It appeared that Daunte Culpepper and the Lions would part ways at the end of another painful season.
Just a few days removed from a solid Week Seventeen start, however, there is mutual interest at a reunion.
“I am honored that the Lions would consider bringing me back,” Culpepper wrote after hearing that Lions G.M. Martin Mayhew is open to bringing Culpepper back.
(Drew Stanton, on the other hand, sound like he has mixed feelings about returning.)
Culpepper appears to have accepted that a starting opportunity is not coming around the corner. He’s smart to realize a gig backing up Matthew Stafford wouldn’t be so bad.
Maybe he’ll even play on Thanksgiving next year.
