The Vikings announced this afternoon that backup QB Todd Bouman has been traded to the New Orleans to the New Orleans Saints.
While the team has not disclosed the terms of the deal, VU has been told by a Saints source that the deal will involve a sixth-round draft pick in next month's draft and possibly a conditional pick in 2004 depending on how much playing time Bouman receives.
VU has also been told that the trade was likely predicated on the team reaching an agreement with a veteran quarterback -- as reported earlier, VU was told by a Bucs source that Shane Matthews had a two-year deal from the Vikings on the table.
VU will get additional information for our next update.
