BBAO: D-Line upgrade a priority for Vikings

We’re Black and Blue All Over:

Chicago Bears

Michael C. Wright cites Eagles offensive lineman Nick Cole as a player the Bears might be interested in once a new labor agreement is in place.

How active the Bears will be in free agency is a question even general manager Jerry Angelo can't answer right now.

Detroit Lions

Lockout or not, Cliff Avril -- who on Tuesday was tendered at the first- and third-round level -- says he'll be back in Detroit on March 14 to begin preparing for the 2011 season.

Green Bay Packers

Coach Mike McCarthy is confident the team will be able to work tight end Jermichael Finley back into the offense.

The Packers are approaching the deadline to offer tenders to their restricted free agents.

Minnesota Vikings

Improving the defensive line is a priority for Vikings coach Leslie Frazier.

Discussions regarding a new stadium in Arden Hills, Minn., will enter the "nitty-gritty" details stage next week.
