Whispers from around the NFL

• Could the Cardinals really be interested in a deal for Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper? Our sources in the Valley of the Sun believe it's possible, but only if the Vikings come to the team with a sweet deal. As the Cardinals proved in their trade talks before the season regarding RB Travis Henry, they aren't about to overpay for anybody.

• Word from Buffalo is that QB J.P. Losman has irritated many of his teammates with his attitude. He also has angered the local media with his refusal to talk to them in recent weeks.
