Daunte On The Trade Block?

Shawn DhaniCorrespondent ISeptember 9, 2009

The Lions officially made Matthew Stanford their starting QB on Monday, and there is some thought that backup Daunte Culpepper is now expendable.

Certainly there are teams with worse options at backup QB out there.

And the Lions still have some pretty big holes to fill that could be addressed via trade.

Hold your horses, sports fan.

As Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News notes, the Lions might not be so quick to send Daunte packing.

We're very happy with where we are quarterback-wise,"

Lions coach Jim Schwartz told the News.

"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."

Sure, but last we checked only one QB can play at a time, and a trade might help the team in the long run.

I'll write more about it when I hear anything else on this drama story.

I think Culpepper may go to the same path as Tarvaris Jackson but with more luck.
