    Thats a shame,I think if he was not so c0cky and arrogant he would not have had such a problem in getting a backup role

    He played very well with the Raiders last year and actually helped them win the few games they did

    But he wanted a starting role and those days have gone by - Who knows that if it were not for Randy Moss would Culpepper have retired MUCH sooner?

    It will just start the 'reinstate Culpepper to reunite with Moss' talk

    The complete press release from Dante is on Adam Schefter's blog

    http://blogs.nfl.com/category/adam-schefter/

    Just received this email from Daunte Culpepper:

    Adam,
    Since I do not have a team where I can do a press conference, I chose to write what I would have said. You are the first to get this.
    – Daunte

    Farewell NFL

    I feel bad for the guy. Culpepper is walking evidence of what one bad knee injury can do to an NFL career. Good luck in other arenas of life, Daunte.

    He's only 31. Too bad for him. I wonder if not having an agent to help him stick to a team is partially to blame.

    The fact that he couldn't find a job tells me that Mike Vick will be even harder up to sign on to a team when he gets out of prison. I know job openings change season to season, this just gives me a hunch.

    I would imagine it is a big part of it. For the same reason it's a bad idea for Drew Rosenhaus to play quarterback, it's a bad idea for players to be sports agents.

    Michael Vick will never play for an NFL team again.

    Yes, he will.

    I hate the guy, but he'll play again.

    He stays in contact with Goddell.

    It doesn't have anything to do with Goodell, it's that any team that signed him would have to deal with picketing, boycotts, and bad publicity. It wouldn't be worth the headache.

    I used to go to some of the football parties at UCF when Daunte and Asante were there. He was definitely arrogant, but it made the team fun to watch. Sad to see this. I feel bad for him.

    Well, I agree and I would carry the banner to keep the SOB out of the league - But someone will sign him and if he shows HALF of the running skills he had with the Falcons he'll still be faster than most of the people in the NFL. It's about $$'s and someone will take a chance.

    He'll probably sign with a team that was terrible the year before. All that bad publicity will disappear once he starts winning games. Trust me, there will be a team out there desperate enough to sign him.
