Daunte Culpepper is Just Sad

Daunte Culpepper has confirmed reports that he turned down a 1-year, $1 million offer to back up Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay.

“It just wasn’t good for either side,” Daunte explained, adding, “I’m just waiting for the right situation for me. I’m in talks with a couple of different teams right now.”

Daunte insists that he wants to be a starter.  So what he’s saying is that there are a couple of different teams willing to at least give him a shot at being the #1 quarterback.  And these are Arena League teams?

Daunte’s problem of course is that he’s not the most diligent worker in the world.  He was MVP-caliber for a time with the Vikings because he had years to learn the system, and because he had Scott Linehan babysitting him.  To go to a new team and learn a whole offense in time to start when the season begins?  That would be hard for someone who worked their ass off…and Daunte does not work his ass off.

Daunte needs to get in tune with reality, take whatever job anyone is willing to offer him, work at it, then be ready in case of injury.  That’s the only way he’s getting back in.  No one in the NFL is silly/desperate enough to give him a crack at their starting job in camp.  Except maybe the Bears.
