    What does this say about the Packer's faith in Rodgers.

    You don't bring in Culpepper to mentor anybody.
    He simply isn't that kind of QB.
    The only reason you bring DC in is as a stopgate in the event that A) Rodgers gets hurt or B) Rodgers doesn't perform.

    I think the fact that Green Bay was willing to bring him in shows that they are more than a little concerned about Rodgers taking the reigns...
    That would be my guess as well. Granted Culpepper's not the brightest star in the galaxy, but him turning down the Packers doesn't tell me he necessarilly has illusions of grandeur. What it tells me that there is a team out there that even he won't play for. It doesn't say much for the Packers IMO, if he thinks that lowly of them.

    I find that funnier than him turning them down.

    Culpepper is a joke, plain and simple.
    224 times he scored a touchdown for the vikings, and that's no joke.
    If someone is will to do the math I would bet that is more than every viking on the roster combined has scored for the vikings, just a thought.

    OCALA - Daunte Culpepper did indeed turn down an offer from the Green Bay Packers, the free agent NFL quarterback confirmed Saturday, but he declined to explain exactly why.

    "It just wasn't good for either side," said Culpepper...

    "It just wasn't good for either side,"
    He knew the situation going into the meeting, so his decision comes down to the money, pure and simple. The going rate for a backup QB is $2M/yr. If GB offered that, Daunte's agent would have forced him to sign on the dotted line.

    In any event, he'll wait for a starter to go down, some lucky team will sign him and he will fumble his way through the rest of the season.

    Re: Culpepper turned down contract with Packers!

    3 pages in and nobody mentions that Culpepper probably doesn't want a 1-year contract? The guy wants job security, he's been 1-and-out in Oakland and Miami. He has enough money in the bank already, what he wants is a legit chance of being around a team long enough to try to regain a starting role.

    I doubt he'll ever get back into starting form, but this was just a generally crappy contract. Don't be naive, he will be getting a call from some team by mid-October when someone goes down with an injury, and Daunte will have more bargaining power then. Either way, he's not going to be a threat to Minnesota. Ever.

    He would if the Vikings happen to sign him again.

    Re: Culpepper turned down contract with Packers!

    The question is, why would he sign a one year contract to play for a team that has an offense that takes a minimum of 3 years to learn? Seems like a smart choice to me.
