10:35 PM ET 05.08 | The Minnesota Vikings and the University of Minnesota reached agreement on a facility use agreement allowing Vikings to use the TCF Bank Stadium during the construction of the team's new stadium, according to FOX 9. The Vikings announced in February that they would play at TCF Bank stadium during the 2014 and 2015 seasons, but the terms were not yet finalized. A May letter of intent set a tentative deal for the Vikings to pay the school $3 million a season for up to four seasons. "There's no reason to think two years will be a problem," university spokesman Steve Henneberry said in February. The Metrodome is scheduled to be torn down in February 2014 and the new stadium should be ready to open by July 1, 2016.

I think the interns made a mistake. KFC Stadium fits better.

Maybe they could borrow the Golden Gophers' Quarterback as well.

Might as well, since we just borrowed Greg Jenning from Green Bay.

Was wondering what took you so long to respond. :) You can have Jennings. In our stable of WR's he was totally expendable. You're more than welcome to overpay for him like you did when he's CLEARLY on the downslide and can't stay healthy. Good luck dealing with his twitter happy psycho sister though. If she tweeted so openly and loudly about A-Rod not getting him the ball enough in a contract year, she'll have a real ball on Twitter with Ponder throwing to him. She'll realize how wrong she was to shoot that big yapper of hers off when she did. I will say though just so you can't say I'm doing nothing but ripping, your draft looks promising.
