But the Vick situation could be a drawn-out process and when you look at teams currently faced with uncertainty at quarterback -- and who might give Culpepper a chance to start -- I find Oakland intriguing. Of course, the Raiders' No. 1 draft pick, Jamarcus Russell, will start sooner or later. But the veteran safety net in Oakland at the moment is Andrew Walter (3 TD passes, 13 interceptions in '06). If the Raiders choose to bring in Culpepper, they could justify paying him near starter money in what will be a hybrid role as interim starter/veteran insurance policy.
