    Meanwhile, Childress had dinner the other night with unrestricted free-agent cornerback Brian Williams in an effort to convince him to re-sign with the Vikings.
    Hope that parts true.

    The Culpepper piece sounds like it is more for trade value (as LuckyVike points out), otherwise, why make a point of it right before the trading period starts. Reporting bad news on Culpepper hurts the Vikings positioning, and for paying him off if he does stay, well hey, they know the real story, so it doesn't help Cpep in dealing with Mn.

    To me this is some great news.

    I would guess it all depends on where they had dinner though...

    McDonalds or Jenson's?....


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Re: Childress praises Culpepper's rehab

    Finally!!! Some good news concerning Pepp. McKinney said it best. Let's not make another dumbo mistake here. Let's get on the path of picking up some quality Free agents and scouting the draft. Despite the bad luck of last year there is a quality core of players to work with here. A little help in the defensive backfield and a healthy offensive line would be a great start. I, for one, can't wait to see Pepp return on the field as a Vikings player.
    it's tarv time............

    I don't know about that, but I saw this article on ESPN.com and it sounds like he will probably and hopefully be back.

    [size=18px]Childress optimistic on Culpepper [/size]

    By Jim Corbett, USA TODAY

    INDIANAPOLIS — Brad Childress insists that resurrecting the Daunte Culpepper who was a 2004 league MVP candidate with 39 touchdown passes is his top priority as new coach of the Minnesota Vikings, but he additionally conceded Friday that there's always a chance Culpepper, who is recovering from November surgery to repair three torn knee ligaments, could be released or traded.

    With Culpepper three months removed from reconstructive knee surgery, Childress received a positive report from the Vikings' trainer who visited Culpepper as he continues his rehab near his Orlando home.

    Asked if he envisions a September roster with Culpepper and last year's substitute starter Brad Johnson on the same roster, Childress says:

    "I have to have that mindset," he says. "All my energy in talking to our trainer and sending our trainer down there is about getting him back to the level of play that he established in 2004. He established a standard of play. I just want to get him back to that standard."

    There's still a chance Johnson could be cut with Culpepper, who is due a $6 million bonus March 17.

    "You never say never," Childress says when asked if Culpepper could still be released.

    But Childress seemed relieved to get a positive prognosis on Culpepper's ahead-of-schedule rehab.

    "With everything swirling this time of year, I was just happy we were able to get somebody down there and put their hands on Daunte and look at his progress. He's doing a great job by all indications with that. He was able to see him do some limited running drills. The whole focus for me is getting him back to where he was in 2004 with a healthy knee."

    Childress optimistic on Culpepper
