After the Vikings broke off talks on the lease and development agreements, Bagley said there was no point in negotiating until the audit was complete and the authority was confident that “we have the ability to deliver financially.” He also said the audit was having an effect on team’s “leverage” in those talks.

‘A ton of work going on’

Tensions surfaced publicly late last week when the authority attorney leading the probe said that the Wilfs and the team had not responded to repeated requests for the personal financial information.

Officials for the team said over the weekend, however, that they planned to deliver the information this week.

“There’s a ton of work going on,” Bagley said. “But they have gotten the information they need. And it will show, as we’ve said, that regardless of how the New Jersey lawsuit is resolved, it’ll have no impact and no bearing on [the Wilfs’] ability to move forward on the stadium project.”

The team and authority are hoping to open the 65,000-seat stadium by July 2016.
