The Bucs declined to disclose details of the meeting, which occurred in Tampa - though not at the team's training facility.
Culpepper was cleared to start last season's opener with the Dolphins, but struggled with his mobility and was sacked 21 times in the first four games. The team shut him down so he could continue rehabbing and eventually placed him on injured reserve.
When Miami traded for Trent Green six weeks ago, Culpepper became expendable.
On paper, the Bucs do not appear to have a need for Culpepper. The team already has five quarterbacks on the roster, including Jeff Garcia, Chris Simms, Bruce Gradkowski and Jake Plummer, although Plummer has said he is retiring.
