Who does Houston have to replace Brock Osweiler?

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Wow Chris Tomasson tweeted.... "For gaining 72 yards last season, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson in performance pay got an extra $1,316 plus 95 cents."

:lol: Suit me up. I'd go do that for a quick grand.... and 95 cents

This is cool:

New Vikings RB Latavius Murray will no longer wear No. 28 out of respect for Adrian Peterson
New Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray is giving up the jersey number he’s worn since he was a kid — not because someone who’s already on the team wears it, but because of someone who used to wear it for the Vikings.

Last week the Vikings declined to pick up their option on Adrian Peterson, the running back who has worn the No. 28 jersey for Minnesota the last 10 seasons. Early Thursday morning, the team announced it had signed Murray, who donned the same jersey number for the Oakland Raiders the previous four seasons.

“There wasn't a thought in my mind to try and wear or ask for the #28,” Murray wrote in an Instagram post later that morning. “I have too much respect for AP and so much respect for what he's done and what he means to this organization.”

Yeah he's a great kid. When we played against him he was one of those players that kept quiet and let his play do the talking. He was a stud of a high school player and was always very respectful

Former Vikings offensive tackle Matt Kalil was reunited with his brother, Panthers center Ryan, in free agency this offseason. But he arrived in his new destination without a Twitter account.

"After playing in Minnesota, I just got rid of my Twitter," Matt said Wednesday on The Rich Eisen Show. "I was harassed left and right."

Added Ryan: "This is not good intel for fans, but players read this stuff. Oh they read all of it. They try and act like they don't, but they read it all. Like, if I was a fan of an opposing team, I'd just be tweeting at a guy to get in his head all week. All week long."

....I had a feeling him leaving was partly in due to the fans. There are some fans that are just absolute idiots and psychotic on social media. I see it on instagram all the time too. I noticed Blair Walsh disabled commenting on every photo he has put up because if he didnt fans would be on there threatening his life. People gotta realize that these guys are real people too. No less 99.9% of these fans saying this stuff, would never say it to these guys in person. Instead they do it behind a computer screen so they feel tough.

This happened to Adam Thielen this past season as well. ADAM THIELEN. Arguably the nicest guy on earth/hometown hero and his wife came out and said before were threatening his life as well as his family's because he fumbled a punt vs. Dallas. I just dont understand what's wrong with people.

As much as I wasnt a fan of Kalil and Walsh, I feel for the guys. One minute, youre a hero to these fans and one mess up or many mess ups, and you're literally dead to them. It's gotta be tough on these guys and just drive them right out of Minneapolis. These freakin fans need to chill out. Hopefully nobody on this board is like that
