The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent QB Daunte Culpepper, Raiders Head Coach Lane Kiffin announced after this afternoon's Training Camp practice at the team's Napa Valley Training Complex. The 6'4", 265-pound Culpepper spent last season with the Miami Dolphins. Culpepper, who is entering his ninth season in the NFL, spent the first seven years of his NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings.
"We are very excited to have Daunte, and add him to the mix and see if he can help us," Coach Kiffin said. "We think that he adds definite competition."
The former Central Florida star has played in 85 league games with 84 starts, and has completed 1,759 or 2,741 pass attempts for 21,091 yards, 137 TDs, and 89 INTs. His best season came in 2004 when he threw for 4,717 yards and 39 touchdowns.
Culpepper was originally selected in the first round (11th overall) of the 1999 NFL Draft by Minnesota
Hell, they might even try for Pac Man Jones when he's through with his legal troubles.
Culpeppers antics off the field are equivalent if not worse than Vick's. He once got a "lap dance" from a stripper at a boat party.
Funny, I was born in Oakland (long time ago) and graduated from UCF when it was still FTU & had a 7K student body, so I ought to think of this as some sort of harmonic convergence. But I don’t. As a Raiders fan I have been out in the wilderness too long to still have the faith.
I was living in Tampa when the Tooz was at the University of Tampa.
Those days are gone forever, over a long time ago, oh yeah.
Maybe in some respects it’s a blessing in disguise that I was born after the “good ol’ days” of the team back in the 70’s and early 80’s? When a lot of guys I talk to mention Stabler, Tooz, Plunkett, Branch, George Atkinson, and so on, I have little to add except “boy, that must have kicked ass!” because I wasn’t alive to remember anything before Bo Jackson.
Hopefully we’ll get back to...well at least winning more than two games.
What’s the big deal with a lap dance compared to killing animals for Vick’s demented pleasures?
I never did get the significance of the lap dancing anyway. Is that supposed to be against the law or something?
Not checking the schedule, I hope the Dolphins play them this year (even if it's in Oakland).
Raiders v. Dolphins will be in Miami on Sept 30 (I believe).
In the late 60s and into the 70s, IMO the Raiders were one of the most exciting teams in pro ball to watch. Wide open offense. George Blanda was amazing coming in late in the game week after week to pull them out. I swear that when this 40+ old man trotted on the field in middle of the 4th quarter it must have psyched out the opposing defenses.
If you ever get a chance to see tapes of some of his 4th quarter exploits, you must do so.
40-year Viking fan here. Good luck with this guy. Keep him away from boats.
Why didn’t they just go for that midget Doug Flutie?
My Raiders have seen better days, I hope he works out.
And the Vegas over/under line still has the Rai-DUHS holding fast at 3 1/2 wins this year.
Ya’ll are in a “black hole”, alright—as long as that jumpsuit-wearing pimp of an owner still has breath, he’s still gonna screw ya’ll over, and ya’ll will still suck it up cause it’s all about the rep of the fans, right?
Denver Broncos Fan...(19-5 against the “Commitment to Excrement” in the Shanahan era...)
Well we don’t call you the Denver Jackasses for nothing.
Ah yes. “Bitter, party of one!”
I was at that game. Did anyone notice how he shuffled after every interception?
No, George is my first name.
