C-pepp is going to probably be ready for training camp. You are using info that is months old. and if C-pepp goes to Zona, on my board he's back to the #3....maybe even the #2.


I agree. IF he's completely 100% healthy before training camp and IF he goes to AZ to throw to the best WR tandem in the league, CPepp is definitely a 2nd round or 3rd round pick. ;-7

Problem is that he's on Minnesota right now and will most likely not even be healthy for the start of the season let alone training camp. THIS is reality...not fantasy.

Minneapolis Star Tribune columnisy Sid Hartman: "There is no question in the mind of injured Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper that he will be healthy and ready to take part in training camp when it opens in July in Mankato."

Now I don't know if he will quite make the start of camp but he sure plans on trying. Regular season looks solid.

Umm just so you guys know the injury that Cpepp had, which was torn ACL, PCL, and MCL ligaments takes a MINIMUM of a year to recover. There is no way Cpepp is back by camp, and I wouldn't be shocked if he isn't back until midway through next season.

Daunte is confident he will play....of course, his doctors might have a totally different opinion.

Some have questioned whether Culpepper will be able to start training camp in August with the mobility he had before the injury. Not to worry, he said.

I definitely will, he said. My doctor fixed my leg aggressively, and did what he could so I could play the way I like to play. Those were his exact words. That s all I needed to hear.

everything i've read said he'll take 9 months to COMPLETELY recover. 9months has him in training camp.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
