Culpepper announced his retirement at the young age of 31 earlier this season because of his frustration of not getting more than one-year offers during the offseason after he left the Oakland Raiders.The Chiefs ended up signing Quinn Gray after placing Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard on the injured reserve list. Though Culpepper didn't jump at that opportunity this week, he's willing to listen to any chance to return to the league that makes sense to him. "A number of teams have contacted me since my retirement announcement and have provided some important information that has caused me to reconsider returning to the league," Culpepper said in an e-mail. "As much as I have enjoyed my brief break from playing, I know that I love the game and I have some unfinished business in the NFL. It has never been because of a lack of passion for the game but rather the absence of a fair opportunity to complete and play that caused me to retire.
