I knew it had been a horrific injury, but didn't realize it was THAT bad until I read this: "The Miami Dolphins want to trade Culpepper. Culpepper wants to be released so he can work out a deal with the team of his choice. Some Lions fans are piling on because Lions coach Rod Marinelli is not interested in Culpepper. Culpepper tore three ligaments in his right knee during the 2005 season and was traded to Miami. The Dolphins tried to rush him back, and he injured his kneecap and had a second surgery to ease the pain. My guess is he will never be the same. I've spoken to people who say he walks on egg shells and believe he won't be 75 percent of his former self. He won't be able to get push off his legs to throw the long balls that once crushed the Lions. The Lions are right in taking a pass." http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070611/SPORTS08/706110357/1004/SPORTS A lot of conjecture and opinion there, but day-umn... a Culpepper at less than 75% ain't worth much. No long ball, no mobility, small hands to fumble with, and a hard time reading defenses. AWESOME! I'm sure if Casserly was a GM somewhere he'd be scrambling to trade a 1st or 2nd round pick for him.
