I saw news of the Patrick Peterson signing first on Twitter last night, my initial reactions was “Woo” but I started to think about it and wonder about the state of the offensive line. I’d anticipate Adam Theilen and the Hitman will both have their salaries converted to bonus this year to free up cash, I also wonder where that leaves Danielle Hunter and his alleged demand for an improved contract. At least this free agency period hasn’t been boring so far anyway. Meanwhile we’ll carry on with our news and links open thread full of crockpot recipes, nap strategies and beer recommendations; drop by for some fan wisdom, snark and it’s Thursday, one more day until it’s weekend eve and time to plan the beer and meat menu for the weekend.

Good signing, contract a bit pricey though, should help the defense.
Is that really where the Vikings should have put their free agency money?
Can he play guord?
