Vikings | Culpepper's salary demands not taken too 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.
Vikings | Team reportedly shopping Culpepper

Dave Spadaro, of PhiladelphiaEagles.com, reports the Minnesota Vikings are reportedly calling NFL teams it perceives to be in the market for a quarterback and floating QB Daunte Culpepper's name to gauge the interest level and determine if it will engage in trade talks for Culpepper, who missed much of last season after tearing three ligaments in his knee.
I know we know all about the second one, but it seems to be getting hot and heavy.
G'Bye, Pep. (Yay).
