Good Morning!

You are stuck with me again. I’ve been really focused on the NHL and NBA playoffs and not so much on the non-existent offseason news. I am really curious to see our OL and CB lineups for the first preseason game in a few months. Really hoping to see two rookies starting on OL for us to kick off the season. Darrisaw - Cleveland - Bradbury - Davis - O’Neil seems to be the presumed lineup. CB I assumed would be P2, Dantzler and Mac Alexander (slot) as the starters. I might have sole Bashaud Breeland short in my initial reaction. There is a chance he starts above Dantzler. Curious to see if that still leaves Mac in the slot for Nickel or if there is a different lineup. We all know there will be injuries so no need to worry about not seeing Dantzler. He should be able to learn a lot from the vet CBs coming in.

Vikings news from other sources: has their Monday Morning Mailbag.

Cody Bejamin of CBS Sports has his Week 1 Depth Chart Projection. I don’t know how much thought he put into the OL lineup.

Andrew Krammer has a piece on our rookie punter on the StarTribune.

League News:

The Ravens extended RB Gus Edwards on a two year deal.

The Ravens also signed OT Ja’Wuan James to a two year deal. James has a grievance with the Broncos after he tore his Achilles while working out away from the team facility.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-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 wash your hands, tip your waiter well and Welcome Aboard!
