    ESPN is now saying Culpepper trade may happen...

    Maybe there is something to all the talk about CPEP wanting out of the Vikings Ship..

    They said, it's more for personal reasons, and he wants a new start....

    Did someone actually interview him from ESPN? They didn't say this.....


    But 3 teams they mentioned looking at him are...

    Miami, Ravens, and believe it or not.....The Raiders...

    WOW, this is going to be a hell of an off season for us......


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Sunday NFL Countdown - Pepper Trade

    I was just watching 'Sunday NFL Countdown' and on the headlines they reported that a Culpepper trade is more realistic than not.
    They said that ole Pepper is looking for more money, but at the moment, the Vikes aren't complying.
    I know there have been many forums about this subject, but sense it was on Countdown, it's almost like a reality check on how possible this could happen.
    Neither Culpepper nor Childress commented as of late.

    (I forgot the exact headline and how it was worded, but it was something like "Culpepper angling for trade?")

    Yeah, I just saw it on Countdown and made a thread about it. They said "personal reasons" and that he wants more money...
    But what the heck personal reasons would he have to wanna be traded?
    Sounds like an excuse to me.

    Re: Sunday NFL Countdown - Pepper Trade

    If this actually does happen this would be crazy. Trade off our 2 best players in the last 2 years. If we do trade him we better get something way better then a first round draft pick and Napoleon Harris, thats all I got to say. It better be for like Ray Ray Lewis or Julius Peppers or someone like that.

    Re: ESPN is now saying Cullpepper trade may happen...

    The more I am hearing this off season the more I am starting to accept that the Vikings are in for some MAJOR changes. I just really hope that Wilf, Childress, and company are the "savoirs" for this team and that all these moves are going to be for the positive and to help this team out in the long run.

    I am definately preparing for rocky season or 2 with the hopes of building for the future. The biggest thing that worries me is that our team wasnt THAT bad and there is still all this change so far

    Bottom line is his stock isn't high right now so getting either of those calibur players is not realistic. I'd be happy getting someone like Carlos Dansby and a good OL.

    Then there's this...

    Orlando Sentinal
    Vikes, Culpepper may divorce
    Chris Harry
    Published January 22, 2006


    Hard to believe, but the saga of the Minnesota Vikings took another
    soap-opera turn this past week.

    Imagine the look on the face of Rob Brzezinski, vice president of
    football operations, when agent Mason Ashe walked into Vikings
    headquarters and told the team that Daunte Culpepper deserved a raise.

    Before continuing, let's get something straight. Culpepper is a good
    guy. He was a beacon of positive exposure for UCF and has been a
    tremendous community influence in Orlando. Culpepper also has been a
    great NFL quarterback and citizen the better part of his career.

    But he wasn't this season.

    Culpepper signed a 10-year contract extension for $102 million in April
    2003. Last summer, new Vikings owner Zygi Wilf agreed to add $8 million
    worth of bonuses to the deal, $6 million of which is due in mid-March.

    Wilf has given no indication he will renege, despite what only could be
    construed as a six-month nightmare with the franchise's marquee player.

    In a year when the Vikings were a fashionable pick to win the NFC,
    Culpepper got the team off to a 2-5 start, throwing twice as many
    interceptions (12) as touchdowns (six) before suffering a season-ending
    knee injury.

    Then things got worse.

    While veteran Brad Johnson was turning the Vikings' season around --
    leading them back into the playoff chase with six consecutive victories
    -- Culpepper was hit with misdemeanor charges in the infamous "Love
    Boat' scandal, damaging his squeaky-clean reputation.

    Now he wants more money?

    On the face of it, none of it makes sense.

    Then again, it all does.

    Culpepper wants out of Minnesota. Making ungodly demands at the most
    inopportune time is the first step in trying to force the issue. And
    don't think some of Culpepper's former coaches and biggest fans --
    Dennis Green in Arizona, Brian Billick in Baltimore and Scott Linehan in
    St. Louis -- won't be watching this development.

    Well let's trade him for Ray Lewis than. I'm all for that I guess.

    Re: Sunday NFL Countdown - Pepper Trade

    Culpepper is starting to fall towards my "unliked" side. I mean, he's a great player, but from reports and what he is trying to do doesn't seem like he is worried about the team.
    But then again, he hasn't had his word in. Hopefully once he makes a public statement he will set everything straight and help anwser some questions and help people realize.

    I also agree that we better get someone(s) good for Culpepper, because we hardly got jack for Moss.
