Free agency begins. So far the Vikes have lost underwhelming, oft-injured, and expensive left tackle Matt Kalil, blocking tight end Rhett Ellison, and punter guy Jeff Locke. They have signed free agent offensive tackle Riley Reiff, former Detroit Lion.

Longtime Viking linebacker Chad Greenway has decided to hang up the cleats.

I'm not upset one smidgen of an iota about losing Kalil. That man has caused a cornucopia of cuss words to rage from my jowls during his time with the Vikings.

Ellison? Hardly knew 'im.

Punter guy? Don't care. He punts, which in reality, is giving up. Every time you send the punting team out there, you're giving up. I wouldn't take much pride as a coach on how well my team performs while giving up. In fact, I'd prefer to be really bad at giving up. Vikes need to find THAT guy. They'd be justified in paying him veteran minimum too, because he would be bad at his job.
