Daunte Culpepper is about to be employed as a professional football player once again.
Not being able to land a job anywhere in the NFL, even as a third-stringer, has got to be tough for Culpepper, who most recently played played for the Detroit Lions. We're talking about about a two-time All-Pro, a three-three Pro Bowler and a guy who once graced the cover of Madden.
I give Culpepper a lot of credit for burying his pride and taking the UFL gig. This is a guy who retired back in 2008 when he couldn't latch on with an NFL team, so taking the huge step down to the UFL can't be easy for him. Things were never the same since his knee injury in 2006. Culpepper could have a good year with the Mountain Lions and come back to the NFL. He was brought up good by his grandmother.
Wish you luck Mr. Culpepper.
