    Buccaneers acquire Griese from Bears for draft pick; link:

    Is their goal to grab every QB in the NFL?

    They probably figure that if they can't have a passing game they don't want any other team in the NFL to be able to pass the ball.

    Unfortunately for them, they are taking the QBs no one even wants anyways.

    I like Gradkowski, I don't really understand this pickup.

    Seems to be a logical plan.

    Gruden must not think Gradkowski is ready at all, or he isn't really looking at him as a QB of the future.

    What's the benefit of Griese if you have Garcia, though?

    In my opinion, Gradkowski is good enough to be a backup. Are they going to keep Griese as a #3?

    Me too. I keep wondering what Griese is worth. Are they collecting medicore QBs?

    Seems like Gruden's trying to find another Rich Gannon.

    Let them cut Gradkowski, we pick him up and send Sage to Minn for that 3rd rounder.

    Runs out of room with door slamming behind him.

    Since Jake Plummer is part of the equation at the QB position in TB and may be relevant to us in off season discussions

    It's all part of my master plan to sign a left handed QB and get rid of our need for a franchise LT

    I believe it is Gruden's plan to sign all the backup QBs in the league, so that come mid-season as starting QBs begin to get dinged up, he can hold the league ransom!

    Either that or he looks at QB's like we do at RB's.

    Not a bad theory. I'm personally routing for a dual QB offensive system, or the sudden emergence of Griese as a HB...

    I'm flumouxed. Can't see what they're up to (giving draft picks away for players who aren't needed, there must be a masterplan somewhere...).

    They've been down this road before with Griese and it didn't work then. I wonder why they think it will work now?

    He loves average QBs.
