With the draft a mere 2 weeks away, the league that never sleeps has finally released the 2016 preseason schedule.

It seems more and more every day that the NFL is trying to stay in the news 24/7/365.  But if your'e a die-hard fan of the league then you make no apologies to craving any or more information when it's become available.

Case in point: It's gotten so bad that people are anxious to seeing the preseason schedules released... PRESEASON!  You know, those games BEFORE the regular season that don't count?  Yeah, those... But I digress.

It's looking like the Vikings will be spending the first two weeks on the road at Cincinnati and Seattle.  Coach Mike Zimmer should have fun with this one as he will face his old club for the first time since becoming the Vikes head coach following the 2013 season in Week 1.

Week 3 will be a national FOX broadcast as the Vikings christen their new home, and debut at U.S. Bank Stadium against the San Diego Chargers.

Should be an interesting slate of games regardless and it'll fun to see Teddy play with his new and revamped offensive line, along with any newcomers from the 2016 draft.  SKOL!
