    Taken from ESPN.Com @ 1:08 a.m. C.S.T.

    The Vikings tried to put a Friday night deadline on a trade of Daunte Culpepper but no deal has been finalized.


    Three teams were in the supposed final bidding -- the Raiders, the Dolphins and the Titans. But the Raiders dropped out when they heard the price was going to be a second-round choice.


    The Vikings were telling teams they could get a second-round choice for Culpepper, who asked to be traded early this week.

    I for one didn't see that coming..............maybe Reese IS trying to make a splash!

    boy o boy, I did not see that either.

    But heck, take Culpepper for a 2nd is worth it, and can get Brick, Hawk, trade down to get another 2nd round pick, trade volek (or McNair) get another 3rd.

    I dunno.

    I really dont see this happening, but as long as we dont have to give up a first Id be for it, then we could go with Ferguson or Hawk with our first round pick and still get a pretty young QB. But, I still dont see it happening.

    Culpeper would be an improvement over Mac. If he returns to 2004 form we would be able to stretch the field and he would have some mobility if his wheel heals up. We could trade down and take a RB(Deangelo or Lendale) or Hawk or take D'brick and shure up the O-line.

    I don't know either Gunny.............I guess it hasn't sunk in yet! That one came out of left field. If I had to lean one way or the other, I'd say pull the trigger for a 2nd Rounder, Volek or McNair and turn around and trade the other to Miami for their 2nd?? I'm at a loss for the moment...............probably all for nothing though. There has to be a hang up somewhere because we've heard nothing for the last 24 hrs of how Minnesota would make a deal prior to the deadline and now we're past it and still no deal!

    He is definately leaving Minnesota, and I honestly dont like the idea of drafting a QB with the 3rd pick because they tend to be about 50/50 whether they end up being worth that high a pick or not. I dont see us getting Culpepper, but if it just takes a second I say do it and draft Hawk or Ferguson.

    This is un-Reese like though. Which is why I find it hard to believe.

    I dont believe it either, but we should at least keep in mind that we are more of a player for something like this with the cap than we thought we would be. If we are going to draft a QB at 3 then we are giving up on McNair anyway, so I would rather take the proven guy and draft at another posistion then draft a QB at 3.

    If it wasn't for Peymeaton in 2004 Duante would have got his roll on all the way to MVP. I think we should give up the two and forget about the crapshoot at #3.
