Former NFL quarterback Daunte Culpepper told the “Orlando Sentinel” his playing days are officially behind him. The 1999 11th-overall pick of the Minnesota Vikings says the next chapter in his life involves coaching his children. Culpepper’s last NFL action came with the Detroit Lions in 2009 when he started in five games, throwing three touchdowns and six interceptions.
He spent the 2010 season in the United Football League and did not play at all last year. The 35-year-old was a three-time Pro Bowler and finished his career with over 24-thousand yards and 149 TD passes compared to 106 interceptions.
He played seven years for the Vikes before spending parts of four seasons with the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders and Lions.
