VU has learned this afternoon that the Vikings and Daunte Culpepper have reached agreement to restructure his contract -- a 10-year deal signed prior to the 2003 season.
While the exact terms have not been disclosed, the restructuring is a pre-emptive effort by the Vikings to make sure the contract numbers in the near future of the deal -- which would be the lower-paying years of the deal -- be amended to take into consideration Culpepper's status as one of the top quarterbacks in the league.
VU will follow up this story in our next update to track down more particulars and what this signing could mean to other teams and their disgruntled franchise players.
