coin on who the Vikings next QB will be per Chris, Kirk Cousins is the favorite.
Never to early to talk about compensatory picks for next year, Chris writes the Vikings could be in line for a few potentially high picks.
MarkSP18 gives us two potential offseason plans after the completion of the combine, if you’re a draft or cap nut give his article a read.

Vikings news from other sources:

Over at 1500espn they have an article on why the Vikings should try and re-sign McKinnon and digging deeper into Todd McShay’s first post combine mock draft.
At Vikings.com the lunchbreak series, today the Vikings could boost their depth at guard and former OSU teammates describe Pat Elflein’s impact.

NFL news from other sources:

At NFL.com they have the top 101 free agents for this year, guess who is number one? There’s more there, I’m going to save it for the weekend thread.

Media selection: Prince, Let’s Go Crazy

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!
