Speculation about the Vikes being near a deal with a new QB (Shane Matthews?) was confirmed Thursday…
Bouman Traded to 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.
