Daunte Culpepper (born January 28, 1977 in Ocala, Florida) is an American football player and currently is the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. He has earned selection to the Pro Bowl several times, and is considered one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL today. His quickness and large build are considered a great advantage at his position. Culpepper was drafted by the Vikings in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft (11th overall) out of the University of Central Florida. In the Vikings' 2004 season, he broke the franchise record of most touchdown passes in a season with 37 as of Week 16 of the regular season (the previous record was 34, set by Randall Cunningham in 1998).
He once walked 5 yards on his hands to win a wager of $500 from a fellow Viking.
Daunte also appeared on the cover of a Madden 2002 computer game.
