June in the NFL is sort of like waking up at 5 a.m. when the alarm is set for 6:30 a.m. You probably can't fall asleep again, but getting up that early feels like a waste of time, so you just sort of lay there.
Teams across the league have all finished their first round of OTAs, beginning the summer season in shorts and a whole lot of sweat.
For the Minnesota Vikings the OTAs are probably as important as anywhere else in the league, as the Vikings are trying to integrate a second-year coach and quarterback into a team that could have as many as 15 to 20 new players on the roster.
At a time when the free-agent pool has mostly been picked through and undrafted rookies who have any chance of sticking have all signed, there isn't much left for a team to add that would pay much of a dividend.
There are some pretty high-profile names still out there, but they all come with red flags and caution tape for a variety of reasons. They're old, injured or just not worth the trouble of bringing into your locker room.
I think the Vikings had a stellar draft and at this point see no reason why all 10 drafted players won't make the roster. Add to that several signed free agents and Minnesota will have a decidedly different look at the start of the 2012 season.
Here is a look at a few players the Vikings could still conceivably get, but more often than not, I'll list reasons as to why the Vikings should probably stay away.
