We made one move that did not affect the cap but are anxiously waiting the big moves left.

Since yore last open thread ...

Report: Danielle Hunter not attending start of Vikings’ offseason program

He should NOT be there. No guaranteed money if he gets hurt. Just an injury settlement.

The Minnesota Vikings sign CB Joejuan Williams

Flores connection but so far, not much production. Probable minimum deal too.

Corner off the board at 23 for the Vikings?

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
