    Dolphins were Sniffing around Culpepper for awhile

    Dolphins still in Culpepper sweepstakes: As the possibility of quarterback Dante Culpepper's split from the Minnesota Vikings grows stronger, the Miami Dolphins still remain a potential suitor for the Florida native, a source said Tuesday.
    The Dolphins began inquiring about Culpepper before former Dolphins offensive coordinator Scott Linehan left for the Houston Texans, the source said.

    Sounds like Miami has some reservations about Culpepper....and Culpepper is wanting too much money...I say PASS.

    According to Alex Marvez from the Sun-Sentinel:

    "A source said the Dolphins are expected to show strong interest should Drew Brees not re-sign with San Diego.

    The Dolphins don't appear to have nearly as strong an attraction to Minnesota quarterback Daunte Culpepper, who is reportedly being shopped.

    Two sources said the Dolphins have character concerns about Culpepper, who is facing a misdemeanor charge of lewd and indecent behavior stemming from a party on a charter boat last October in the Minneapolis area. Culpepper also is still recovering from a serious knee injury and would require draft-pick compensation to acquire unless released by the Vikings."

    AND...

    "If unable to land an established starter and an agreement can be reached with Frerotte on a restructured contract, a source said the Dolphins may pursue Arizona quarterback Josh McCown.

    Under that scenario, the 26-year-old McCown would compete with Frerotte for a starting spot."

    Sorry if this has already been reported and/or if it is in the wrong forum. Too much information about possible outcomes so I felt it was safer to put it here.

    Good luck guys. I like Brees if Healthy. He is one of those players you cant hate, even if he becomes a Dolphin.
