More QB news



Daunte_2 Because it wouldn't be right to go a day without some quarterback news around here, here's the latest from Jon Gruden.

Regarding Daunte Culpepper, Gruden warned against reading too much into his meeting with the free agent who was recently released by the Dolphins. Gruden said the team was "looking into his situation," but said "nothing is imminent."

And regarding Jake Plummer, Gruden hasn't given up hope the quarterback won't show despite his failure to report on Thursday. Gruden also disclosed that he traveled to Plummer's home state of Idaho to meet with the quarterback, to "look into his eyes."

Still, it appears Plummer has no intentions of playing football in the forseeable future, according to Gruden. But, Gruden said, "men have been known to change their minds.

"We're trying to convince him to continue playing."
