What a *****. He still had a lot left to offer a team.

Do you think his ego was destroyed by the Cutler thing?

Anyway, what a *****.

Wow. A QB with at least 4 decent years left decided to retire rather than come to your city. Eat it up, Bucs!!!

Jake the Snake would rather retire than play for Jon Gruden and what he's done with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Sounds about right.

Im glad he retired, it was a dumb trade. I dont'see why you'd trade for Plummer and his salary instead of just signing Garcia.

Agreed. Good point.

He's probably just trying to force his release...

I'm not sure I see how retiring helps him. Don't they still retain his rights and no longer have to cut him on June 1?

I have this nagging feeling that he wants a say in his destination, and the so-called retirement is just leverage. Perhaps Houston?

There's talk/speculation/ in league circles that Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer is using the retirement card as a ploy to get traded to Houston.

Though there was a report a week ago out of Denver that Plummer could pack it in, there was no hard evidence that he might quit until after news broke that Plummer would be traded to the Bucs for a fourth-round pick.

If Plummer retires, he'd potentially owe the team the portion of any signing bonus that applies to the three remaining years of his contract. And the Broncos have a history of playing hardball in matters of this nature -- just ask Dale Carter, Daryl Gardener, Eddie Kennison, and Ashley Lelie.

Anything to keep him away from Houston.

I cant believe he would retire, he still has a few good years left in him.

I guess he is tired of making bonehead plays. so now he made a bonehead decision in retiring

Yes, we have his rights for a full year, and the cap hit we would've taken should no longer apply. We lose the draft pick, but this should put us in a MUCH better position salary-wise.

basically, i laugh in his face for thinking he'll somehow still be marketable in a year after sitting out this season.


Is it true that he is going to come back? Or is he really retiring for good?

He will come out of retirements just before the training camp. I assure you and he will get cut or traded at that time.

wow. Jake must be stupid. He actually had chance of starting over in tampa and decides to chicken out? Wat the hell is wrong with that guy?

Anyway, time for me to go have a drink with my friends, have a nice day everyone!

Plummer wants to dictate his own future as to where he wants to play next year and this is the reason I opted to retire right now.

He will come out of retirements just before the training camp begins and he will get cut by the broncos then he will end up in Houston with Kubiak.

I don't think Denver wants to carry a QB as a back up who will make more then 7 MM.

If being paid your full multi-million salary for holding your clipboard and rooting for Jay Cutler to do a better job is a form of punishment, then that's punishment I wouldn't mind being served on myself.

i think that if he comes back after we've addressed all the positions on the team, shanny wouldn't think twice about keeping him on the roster all year just for screwing the team over.

I agree. He'd better be serious about retiring, otherwise he's just putting himself in a bad situation.

Plummer hasn't turned in his retirement papers yet, he's just telling the Broncos that he wants to go to Houston where he'd have just as good a shot at winning the starter's spot, if not better. Plummer would much rather take his chances with Gary Kubiak than Jon Gruden, on pure coaching and familiarity with the offense as well as Kubiak is far more likely to still be the head coach for his team in 2008. Completely understandable.

I think it's a smokescreen. I don't think he'd actually retire, he's just saying it to get traded to a team where he can have more success. Smart move, actually. But it's a sissy thing to do.
