Line of the day comes from Kevan Lee of obnug.com (One Bronco Nation Under God): "With the city of Boise behind him, wife Chrissy supporting him, and Chris Myers watching from the bushes at least 50 feet away as mandated by a restraining order, Ian Johnson is doing everything he can to nail down a roster spot with the Minnesota Vikings. Everything, that is, short of being Albert Young." Lee speaks of the former Iowa Hawkeye who sits at No. 3 among Minnesota running backs--ahead of Johnson, although the Vikings' first depth chart shows Young and Johnson with "or" in between them for the third-string spot, along with two other players. Jud Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune said yesterday on Idaho SportsTalk he wouldn't be surprised to see Ian end up on the practice squad.
