    what the heck is going on??? lol i'm guessing either plummer nor garcia knew about each other going there because i can't see them both accepting to fight for the starting job.

    Shanahan is calling Jake's bluff

    Seems like we're back at square one, except now the Bucs have him instead of the Broncos.

    ^ Beat me to it.
    It seems as though Tampa might have to cut him if he unretires, as they would be paying over $15 million (about $5 million each) for the three QB's on their roster.

    Perhaps Shanahan wanted Jake to go to Kubiak WHILE getting compensation? Who knows...

    It's a conditional pick. If TB cuts him I don't think Denver would get anything out it. I can't figure out why TB would still go through on the trade after signing Garcia. It's going to be interesting to watch.

    Over on the Bucs board someone made the comment that the team was trying to get as many QBs as possible to keep the Raiders from drafting Johnson with the 1st pick. Now that would be a classic move.

    So the abclocal story Vinny linked indicates Garcia's deal is in the range of $5 million per year. Plummer's cap hit is allegedly $5.3 million. Simms is allegedly getting about $5 million in 2007 too.

    odd.

    This is how Shanahan repays Kubiak for making little Shanny a QB coach?

    simms is also on the trading block.

    I think Simms is a better prospect than Carr is right now. & if the Texans are going to have to give up a draft pick, I hope we go this way.

    But, it was my understanding that we didn't want to part with a draft pick in the first place. Hopefully, we'll call all bluffs, and see if Jake is actually released.

    I read an article yesterday, that Jake was prepared to repay Denver the bonus money & what not, if he could be released, then come here.

    I don't care if he comes here or not. So I hope that we wait it out, and plan to go into '07 with Sage, BVP, & whoever at QB.

    I still don't think we should be spending any substantial amount of money on a QB right now, mainly because I don't see one I'd feel comfy paying $5million/year for .

    We should use that $5million on a combination of FA CBs, RBs, LBs, & Safeties

    The bucs are really confusing me with getting both quarterbacks. Are they just taking all they can so no one else can get one? wonder if bledsoe is next..lol

    Garcia-Plummer-Simms-Gratkowski.....hmmm very interesting to me.

    I am hearing that the Broncos went ahead and traded Plummer to the Bucs to prevent Plummer from playing for the Texans. They are forcing his hand because that would MAKE him play for the Bucs if he unretires. I wonder why the Broncos are being that way to us? I can get link if needed.

    Yep, NFL.com reports the following:


    Looks like the 2 QBs mentioned for coming here, at this point are out of the picture.

    Yes, there are a few threads around the board that talk about it....One in the NFL forum, and another in one of the threads here.

    There's a flipside to it, too. If Plummer unretires, he suddenly appears on Tampa's cap at about $5 million-plus. They may not be able to handle that and may be forced to deal him ASAP. That's from this article posted by Vinny earlier. (It's a Len Pasquarelli article also available at espn.com.)

    Weird deal all around. I don't know anything about Tampa's cap, so it may not be a problem for them. (Hey, not everybody has to keep paying Gary Walker.)

    yeah, so much for the mythical 'Texans-Broncos pipeline', 'eh?

    hey, that's our motto! But I guess we can share it. :tease:
