The Vikings are going to file a motion today in court to have the Korey Stringer family's $100 million lawsuit against the team dropped.
The Vikings will claim the the suit is groundless, since it claims the Vikings intentional attempted to hurt Stringer by making him practice in full pads after suffering from heat-related exhaustion on the opening day of training camp.
Citing that the suit doesn't fit under the Minnesota Workers Compensation Act guidelines, the Vikings will ask the court to simply dismiss the charges. If the charges aren't dropped, the suit will continue, but be moved from Hennepin County to Blue Earth County -- since Stringer died in Mankato.
* The Vikings have a press conference today to officially announce the hiring of Scott Linehan as the team's new offensive coordinator.
* In NFL licensing news, Marshall Faulk became the No. 1 player in merchandise sales for the league. Randy Moss dropped to No. 16 for 2001.
* The early odds are out for Super Bowl 2002 and the Vikings are a long shot, sitting at 35-1 to win the Super Bowl, among the early longshots in the NFC. The St. Louis Rams remain the favorite at 3-1.
