On Monday morning, it was announced that longtime Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Phil Loadholt had decided to retire. With his retirement, Loadholt’s spot on the Vikings roster is presumably vacant.

Minnesota now has three openings on their roster before their total number reaches the NFL’s 90-man limit. The Vikings can decide to leave those spots empty before they start training camp later this week, but that would not be any fun would it?

Surprisingly enough, there are still plenty of talented free-agents available that could produce for Minnesota during the 2016 season.

Dear William Percival Harvin III,

Your time with the Minnesota Vikings was greatly appreciated by at least some of the team’s fans. On behalf of those fans, there are a few accomplishments that you should be thanked for.

During last week’s NFL regular season schedule release, it was revealed that the Minnesota Vikings will have the luxury of playing two Thursday games in the 2016. The first Thursday game will take place on Thanksgiving day against the Detroit Lions and the second will occur the very next week on December 1st, against the Dallas Cowboys.

In four Thursday games last season, the NFL required the participating teams to wear a “Color Rush” uniform. The uniforms were met with plenty of mixed reviews, including the reaction from people who are color blind and struggled to view some of the obnoxiously bold uniform combinations featured in the games.

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings got their second divisional road win since 2009 Sunday afternoon at Ford Field, rebounding from a slow start to top the Motor City Kitties 28-19. The Zimmer Hellfire Defense sacked Matthew Stafford seven times en route to a 2nd half defensive shutout as the Purple roll to 4-2 and hope to catch playoff momentum as we barrel along the 2015 campaign.
