Culpepper might not be done yet

Associated Press
Daunte Culpepper wants to end his brief retirement.
The former Pro Bowl quarterback, who announced plans to quit football in early September after being frustrated over not finding work in the NFL, said Thursday heís considering a comeback. But he didnít reveal which teams may be interested in his services.
iA number of teams have contacted me since my retirement announcement and have provided some important information that has caused me to reconsider returning to the league,î Culpepper, who serves as his own agent, wrote in an e-mail. iAs much as I have enjoyed my brief break from playing, I know that I love the game and I have some unfinished business in the NFL.î
One of those teams was the Kansas City Chiefs, who contacted Culpepper but wound up signing former Jacksonville backup Quinn Gray.
Culpepper was the Minnesota Vikingsí first-round draft choice in 1999, became their full-time starter a year later, and teamed with Randy Moss to form one of the NFLís top duos. But Culpepper suffered a major injury to his right knee in October 2005, ending his time in Minnesota. He failed to regain past form during brief stints with the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders.
He talked with several teams this past offseason but didnít find any enticing offers.
