Former Lion says Culpepper will start at QB

BY Alex Marvez • February 15, 2009

Daunte Culpepper didn't win a game as Detroit's starting quarterback in 2008, but one of his former teammates says he will have the chance to end that losing streak this coming season.

Ex-Lions wide receiver Mike Furrey said Culpepper will return under center heading into the 2009 campaign.

"I've spoken to a couple of my friends who are backups there and I know [the Lions] are going to name Daunte Culpepper as the starter," Furrey said during a Sunday morning appearance on Sirius NFL Radio.
