That would be awesome either there or Baltimore. I don't care how deep Oakland is into money issues they will find a way to get him if they want him. I can see him involved with Baltimore with some sort of trade for Jamal Lewis.

Lewis is a free agent. No way he'd sign a contract just to be traded.

A 2nd rounder? I don't care if he had to miss half of this coming season you make that trade NOW. Hell, Miami traded a 2nd rounder for AJ Feeley for crying out loud. Thankfully that regime is out of Miami. But a 2nd rounder for Culpepper? Yes, please.

Haha, the Vikings organization are the Chicago Blackhawks of the NFL.

"I wonder what will happen if we trade away all of our good players??"

Based on the way they held out for top value with Moss, I wouldn't be surprised to see them hit the panic button as well with Culpepper and dump him for a sack of wet hair, AGAIN.

Vikings | Culpepper's salary demands not taken to well by Wilf
Thu, 16 Feb 2006 06:28:03 -0800

Kevin Seifert, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper demanded a big salary increase and owner Zygi Wilf was not thrilled to hear it. Culpepper, according to two people with knowledge of the situation, asked that approximately $10 million be added to his contract this season, increasing his total 2006 compensation to a staggering $18 million. Wilf angrily turned down Culpepper's request, and it is believed that no substantive communication has taken place since. The disagreement is the largest impetus for soliciting trade offers for Culpepper, but Culpepper might also be seeking a fresh start after suffering a major injury to his right knee and being charged with three misdemeanors in connection with an alleged Oct. 6 sex party on Lake Minnetonka. Culpepper, due a $6 million bonus March 14, faces the task of learning Childress' west-coast offense while being unable to practice until summer at the earliest. Any team trading for Culpepper probably views him as a 2007 option and considers playing time in 2006 a bonus. Culpepper contends the Vikings promised last summer to address his contract further after the 2005 season; the team has denied that claim.

I don't know what makes him worth 10 million more :-? Maybe it's just his ploy to get out of town. And I bet that promise was under the condition that he was healthy enough to renegotiate...

I guess this really isnt suprising news to me - I pretty much expected it. I doubt they will get anything for him to be perfectly honest - teams know now that MIN will likely cut him rather than having to eat his huge salary this season. This change has been in the works for a while now, and they cemented it by transitioning to a WCO - a scheme that would completely expose Cpepp's weaknesses.

Hopefully a team like MIA takes a chance on him - their style of offense with the deep threat in Chambers should play perfectly to CPepp's strengths. If he goes to any team with a complicated scheme based on timing and accuracy, he'll be a waste.

Miami will still run Linehans offense this coming season which is the same system Culpepper loved in Minny. Send him to Miami now!
