Bucs Beat

Culpepper heading west



Daunte Culpepper apparently had a productive workout for with the Raiders yesterday, and the latest according to the NFL Network is that the sides are in contract talks.

Raiders coach Lane Kiffin said the team is intrigued by Culpepper, and it's believed the free agent quarterback will travel to Oakland today for another workout that will be viewed by the team's staff and front office. Monday's workout reportedly took place in Florida and was attended by just a single member of the team's personnel department.

Sounds like if the Bucs are serious about Culpepper they ought to act now. Given the physical problems Chris Simms is facing, the need is certainly there.

This will be something to watch in the coming days. Camps all over the league are underway and Culpepper soon will see what few options he has dwindle. If it's going to happen, it's probably going to be soon.
