Jim Flynn, of PewterReport.com, reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have called a 1:00 p.m. ET press conference Saturday, March 3, where the team is expected to announce the signing of free agent QB Jeff Garcia (Eagles).

Wonder what the raiders will do now?

Garcia is a solid veteran and a positive voice and face in the lockeroom! They need to fill a lot more wholes before this team becomes a team that can even make the playoffs though!

Thats really a surprise, Garcia wants to be a starter and that must mean that Chris Simms is not ready or something might be up with him.

This does help us out with a possibility of moving Joey to Denver.

BRONCOS ANNOUNCE TRADE OF PLUMMER TO TAMPA
In a move that can only be described as bizarre, the press release announcing the acquisition of defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson by the Broncos also states that quarterback Jake Plummer has been traded to Tampa for a conditional pick in the 2008 draft.
The release, which was forwarded to us by Adam Caplan of Scout.com, says: "The Denver Broncos on Saturday traded quarterback Jake Plummer to Tampa Bay in exchange for a conditional selection in the 2008 NFL Draft, Head Coach Mike Shanahan announced. Denver also acquired defensive tackle Dan Wilkinson from Miami in exchange for the Broncos' own sixth round pick (24th in round) in the 2007 NFL Draft."
Apparently, the Bucs have opted to squat on Plummer's rights. If he truly retires, the Broncos would likely get nothing. If Plummer decides not to quit, then the Broncos get a pick in 2008 based on, potentially, Plummer's playing time or performance.
So, as a practical matter, the Bucs now have Plummer, Jeff Garcia, and Chris Simms under contract.
And if Plummer follows through on his apparent plan to retire, the Bucs will have the ability to recoup the remainder of any unallocated signing bonus money from Plummer, even though Tampa didn't pay out the bonus.

The Broncos had to get Plummer's salary off the books so this makes sense. I guess the Bucs won't be drafting Quinn now.....so I think the only teams who could muck it up for us are the Vikings and Texans (as far as taking Quinn). :tongue:​
