Former Raiders QB Culpepper Confirms Turning Down the Pack


For some reason Daunte Culpepper must think he is a better QB than he is. Otherwise, why would have he recently turned down a reported one-year offer to go play for a playoff contender – the Green Bay Packers. The story hit a few days ago about Culpepper turning the offer down, but the QB today confirmed it.

“It just wasn’t good for either side,” said Culpepper. “I hope that, you know, that’s what I want (to be a starting QB), in a perfect world. But we’ll see what happens, I’m just waiting for the right situation for me. I’m in talks with a couple of different teams right now.”

Let’s see, Culpepper didn’t exactly light it up last season when he played for the Raiders. It took him awhile to finally get a shot at the starting job, only getting it when Josh McCown got hurt. Then, when he did have a chance to play, he was blah at beat. He played in 7 games, throwing for 1331 yards, 5 TD’s and 5 picks. He had an average QB rating of 78.

The former Vikings and Dolphins QB is his own agent, and if he likes it or not, he’s costing himself money by thinking higher of himself then he is. The 31-year-old has been a shell of a QB since tearing his knee three years ago, and he’d better stop turning offers down – before he finds himself watching games from his living room this fall.
