Dudes been hit in the head too many times. Imagine if we sign him and then cut a backup player, and then he decides to retire again.

I hope they aren't interested in Incognito. I'd prefer a trade for someone else they have identified or roll the dice on a player like Jahri Evans if they aren't happy with the in-house options.

Any reports of people skipping OTAs? I think Elflein is out due to his injury but seems like the rest of the team is there.

Only one making headlines is Barr at the moment.

The first-team offense line was as follows (keeping in mind Elflein was out):

RT Mike Remmers
RG Tom Compton
C Nick Easton
LG Danny Isidora
LT Riley Reiff

Second-team offensive line for you die-hards:

RT Rashod Hill
RG Colby Gossett
C Cornelius Edison
LG Josh Andrews
LT Aviante Collins

But...

Zimmer: Rashod Hill was banged up this week so we put Remmers at right tackle. We might move him to guard next week. Vikings remaining open to O-like configuration

Where is our 2nd pick O'Neil?

Looks like Eagles is going to cut Mychal Kendrick's, Could he be a cheaper replacement for Barr?
Would he like playing with his brother?

I guess third string or didn't participate in team drills. Maybe if they play with Remmers at guard, he'll take snaps with the second string.

Mychal Kendricks is visiting the #Vikings, #Raiders and #Browns this week, per source. We can expect Kendricks to make his decision this week as well, source adds.

Guess I'll put OTA stuff here.
@ChadGraff
Vikings kickers took five attempts in front of the team at today’s OTA session.
Daniel Carlson went 5-for-5 with a long of 53 yards.
Kai Forbath went 3-for-5 with misses from 42 and 46.
@JReidDraftScout
Pelissero saying that the Vikings feel that Holton Hill has “starter potential” and he’s been working with the second unit in OTAs. He’s been in rehab classes for his off the field issues. Said he already feels relieved and better.
@TomPelissero
We got a glimpse at today’s #Vikings OTA practice of what Kirk Cousins’ new teammates have been raving about privately since he got on the field. @nflnetwork NFLN video clip https://twitter.com/tompelissero/status ... 43073?s=21
