Trying to jog my mind about what teams need quarterbacks, I'd have to start in the AFC East with the Fins and Jets. I realize Frerotte is in Miami, but is he really an answer to anything substantial? The guy is on the downside of a moderately productive career as a backup, where Culpepper might just be a nice fit to get the passing game under way with Chambers and McMichael already in place. The Jets have some serious issues to address where Pennington's arm in concerned. Honestly, how much longer are they going to place their future in the hands of a guy who can't stay on the field for more than half a season? The
Titans could use a guy, but it's safe to say they'll take a long look at drafting someone with their 1st round pick, so Culp really doesn't make sense there. The Ravens seem so intent on sticking with Boller, but for how much longer? They're trying to clear room by dumping almost everything that isn't tied down, so getting Culpepper makes almost no sense from that perspective.
Ah, who else in the AFC needs a quarterback...well, the Raiders we've already discussed. I think that covers the AFC. As for the NFC, the Cardinals are a possibility and that would reunite Culpepper with Green. I don't think that's a bad option, but will Bidwell shell out the cash? A healthy Culpepper with Fitz and Boldin to throw to would be very interesting from a fantasy perspective! I just don't see that happening since they seem to have some faith in Warner and we all know Warner still thinks he can play the game.
Detroit? No, the Vikes wouldn't trade within their division. The Aints? I'm thinking the Saints are looking to draft a quarterback rather than shell out for Culpepper. I guess that just about covers it. If I had to put money on where he'd end up, I'd say the Fins would make for a nice home. Besides, Culpepper went to school in Florida, why not come full circle?
