Quarterback Daunte Culpepper announced his retirement in a letter to the media on Thursday. Culpepper who most recently played with the Oakland Raiders had sent an open letter to the entire league just a week ago offering his services to anyone who would take him. After finding no bites on his letter, Dante thought it would best best to move on to the next phase of his life. Daunte Culpepper's career has been in a downward spiral ever since he tore his ACL in 2006. That was a horrific injury that he suffered. He was then cut by the Vikings and landed in Miami where he felt the need to prove himself and he returned too early. Dante never came close to his near record breaking form of just a couple seasons earlier. As a result Culpepper became a journeyman QB.
