Vikes get bitten: The Vikings overplayed their hand a bit Friday by putting a deadline on three of the teams they were talking to in trade conversations for quarterback Daunte Culpepper.

All three had the perception from the Vikings that one of the teams were offering a second-round pick.

The Raiders dropped out and were only considering a conditional third-round choice before they got too heavy into the bidding. The Dolphins weren't going to go that high, but might have been willing to give a solid third.

Titans general manager Floyd Reese officially notified the Vikings that he is no longer interested and won't do any more bidding for Culpepper. Reese labeled the talks exploratory and said he liked the current group of Titans quarterbacks. He said that the Titans will concentrate on longer term solutions in the future as opposed to a short-term acquisition.

Might as well keep him, it's not worth throwing talent out the window by cutting him.
