NFL: Preseason-San Diego Chargers at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

Gone Fishin is traveling for work so you get me again for the fifth consecutive day. I’m not a Monday person like GF is but I hope your Monday was great. We’re finally getting closer to the draft, and the Vikings have reported to their new facility for offseason workouts. Shoutout to Ted for helping me find the poll option, thanks Ted!

Around the DN since our last daily thread:

Eric brings us the news that Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks signed an extension yesterday, more on that below.

Chris posted day 21 of the Daily Norseman Mock Draft, Cincinnati you’re on the clock!

A Fanpost created by Lansing_2009 who’s doing an SB Nation site mock draft by site, the Daily Norseman is currently on the clock, get over there and vote.

Vikings news from other sources and news around the league:

At Vikings.com Wobby sat down with newly extended Vikings LB Eric Kendricks.

Wobby also opened his Monday morning mailbag and answered reader questions.

From their lunch break series, NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein takes a look at this year’s offensive line class.

Want a refresher on who’s currently on the Vikings roster, take a look here it’s alphabetical.

From NFL.com the NFL and NFLPA have agreed to prohibit the use of 10 helmet models after laboratory study, (study parameters were not released for us geeks who would want to read the study for themselves).

We come to today’s media selection: Post game interview with Key & Peele

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!
