On NBC's Football Night in America, sports writer Peter King reported the Vikings and Minnesota officials are close to a new stadium deal. According to NBC Sports, it's not a matter of "if," but "when." The Vikings have called Minnesota home since their NFL debut in 1961, but the Metrodome lease expires after the 2011 season. The report did not state whether the new stadium would be in Arden Hills or Minneapolis.
