NFC North Daily: Hot Breakfast Links for June 7, 2012

Andrew GardaFeatured ColumnistJune 7, 2012

Another day in the books—and another begun. OTAs are wrapping up across the league and veteran-only camps will be gearing up over the next few weeks—which means "break time" is almost upon us.

Given some of the arrests this offseason, that may be a bad thing.

Today we have an arrest-free links edition—a mea culpa from me, more OTA news, a Percy Harvin highlight, contract and financial discussions and more!

Your breakfast hotlinks brought to you by NFC North Sausages! Best Links in the Frozen North!

Clearly, I need more sleep.



Minnesota Vikings

So first of all, I mentioned Kalil being absent from OTAs yesterday in an article on the Vikings offseason and it was correctly pointed out to me that he is there despite being unsigned. Rookies can attend OTAs unsigned, though many don't—so apologies for that error and I'll be correcting the article this morning to reflect it.

Speaking of OTAs, Dan Wiederer has a breakdown of yesterday's media-friendly session including who wasn't there, a Jerome Simpson catch and a few other things.

Chris Gates continues his offseason video series with another edition of the Highlight Video of the Night—this one is an impressive game-changing Percy Harvin touchdown.

Antoine Winfield may be the oldest Viking, but that's not stopping the team from depending on him, writes Jeremy Fowler.


Chicago Bears

Jeff Dickerson catches us up on who did and didn't show at OTAs yesterday.

As we constantly read about former players in virtual financial ruin, I thought this was timely. Sean Jensen writes that rookie Shea McClellin is being frugal and should heed advice from former players.

Meanwhile, Mark Potash writes that Lance Briggs at least, isn't worried about Matt Forte's absence from Halas Hall.


Detroit Lions

Justin Rogers reports that Ndamukong Suh was rated 38th by his fellow players in the NFL Top 100 Players list.

Tom Lewand says the contract ball is in Cliff Avril's court according to Dave Birkett. That sounds like a "best final offer" sort of statement, doesn't it?


Green Bay Packers

In case you missed it, I was on Railbird Central talking Packers yesterday—you can check it out here. 

Also at CheeseheadTV, Brian Carriveau talks about what James Starks is doing to improve his game for the coming season. 

Pete Dougherty writes that the return of Donald Driver has repercussions for two former practice squad players this season. 


That's it for today folks—see you with more links tomorrow!
