Daunte Culpepper Retires

Breaking news from the NFL Network. Daunte Culpepper has announced his retirement from the league. In an email he sighted his inability to land a job as the reason for his retirement. The email was actually quite sad as Culpepper expressed extreme disappointment at not being able to resurrect his career.

I always thought that Culpepper was a quarterback that greatly beneifited from the system he played under in Minnesota and having Randy Moss didn't hurt either. Although I saw some flashes of ability left last season when he was with the Raiders and I'm a little surprised that no one picked him up as a solid backup.

Here are his career numbers:

Completions - 1,867

Attempts - 2,927

Completion Percentage - 63.8

Yards - 22,422

Average - 7.7

TD - 142

INT - 94

Rating - 89.9
