Getting myself caught up after a big day of top-secret meetings that might or might not impact the history of the planet...
- Thursday's legal activities in Minnesota produced no immediate outcome. U.S. District Court Judge Paul Magnuson heard arguments for summary judgment of the lawsuit brought against the NFL by Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams. Magnuson will eventually decide whether to end the case or send it toward its trial date of June 15. The players hope to force the NFL into voiding their four-game suspensions for testing positive to a banned substance.
- Agent Drew Rosenhaus has Tweeted the NFC North again. Rosenhaus wrote Thursday that Chicago defensive ends Adewale Ogunleye and Israel Idonije would be interested in extending their contracts. (Who wouldn't?) Both players are in the final year of their current deals.
- Make sure you check out the preceding video of an appearance Vikings tailback Adrian Peterson made Thursday on ESPN. Among other things, Peterson had this to say about the potential arrival of quarterback Brett Favre: "I know it's a possibility, so just him coming in, just the leadership he would definitely bring. A guy that's well respected, been around the league a long time. I'm a big fan of him. I grew up watching him and just loving the passion he played with. That would be something he would definitely bring to the locker room."
