ESPN.com reports that former Detroit Lions QB is up for trade.

Daunte obviously is on free agency because Mathew Stafford is now the starting and so now Culpepper probably has decided to not be a second string quarterback. But don't worry Daunte is still not going to be packing his bags so quick.

 "We're very happy with where we are quarterback-wise," coach Jim Schwartz said."I think [quarterback] is going to be a strength on our team, and I don't think we're in a position of getting rid of good players."

That is why they are not so quick on letting Daunte go.

I think they shouldn't let him go like coach Jim Schwartz said. With the team with all those first-round draft picks they are set and ready to go. If they were still struggling and Matthew Stafford wasn't there then they can think about it. But so far there is no reason for this to happen.

It is seemed to and maybe true that Stafford will make the team better, but if he's gone they don't need a horrible backup and with Culpepper they will have a great backup. Culpepper himself was a starting QB so there is no reason at all for this to happen.

But if Culpepper himself does want to go they basically have no choice bu to let him go. The other thing is, you have to think about where is he going to go? He doesn't have many choices some quarterbacks were kicked to backup but at least you are still playing.

I don't think that Culpepper should go in this case, but it is not up to us to decide.

But the team is fantastic the way it is it self they have great players there is nothing to change. Look we all know what happened last year and how the Lions didn't really do much at all, I mean at all 0-12 (sad).

The team is good and I hope Culpepper stays.
