- You know what Patriots QB Ryan Mallett did after not getting selected in the first round of the draft? He rode his ATV until 3 a.m.
- It looks like the Metrodome’s roof will be raised (ooh, sorry for the bad pun) in time for the Vikings home opener in 2011.
- Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is pretty adamant about getting a bill done that would fund a new stadium for the Vikings. Even if the state’s budget is going to be short about $5 billion the next two years, Dayton wants this thing done ASAP.
- The Dolphins will induct former broadcaster Jim Mandich – who also was a starter on the undefeated 1972 Miami team – into the organization’s honor roll. Mandich died last week from cancer at the age of 62. He will be the 22nd member of the honor roll.
- Another interesting story from Yahoo! Sports’ Mike Silver on the dislike many NFL players have for commissioner Roger Goodell.
- A Cowboys spokeswoman who says she was hurt when the team’s practice facility collapsed in 2009 has filed a lawsuit. Jancy Briles is suing the companies responsible for building the structure, and she’s looking for compensation for "serious, disabling and permanent injuries."
- The Ravens are still optimistic that LB Sergio Kindle will, at some point, be cleared to play for the team.
- And while we’re talking about Barber, the NY Post opines that he could wind up with the Steelers or the Buccaneers.
- Could Cowboys third-round pick DeMarco Murray really challenge Felix Jones for the starting RB job in Dallas? That’s a distinct possibility.
- Former Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi, along with former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, will attempt to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro next week as they try to drum up support for the Wounded Warrior Project. Sounds like a lot of climbing to me.
