Tuesday Open Thread: March 21, 2017

Another beautiful spring day.....can baseball start soon? Merry Tuesday, everyone! Ahhh, I love spring. It’s warming up, the birds are starting to chirp again, baseball is ready to begin, and the fish are getting ready to start biting. I’m ready to say adios to winter for the year, aren’t you? I know, I know, I’m well aware that in this part of the country, we could very easily get another foot or two of snow. Don’t be bugging me with your reality, I’m just fine in my own little happy world. Around the DN since our last open thread: MarkSP18 brought you a Vikings Mock Draft:...

Gerald Hodges Interested In Return To Minnesota

Gerald Hodges Interested In Return To Minnesota

He was traded away in 2015, and is now a free agent. The other day when running down some of the remaining free agents that could potentially help the Minnesota Vikings, I mentioned former Vikings’ linebacker Gerald Hodges as a potential fit at linebacker. As it turns out, he sounds like he’s interested in coming back. In an interview with Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Hodges expressed interest in returning to the place where he started his NFL career. The free agent wrote in a text message to the Pioneer Press on Monday he has interest in going back to the team that...

Vikings Mock Draft - Free Agency Day 12 Plan

Vikings Mock Draft - Free Agency Day 12 Plan

The Vikings got off to a decent start to free agency shoring up the most critical area of need which was offensive tackle by far. Adding a veteran running back like Latavius Murray appears to be a decent move since he can be released before the 3rd day of the league year in 2018. Adding Datone Jones to play DE/DT appears to be a decent move too and he is only guaranteed 1.6 mil and will have to battle for his roster spot which I assume he should make. The Vikings gave Thielen a nice extension but his exact numbers per year have not been added to spotrac yet. Right now, without Thielen...

NFL Free Agency has been underway for almost two weeks, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it feels that it unfolds like this for the Vikings every year, according to fans: Night Before: WOOOOO CAN'T WAIT TO SEE ALL THE GUYS WE SIGN I'M SO EXCITED Literally less than one hour into free agency: RICK SPIELMAN HAS SIGNED NO ONE WHYYYYYYYYYYYY THIS SUCKS SOOOOOOOO BAAAAAAAAAAD When the prize free agent at the Vikings biggest position of need signs elsewhere: FIRE SPIELMAN NOW THIS ORGANIZATION IS A FREAKIN' JOKE AND AN...

Should The Minnesota Vikings Retire #84?

Should The Minnesota Vikings Retire #84?

The Vikings haven’t retired many numbers. This is one they probably should. UPDATE: The folks from The Viking Age had a post about retiring Randy Moss' number up before we did. I should have given them the acknowledgement the first time around, and I apologize for not having done so. In the history of the franchise, the Minnesota Vikings have retired only six numbers to keep them out of further rotation. 10 - Fran Tarkenton53 - Mick Tingelhoff70 - Jim Marshall77 - Korey Stringer80 - Cris Carter88 - Alan Page That’s a pretty impressive list. . .four Hall of Famers, one guy that damn...

Who’s Still Left For The Vikings In Free Agency?

Who’s Still Left For The Vikings In Free Agency?

The pickings are a little bit slim after a week and a half. The free agent signing period in the National Football League kicked off ten days ago, and a lot of players have changed teams thus far. The Minnesota Vikings lost eight of their in-house free agents, but did manage to bring in two new offensive tackles, a versatile defensive lineman, and a new running back. There really isn’t a whole lot left in free agency at this point, but are there players out there that can still help the Minnesota Vikings? The answer to that is a definite. . .maybe. I’m going down the list of some of the...

Latavius Murray: “I’m not here to replace” Adrian Peterson

Latavius Murray: “I’m not here to replace” Adrian Peterson

The new Vikings running back explains why he won’t wear his usual #28 in Minnesota. While most of you were sleeping in the wee hours of Wednesday night/Thursday morning, the Minnesota Vikings finalized a deal with former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray. According to Ian Rapoport, the deal is for three years and roughly $15 million. That’s a very reasonable price for a starting-caliber running back, especially when you throw in this team-friendly detail from Ben Goessling: Murray has a $5.15 million base salary in 2018, which becomes guaranteed if he's on the roster on the...

Report: Latavius Murray signs with Vikings

Running back signed contract late Wednesday night and could signal the end of Adrian Peterson’s career in Minnesota. This was one of the longest free agency visits that Vikings Twitter has seen in a very long time. #Murraywatch lasted for an entire day. It was rumored by many across Twitter that the Vikings might have simply locked free agent running back Latavius Murray into Winter Park to make sure he couldn’t escape before signing a contract with us. In fact, Ted made a great personal sacrifice in pursuit of the Murray scoop. I'm out #Vikings Twitter. Phone is dying and I need to...

Report: Adam Thielen re-signs with Vikings

Report: Adam Thielen re-signs with Vikings

The Vikings hooked on A. Thielen for three more years. After what was a relatively slow start to free agency by the Vikings, fans are probably Thielen a little better today. With the departures of Charles Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson to the Carolina Panthers (a.k.a. #VikingsSoutheast), the Vikings suddenly found themselves a little thin at wide receiver. They had already used a second-round tender on restricted free agent Adam Thielen, which still left the door open for other teams to sign him away. On Wednesday, the Vikings slammed that door shut by signing Thielen to a three-year...
