Lions GM: Culpepper the starter if season began today

Among the topics Lions GM Martin Mayhew touched on following the conclusion of the team’s rookie orientation Sunday was the upcoming training camp battle between quarterback Daunte Culpepper and No. 1 overall pick Matthew Stafford. The Detroit Free Press reports Mayhew said that if the season began today, Culpepper would likely be the team’s starter.

“It’s May,” Mayhew said. “We’ve got plenty of time to figure all that out. Daunte is a guy who’s a vet. He’s been around. He’s a pro, and I trust Daunte. He’s got a lot of ability, and I anticipate that if we had something to do today, Daunte would be the guy today. But we’ve got a lot of time to work, and we’ll see how it goes.”
