  • QB Brian Griese traded to Tampa Bay

    Chicago Bears quarterback Brian Griese has been traded to the Bucs.

    Terms of the deal were undisclosed, but it is believed to be for a second-day draft pick in 2009. Griese was owed a $300,000 roster bonus Tuesday, prompting the Bears to part ways with their veteran backup. Rather than risk bidding for him in free agency, the Bucs completed a trade.

    It's Griese's second stint with Tampa Bay. He quarterbacked the Bucs to a 5-1 start in 2005 before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. Chris Simms went 6-5 down the stretch, leading the Bucs to the playoffs before a loss to Washington in the NFC wildcard game.

    The Bucs were unable to renegoiate Griese's contract and he became a free agent, signing with the Bears.

    Ironically, the trade for Griese leaves Simms' future with the Bucs in doubt. He has not played a meaningful snap in about 16 months and could be traded or released. The Bucs also have Jeff Garcia, Luke McCown. Bruce Gradkowski and Jake Plummer under contract.

    Good job by the Bears in getting something out of him instead of nothing.

      Amazing that the Bears got a pick out of him.
      Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

          IS Tampa off their rocker? He would have been released. I'll laugh pretty hard if it was anything more than a 7th.

          What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
          they get smoked.

            We traded for Ryan Grant when he was about to get released. Worked out great but I see your point.

              I'm utterly stunned we got anything. I wouldn't be surprised if this is something like a conditional 2009 6th or 7th rounder. Anything more, and I'd be shocked.

              I'm not sure what Gruden's intent is with this move. Luke McCown looked decent. They could use a spot for a QB of the future. How do things shake out?

                Tampa Bay really seems to like collecting average QB's (except for Garcia who actually played pretty good).

                Garcia, McCown, Sims, Griese, Gradkowski, (Plummer)

                Am I forgetting someone?

                    Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

                          Like Tampa 2 said in the Bucs team board. Gruden just loves collecting his QB's.

                            Gruden is a moron and is the single worst evaluator of talent in the NFL.
