Three-Time Pro Bowl QB Daunte Culpepper Concedes That His Career Is Over
Daunte Culpepper returned to Central Florida on Saturday to participate in the inaugural Orlando Youth Football Clinic near the Florida Citrus Bowl. Besides providing instruction for about 200 youths ages 10 through 18, Culpepper conceded his days of playing in the NFL likely are over, Craig Castille of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Culpepper threw for more than 24,000 yards during an 11-year career. "As far as me playing, I think I am done,'' said Culpepper, 35. "That part of my book is closed. The next chapter is, I have kids and I will be coaching them. "I will be part of athletics and a part of sports, hopefully my whole life. It makes me feel good. I love to compete. Now I'll be competing in men's leagues, in basketball and softball and stuff.'' Culpepper spent seven seasons with the Minnesota Vikings before he was traded to the Miami Dolphins. After one season with the Dolphins, he played one season in Oakland and two in Detroit. He last played pro football for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL in 2010. "I am retired, obviously, and I am raising my kids and living in South Florida,'' said Culpepper, a three-time Pro Bowl selection. "That's a full-time job.''
