It’s Friday!

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

It’s Friday and we’re inching closer to the weekend and the draft! I know some of you are following the Masters tournament today and this weekend, I’ll provide links and tweets as I find them. I have work at home to take care of this weekend and it’s time to start cutting the lawn every week or face the derision of my neighbors, what are you doing this weekend?

Around the DN since our last thread:

Courtesy of Chris, Ted and Eric you have your very own Vikings free agency tracker on the front page, every time I think about not including this in the mythical words up here the Vikings sign someone else.

Chris posted Day 11 of the DN mock draft, Miami you’re on the clock.

The Vikings announced the signing of WR Tavarres King per J-Dog, not the King I was hoping the Vikings would sign.

Chris posted his most recent mock draft, Chris 3.0

Skelly10 bring us the news that the the Minneapolis Miracle sideline video was nominated for a Webby Award.

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the league:

From the Vikings homepage they have five things to know about new Vikings WR Tavarres King.

From their lunch break series, Harrison Smith was voted the top Vikings draft pick of the last 10 years, also from their lunch break series ESPN predicts elements of the Vikings 2018 offense under new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo.

From NFL.com Punter Marquette King agreed to a three year deal with the Broncos.

We come to today’s media selection: The Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin

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!
