  • Daunte Culpepper: 'I think I'm done' with NFL

    Free agent Daunte Culpepper conceded to the Orlando Sentinel that he's finished playing in the NFL.
    The 49ers considered signing Culpepper in 2011 training camp, but only to be a third-stringer behind Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick. They eventually went in another direction (Scott Tolzien). "As far as me playing, I think I am done," said Culpepper, 35. "That part of my book is closed. The next chapter is, I have kids and I will be coaching them." The 11th overall pick in the 1999 draft, Culpepper was a three-time Pro Bowler and finished his career with a 149:106 TD-to-INT ratio, along with 34 more rushing touchdowns.

    Sad to see his career end the way it did (injuries/never able to recover from injuries).

    I met him in college (went to UCF with him). He was pretty quiet for being the Big Man On Campus.

      I liked watching him as a player with Moss in the Viking Era, but it is more like the NFL is done with him than as if he had a choice to keep playing.
