Miami severed ties with QB Daunte Culpepper yesterday, terminating his contract without arbitration after a decidedly unspectacular year with the Dolphins. Culpepper was sidelined for most of last season, and only threw for 64.2 percent in his occasional play. Yesterday's move was not unexpected, however: Miami recently nabbed QB Trent Green from Kansas City.
The 30-year-old three-time Pro Bowler, reportedly being courted by Jacksonville, is optimistic about his future in the NFL. In a recent press release, the QB consoled himself with some timeless wisdom from Mohandas Gandhi: "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win." It is not clear, however, whether Culpepper's path will be just as four-fold.
