The relationship between the Vikings and Fran Foley was so brief that some speculated that the team could have legally had their mutual time together annulled.
It wasn't that easy, but nearly four months after his unceremonious ouster from the team, Foley and the Vikings have finally had a permanent parting of the ways.
On Wednesday, the league announced that Foley and the Vikings had reached an agreement to settle his three-year, $1 million contract. Terms of the deal were not announced, but Jeffrey Kessler, Foley's attorney in the matter, said Foley was satisfied with the outcome.
* Further evidence that Koren Robinson likely has little to no chance of returning to the Vikings was evidenced Wednesday at practice. Marcus Robinson, who had a "M" on his jersey from the time Koren arrived, didn't have the "M" on his jersey at practice -- a sign that there is only one Robinson left on the Vikings.
* Brad Childress said Wednesday that he expects the starters to play a little longer Friday vs. the Ravens. The third game of the preseason is typically when teams play their guys the longest -- usually the entire first half and a drive or two in the second half -- to give them experience in not only playing an entire half, but also the cool-down at halftime and the adjustments that the coaches put in before the second half.
* Chad Greenway is scheduled to have surgery on his knee today by famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews in the doctor's native Alabama.
* Onterrio Smith has been ordered to pay $50,000 by a court arbitrator in a sexual assault case that allegedly occured in 2005. Smith and the woman who brought the charges have until Sept. 10 to agree to the arbitrator's ruling or the case will go to court.
