there are too many conflicting reports with where brees and culpepper are headin

100a rticles have pep goin to the phins another 100 have him to the radiers

than brees says he might miss all of 06'... some have him goin to the saints,


i hate rumours
he Vikings tried to put a Friday night deadline on a trade of Daunte Culpepper but no deal has yet to be 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.

In other Minnesota news, the Vikings made contact with Seahawks guard Steve Hutchinson and are trying to schedule a visit over the weekend. Hutchinson is the Seahawks' transition player and is going to command more than $6 million a year. The Seahawks would have seven days to match any offer.

Givens and taken away: The first weird free-agency report of the night came from Cleveland, when the team's Web site reportedly signed Patriots wide receiver David Givens and Ravens punter Dave Zastudil. The only problem was it wasn't true. Givens' agent, Brad Blank, has his client on a 7 a.m. flight to Miami to visit the Dolphins, and he almost didn't send Givens to Cleveland because of the erroneous report. Blank theorized that someone hacked into the Browns' computer, but he emphasized that no deal is done. Givens is scheduled to visit the Browns on Sunday if he doesn't sign with the Dolphins on Saturday.

D.C. lobbying players: The Redskins came out swinging. They made contact after midnight Friday with 49ers defensive end Andre Carter, Rams safety Adam Archuleta, Chiefs quarterback Todd Collins and Steelers receiver Antwaan Randle El and have them flying in as early as Saturday.

Lewis waiting: The phones were quiet for Ravens halfback Jamal Lewis on Friday night. He didn't receive any calls in the first hour after the start of free agency and doesn't have any visits scheduled at this early date.

Chargers chatting it up: The Chargers made contact with Panthers safety Marlon McCree and will have him in for a visit Saturday. The Chargers are looking to upgrade at the safety position for the second consecutive year.

They tried to talk Saints center LeCharles Bentley into a visit, but he opted for another visit, presumably with the Eagles. There is a chance the Eagles could be willing to go to $6 million a year to sign Bentley.

Feeling the Brees: The Chargers front office says it didn't pull any incentives off an offer for outgoing quarterback Drew Brees. The Chargers have been offering him a contract for more than a month, and the contract is loaded with incentives in the first year because of his offseason shoulder surgery. Public confusion occurred when San Diego reporters heard Friday that the Chargers pulled the incentives off the table. The Chargers say that the offer still remains, but Brees appears gone from San Diego.

The former Purdue quarterback has decided to make a trip to New Orleans Saturday and then visit the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

Carolina courting Witherspoon: Panthers linebacker Will Witherspoon heard from the Rams Saturday night and will be making a visit to St. Louis. Witherspoon could get a deal worth more than $5 million a year. The Panthers have been trying to negotiate a deal with him for a while. Now, they fear the Rams will sign him.

Seahawks seeking secondary help: The Seahawks contacted Giants cornerback Will Allen and will have him in for a visit this week. After cutting Andre Dyson, the Seahawks were in the market for a starting cornerback. Allen lost his job in New York to Sam Madison, who signed with the Giants Friday.

Packers focused on defensive front: The Packers called after midnight and talked Rams defensive tackle Ryan Pickett into coming in for a visit Sunday. The Packers could lose Grady Jackson in free agency. After re-signing defensive end Aaron Kampman and having the chance to draft Mario Williams with their first pick, the Packers are trying to upgrade their defensive line. The Cardinals and the Bills are also interested in Pickett.

Dream Weaver: The Houston Texans are hot after Ravens defensive end Anthony Weaver. Weaver will be one of their first interviews, and the Texans are expected to try go sign him over the weekend.

ESPN.com senior NFL writer John Clayton contributed the reporting for this article.

Taylor would probably be brought in to backup the starter, or at most, compete for the starting role.
thats the thing. Our Starters are not meant to be starters there 3rd down backs and 2nd string at best. I want somebody who is going to come in and just dominate them(Edgerign James). we dont need to sign taylor to have him sit on the bench.

and props 4 all the news

Report: New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis confirmed the long-anticipated departure of QB Aaron Brooks hours before the league's trading and free agent-signing period got off to a belated start thanks to the protracted negotiations on a new labor agreement. "We're going to move on," Loomis told SIRIUS NFL Radio. "That's what it comes down to and how we do that will be determined in the next few weeks." Loomis said it's unlikely the Saints will be able to trade Brooks.

Dolphins think Brees is their man..

Dolphins | Saban and Mueller meet with BreesSat, 11 Mar 2006 08:16:14 -0800

Alex Marvez, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban and general manager Randy Mueller traveled to Birmingham, Ala. Saturday morning, March 11, to meet with free agent QB Drew Brees (Chargers), who was scheduled to travel Saturday to New Orleans to meet with the New Orleans Saints. It's believed Saban and Mueller were concerned that Brees might cancel a scheduled trip to Miami Sunday, March 12, and sign with New Orleans after meeting with Saints officials.

CRIP, we speak the same language man, I'm a life-long Viking fan too and they need to go after a REAL running back and a good LB. Also, they need to draft a QB because Brad Johnson is not going to win alot of games for you, he will manage a game, but when needed, like against Pittsburgh and the Ravens, he fell apart.

thats what im sayinif new orleans signs Drew Brees. we can get Culpepper to Mia and then Tennese will take either Matt Leinhart or Jay cutler i think we have a chance to get one of em. sh*t if we can get Mia or Oakland first rd pick we could come away with Deangelo Williams from memphis. we havent had a real RB since Robert Smith left.
