MIAMI (TICKER) -- Daunte Culpepper took another step toward leaving the Miami Dolphins for good on Friday.

Escorted off the practice field by a member of the club's security staff, Culpepper said he would not agree to a trade.

While he will not accept a trade, Culpepper likely will be released in the coming days.

"I will not agree to any trade," the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback told the Miami Herald. "I definitely expect to be released."

It already has been a whirlwind week for Culpepper, who was told by the Dolphins that they were going "in another direction" at quarterback after the club acquired Trent Green from the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday.

Culpepper showed up at the Dolphins minicamp practice Friday. According to a report in the Miami Herald, Culpepper said the Dolphins told him during a meeting in front of the whole team he had no future with the team and would not be able to practice with the team, other than individual drills.

Culpepper left the field midway through the practice, escorted by Stu Weinstein, the Dolphins security chief.

Acquired from the Minnesota Vikings, Culpepper's first season in South Beach in 2006 was riddled by injuries, as he was limited to five games due to knee problems suffered while still in the "Twin Cities". The former Central Florida standout underwent reconstructive surgery on the knee midway through the 2005 campaign.

Culpepper now will join the likes of Jay Fiedler, Gus Frerotte and Joey Harrington as signal-callers who could not overcome the shadow left by Hall of Famer Dan Marino.

He was overrated anyway, 1 great season in the twin cities and a bunch of shitty ones. They are better off with Trent Green although the Dolphins need a hell of alot more than just him.

I agree he was overrated..same as McNabb. Huge slap in the face though. I think the Dolphins are going to be pretty good though.

The Dolphins screwed up when they passed on Brady Quinn. It was the most obvious choice in the draft.

I totally agree. I thought he was a lock there. Im still not sure why they didnt draft him.

Thats the same tune I heard from all the experts about this time last year and the Dolphins turned out to be seriously sorry, it will be same again this year.

Its all a moot point though, S.B. champs for 08 reside in Foxboro, MA, they are stacked and barring catastrophic injuries could go undefeated.

I disagree. They have brought in too many free agents and the chemistry wont be there anymore. I think they will make the playoffs but thats it.
