AP reports it now seems that the Vikings will trade troubled QB Daunte Culpepper to the highest bidder, which could be Oakland or Baltimore, in early March. The Raiders have the No. 6 pick and the Ravens No. 13 in April's draft. Arizona and Miami also could be in the running. Raiders owner Al Davis has an affinity for reclamation projects. Moving Culpepper for at least a first-round draft pick and a bona fide starter would solve the Vikings' quarterback conflict, allowing QB Brad Johnson, who would be 38, to start in HC Brad Childress' West Coast offense next season. The Vikings then would have to use a first-round pick to draft a QB to develop and sign a veteran backup, perhaps free agent QB Chris Weinke of the Carolina Panthers and St. Paul. You have to wonder whether Culpepper's recent 45-minute phone conversation with Childress went sour. So I'm thinking Raiders trade #6 to Vikes for Culpepper, reuniting him with Moss. They trade up with us to get a QB -- we then own #6 and #17. There's a lot you could do with that.
