Ravens weigh pursuit of Culpepper

June 08, 2007|By Jamison Hensley | Jamison Hensley,Sun Reporter

The Ravens wouldn't be the leading candidate to sign soon-to-be released Daunte Culpepper, but they have not eliminated the possibility of adding the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback, a league source said.

Because the Ravens are committed to Steve McNair as their starter, it's unsure whether Culpepper would want to come here since he might have an opportunity to compete for a starting job elsewhere, the source added.

Culpepper, who is expected to be cut by the Miami Dolphins, has been linked to the Ravens because McNair is 34 and backup Kyle Boller is only signed through this season.

The Ravens, though, have not actively pursued Culpepper. They passed him over last year to acquire McNair instead.

Culpepper has asked for his release after the Dolphins traded for Trent Green. In his first season with Miami last year, Culpepper played in only four games.
