Culpepper to return to Metrodome in silver and black

Former Viking Daunte Culpepper is now an Oakland Raider.

Culpepper, who was released by the Miami Dolphins last month, had been looking for a one-year deal, so he could prove that he is still a franchise quarterback. It is unclear what the terms of his deal were with the Raiders.

But the NFL Network reported the Raiders were expected to sign him to a one-year deal. The NFL Network also reported that Culpepper held a private workout for a member of the Raiders' personnel department July 30 in Florida.

Interestingly, the Raiders are scheduled to play the Vikings at the Metrodome on Nov. 18.

Given No. 1 pick JaMarcus Russell's holdout, Culpepper could take over the starting quarterback spot.

In all honesty, I hope Daunte does well. I never disliked the guy and really believe he is his own worst enemy. He never appeared to be a quarterback who liked to spend a lot of time learning the playbook and is a wonderful quarterback when he has the likes of Linehan in his ear the whole time he's on the field. I hope the Raiders aren't counting on him giving wonderful advice to Russell. Regardless, the only thing he's gonna be able to prove is that he's healthy since he's going to get hit more than David Carr has in the last 3 years. If he can take the beating, at least teams will know his knee has healed.
