MIAMI (AP) -- Daunte Culpepper, who starred for the Minnesota
Vikings before suffering a major knee injury in 2005, never
returning to his past Pro Bowl form, retired from the NFL on
Culpepper completed 64 percent of his passes in a nine-year
career, with 142 touchdowns. He tried to resuscitate his career
with the Miami Dolphins in 2006 and the Oakland Raiders last
season, struggling in both of those stops, and wasn't in training
camp with any teams this year.
"Since I was not given a fair chance to come in and compete for
a job, I would rather move on and win in other arenas of life,"
