Miami Quarterback

The Miami Dolphins traded a second round draft pick for Minnesota Vikings Quaterback Daunte Culpepper. I love this trade. Sure I was excited about the possibility of Drew Brees ending up in Miami, but in no way would I consider Culpepper to be a second choice. I just hadn't thought about Culpepper ending up in Miami. This should be a great fit. Being raised in Florida and going to school at Central Florida should make Daunte Culpepper a very popular home town favorite.

I just hope that Culpepper's knee has healed. His season ended last October when he tore three ligaments (ACL, MCL and PCL) in his right knee. The Vikings report that he was ahead of schedule in his rehab. The Dophins organization are apparently convinced that he will be ready to play this season since they terminated the contract of their starting quarterback - Gus Frerotte.

If we can get Ricky Williams to stay off the field this should be fun season to be a Dolphins fan.

The Dolphin's Website has a brief rundown of Daunte Culpepper's impressive career here.
