Vikings | Culpepper's agent to begin negotiations
Thu, 19 Jan 2006 12:30:01 -0800

Sean Jensen (http://www.kffl.com/link/33), of the St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://www.kffl.com/link/26), reports Minnesota Vikings (http://www.kffl.com/team/23/nfl) QB Daunte Culpepper (http://www.kffl.com/player/1120/nfl)'s agent is expected to begin "scheduled" contract negotiations with the team to make Culpepper one of the highest-paid players in the league.


1. Isn't he already like on a 100 Million dollar contract?
2. Isn't he coming back from a major injury and should prove something before asking for the best money around?
3. What did he do besides 1 great season and a couple of good seasons?
4. Is this only a way to get booted from the team for demanding too much?

Anyways, I find it curious and thought I should post this since alot of people here want him in Miami next season. Personally, I have no problem with that, the more talent, the merrier... but not at any price.

He is ridiculous he just came off his worst year and a serious injury and he wants to be one of the highest paid players in the league. I don't want him even sniffing around the Dolphin lockeroom stay in Minny and if they pay him there GM should be fired.

I think he doesn't wanna play for the Vikes, Brad Johnson didn't do bad there, Dante SHOULD be able to do better, and if he can't what's that say about his skill?

That is crazy asking for even more money after being seriously injured...I would love to see Culpepper with the Fins but not if he is getting greedy. :shakeno:

He COULD be doing this just to leave minn. I mean OBVIOUSLY hes not gonna get the money he wants, especially when brad johnson outplayed him. If he does leave, the only team that could really afford him is Arizona...and that would be a perfect fit for him, and arizona could draft a good RB and be set for offense.

A cheap way of trying to leave. But he could get screwed like TO.

Lets not be bandwagoneers here. Just because the man did have a bad season doesn't mean suddenly he's lost it.

Brad Johnson was efficient, but not much more (and I like Brad Johnson as a QB) for Minnesota. Minnesota, which is known for its high octane offenses, had one of the worst Os in the league. It's defense stepped it up and helped win a lot of its games while Brad Johnson helped with the leadership on offense.

But Minnesota making Brad Johnson their guy? :lol: He's a few years away from retirement. Some plan.

I would love to get Daunte.

He's an overrated bum that is the reason the Vikings didn't make the playoffs this year. His decision making sucks without Moss around to carry him.

That's amazing. I just found a quote from Wilf about the qb situation there.

19JAN06 AM Minneapolis Star Tribune : Vikings owner Zygi Wilf was asked about the future of his team's quarterback position. Wilf paused. He considered the erratic behavior of injured starter Daunte Culpepper, along with Brad Johnson 's desire to start and the growing speculation that one or both players could play elsewhere in 2006. Then Wilf smiled. "That's why I'm very happy I hired coach [Brad] Childress," Wilf said. "Because now it's his problem. It's not my problem anymore." The comment drew laughs from those gathered at Interlachen Country Club for a meeting of the Minnesota Commercial Association of Realtors. Later, Wilf reiterated that he expects Childress to rectify the complicated situation. Wilf also spoke as if both Culpepper and Johnson will remain on the roster, possibly battling for the starting job if Culpepper is healthy, and expressed admiration for Johnson's competitive spirit.
