Hope your weekend is off to a great start, even though the draft is still two weeks away with the Adam Thielen contract extension we have something new to talk about that is Vikings related. No less importantly the Game of Thrones final season will air Sunday night, if you’ve been watching Game of Thrones and commenting in the Open Threads or the Fanposts I did for season seven you’re in luck, the artistformerlyknownasfil will be posting a Fanpost Monday morning, I’ll get it moved to the front page as soon as I see it. Meanwhile we’ll catch up on our NFC North opponents and then carry on with our news and links thread full of beer recommendations, nap strategies, crock pot and smoker recipes. Fire up the mock drafts and drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and try a beer from Remedy Brewing Company.

We come to today’s media selection: Game of Thrones | Season 8 | Official Trailer (HBO)
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 & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waiter, try not to annoy him and and as always, Winter is Coming.
How would you like the Vikings to handle Treadwell this year?
This poll is closed
This is his last year to make a significant contribution, maybe Kubiak can get some value out of him.
Keep him on the roster due to his dead cap hit, give his snaps to the other WR’s to see who’s the real number 3 WR.
Cut him, eat the dead cap, save the roster spot.
Trade him for a 7th, even if it’s a future 7th round pick.
Something else, put your answer in the comments.
