Does he realize Moss is in New England?

This is a big pick up for the Raiders since Russell is holding out. Other than that I think the move has little significance.

I'm amazed at those that think he's washed up. He's only 30, he's got plenty of good years left as long as his health holds up. He rushed back last year from injury and it showed. If he's back to 100% I think he'll rebound quite nicely.

You know, I was waiting for someone to post the same thing. The guy is still relatively young. He came back too early from that injury.

If anything, he'll be playing for a large contract this year.

Once a mobile quarterback (i.e. Brunell) starts experiencing knee problems, its pretty much over. Culpepper like Brunell likes to roll out of the pocket and throw in stride, Culpepper is not a pocket qb. I'm not trying to bash him, I always liked the guy and think he has gotten a raw deal, I hope he can adapt and flourish with the raiders

I guess this will add experience since Jamarcus Russell is a rookie and hasnt signed and that other guy (Walter I think) hasnt really played. Dont expect him to be the new "franchise quarterback"

I don't expect him to see the field in the regular season.

He's done.

Re: Raiders Pick Up Culpepper
 
If he makes it on the field I would expect more of the same... Raiders opponents sacked their QB 72 times last season. [url=http://www.nfl.com/teams/stats/OAK/2006/regular]NFL.com - Oakland Raiders Team Stats[/url] With limited mobility, I don't think he'll be productive. Also he doesn't really have a good receiving core to throw to... (yards/stats 06 season)

Re: Raiders Pick Up Culpepper
 
he got signed as a message to Russel to get into camp, and as insurance if Russel gets hurt.

Re: Raiders Pick Up Culpepper
 
I wonder how Josh McCown and Andrew Walter are gonna take. i know they are not gonna keep 4 QBs on the roster. i say that Andrew Walter gets cut and Culpeper backs up Russell and McCown gets the 3rd string spot.

Re: Raiders Pick Up Culpepper
 
I think this is a great move. First of all, it sends a message to Russell - don't think you're the one and only. Secondly, Culpepper is only 30 and nearly 2 years removed from that injury. He still has a great NFL body and a missle launcher for an arm, plus plenty of experience. It's also low-risk for Oakland- 1 year deal, not a lot of money, why not? If he works out they got a great bargain. If McGahee can recover from his shredded knee and become an elite RB anyway, why can't Daunte return to form? If he does he probably has 4-5 very good years left in him.They are coming off one of the most miserable offensive seasons EVER, can't hurt to bring in a guy 2 seasons removed from throwing 39 TDs. He's got a career passer rating of 91 as well. Good job Oakland, IMO.
