    Right now he's still within the scheduled rehab period. However the rehab period was between 4-6 months and so far hes 4 and a half months in and he's still got pain in his knee. I'm no doctor but I don't think thats supposed to happen. Daunte has suffered setbacks in just about every set of the process so I'm not expecting this to go as planned when he himself says he still has pain. And even if he does stay on schedule, he will not be ready for training camp. Preseason is the earliest he will be back.

    And like I said before, The guy is not known as a study type of QB and has trouble reading defenses. Asking him to learn a new offense, with a new coach while he's rehabbing and then thrusting him in to play after missing two entire seasons is setting him up to fail.

    If the coaching staff feeling Culpepper can help them in the future then fine, give him time to properly finish the rehab and let him work with the 2nd team until he gets back into the swing of things and let him get some plays under his belt with the new offense and then play him next season. Don't thrust him back fast this season the way Saban did last year because we already saw what happened there.

    I just think many of you are being completely unrealistic in your expectations of the guy. I've heard on here people say a healthy Culpepper is our best option. In his prime he might have been. Right now he's a 30 year old QB under a new system who has not played for 2 years and is coming off a major injury that could affect his play. It's a bad situation for everyone to be in and expecting alot out of him in those conditions is downright dumb.

      so much for imminent. Peterson wants "Welker" compensation.

      although i agree completely with peterson about robbing NE for welker, i wouldnt give any more than a 6th rounder for green and if they want more id tell them to find someone else. i understand that cameron and shea really like the guy and all but like everyone has been saying, hes no more of a definite than DC is at this point so why give up more draft picks for an old oft-injured QB, especially when we are in prime position to draft a young QB in the first or second round.

        we wont give more then a 6th or 7th this year or 5th next most likely. Green wants to come here nowhere else and has a deal pretty much in place. We hold the chips in many respects.

          It will be at least a 4th no way you low ball Carl Peterson we have the cap room to just keep Green if need be. I know Green would like to play for Miami but he said he would not say no to a trade to the Browns either he just wants to start.

            Didn't Green say he wants to play for the Dolphins, and ONLY the Dolphins. Green holds all the chips, no team will trade for him for his current contract and if Green doesn't want to re-work his contract there isn't anything the Chiefs can do. The Dolphins and Trent basically have the deal done, all they need is the compensation.

            And there is NO WAY Green is worth anything more than a late 5th round pick, just no way. He is old, recently had some injury issues with that concussion being pretty bad, and on the decline.

                John Clayton already reported that part of the problem is that KC wants a 5th but Miami doesn't have a 5th this year so they are working on something else. Plus what the hell are we low balling. Carl Peterson is a moron to think he can get a 2nd for Green.

                Peterson keeps saying a starting QB is worth "Welker" compensation. But he doesnt realize that Green is not a starting QB. He was a part time guy last year with Huard and he is a line to be their 3rd QB this season if they don't trade him. Where in that equation does he see a starting QB? He's trading his thrid string QB and every team in the NFL knows that which is why they are only offering low picks. Nobody in the NFL pays 7.2 million for a thrid stringer. KC will unloaded him in some way before the season starts and everyone knows that so theres no way you can expect more then a low round pick.
