However, Plummer, said he would retire, nixing the deal. He has told friends and family he's leery of going through another potential quarterback controversy.

"That might be part of it," Eric said. "I'm not sure he wants to pick up and move to a new town, learn a new system and repeat the whole cycle."

Thats why I wouldn't want him to play for the Texans! He has always been the same way.

Plummer announced his retirement today on his website. Maybe this is some tactic to end up in Houston.

Here is the address to his site announcing his retirement today.

Seems like a tactic to end up in Houston. Some sites are posting that he filed the paperwork and has filed a grievance with the NFLPA.

I can see where he's coming from. If he's going to be on the road in the NFL and gone from his family for another year he wants to know that he will be the starter. It makes sense from his standpoint.

wtf?

Keep in mind that this is his brother talking, not Jake. I only linked it up to answer the question "where does this come from?".

other brother starts talking
There should be no more mixed signals. Plummer is finished with football.

"Jake loved football, but at the same time, he did not like the other aspects that came with being a professional quarterback," said Brett Plummer, Jake's oldest brother.

"He didn't like the quarterback limelight. He just wanted to hang out and be a regular guy.

"And, also, in spite of playing such a physically demanding position for 10 years, Jake is in good health. He wants to leave with his health intact because there's other things he wants to do. He's into backpacking and handball and he wants to start a family. He wants to make sure he's healthy enough to play one-on- one with his kid in the backyard."

Fittingly, Plummer's retirement will not be a clean break. The NFL Players Association is expected to file a grievance against the contingency trade, arguing a retired player cannot be dealt. The Broncos may try to retrieve up to $5 million in prorated signing bonus from Plummer.

Jake marchers to a different drummer. He was raised in what was basically a commune and has a lot of his moms ideals. He is thinking of doing things like the Peace Corp etc. He is very enviromentaly involve (drives a Honda Element) and may do something down that path. To expect Jake to act like most folks, would not give you a very solid idea of what he might be doing.

I heard on the radio that he and Pat Tillman were best friends while in Arizona together and that they shared many of the same ideals as well.

EDIT:
