The Restricted Free Agent tneder period coming to a close at 11pm last night. The news broke that Tarvaris Jackson will sign a one year tender for the Vikes this season. Of course there was no team willing to give up a draft pick for T-Jack. His tender is worth $1.176 million.
The NFL finally announced that the regular season schedules will be released on Tuesday. This has been one of the offseasons worst kept secrets. Everyone knows that it happens before the draft. The Vikes know whom they play already, but what order only the privileged know right now. Here are the opponets:
Bears(2 times), Packers(2), Lions(2), Cowboys, Giants, Redskins, Eagles, Bills, Dolphins, Jets, Patriots, Cardinals, and Saints.
This is no 2009 schedule that is for sure, I am hoping for 11-12 wins this season and that is an optimistic guess.
