Could Daunte Culpepper be seeing cheeseheads as his next team of choice? That could be one possibility, as ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that Culpepper may end up in the frozen tundra this season, serving as the backup for “one more year” QB Brett Favre.
The part that could get a little dicey is that if Favre, who year after year seems to want to stay as the QB of the Packers, decides NOT to retire after the 2007 season. Culpepper, who says his knee is fully recovered, for sure would not want to sit the bench in Green Bay for more than a season behind Favre.
The other question would be what would happen to former Packers first-round pick Aaron Rodgers, who for the past few seasons has been patiently waiting for his shot to take over when Favre finally steps away. In two seasons Rodgers has played in just five games, throwing only 31 passes in those two game. He has yet to throw a pro touchdown.
Of course the report could be simply to get another team that reportedly been in the mix, the Jacksonville Jaguars, even more intense on trying to get Culpepper on their team. The big thing now as well is what decision the league makes about the grievence that Culpepper filed, trying to get his release from Miami.
