The 11th pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, quarterback Daunte Culpepper set a new record in 2004, for the most total yardage produced by a quarterback in a single season (5,123 yards). During a seven-season tenure with the Vikings, he threw for 20,162 yards and 135 touchdowns. Culpepper achieved a passer rating above 96 and earned Pro Bowl nods for the 2000, 2003 and 2004 seasons. But in 2005, he suffered a severe knee injury, and was never the same player after that.
He played for three more teams, as well as a brief stint in the UFL, before retiring. Culpepper popped up in the news recently, after SunTrust Bank filed a foreclosure lawsuit on his 9,867-foot home in Broward County, Florida.
