Merry Wednesday, everyone!

We’re half-way through another week of this abnormal off-season. The Vikes and Reiff agreed to terms on a restructured contract, which is good, because we have enough question marks and doubts on the O-line without removing one of the more reliable and consistent pieces of it.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Wludford looks at the apparent Vikings “plan” at O-line with justifiable skepticism.

Well, he wasn’t released after all. Riley Reiff has agreed to restructure his contract, per Chris. Hopefully we’ll see details of that restructure soon.

Luft Krigare posted Vikings Defense 2020 - Pt 2: The DBs - CTPN Quick Shots.

Other Vikings/NFL news, and random oddities and annoyances:

From NFL.com, Alvin Kamara stated that he’s made no trade request and he hasn’t threatened to hold out. former Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette has cleared waivers and is now a free agent, and the Lions have signed LT Taylor Decker to a multi-year extension.

Although Kamara has made no trade request, the Saints are open to trading the running back, per CBS Sports. Anything is for sale.......for the right price, unless you’re one of those old dudes that American Pickers goes to visit sometimes. Every now & then, they go to one where the old dude has a 20 acre yard, stacked full of junk, hasn’t seen or touched most of the stuff in the last 30 years, but when they try to buy something......nah, I don’t think I can part with it. Uhhhh......you didn’t even know you had it until they offered you money for it, and you can’t part with it? Okay then.

We come to today’s media selection:

Here’s a great one from a band I like a lot. This is The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with Workin’ Man. Enjoy!

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-Take the gender hatred elsewhere, it won’t be tolerated
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
-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 wash your hands, touch each other’s faces often, and try the finger food
