    Plummer traded to the Bucs for a 2008 Pick

    I just saw it on Espn News Breaking News. This is heating up to be a strange thing in Tampa with 4 QB's.

    Also, it's a lot easier to compete against the known than the unknown. If Garcia was starting in Oakland with the No. 1 overall pick of the draft sitting on the bench, you know the fans would to be screaming for the rookie to start the second the old guy had a bad game.

    Probably that the Buccs were taking Plummer to use as trade bait for the texans and that Simms hasn't exactly been spectacular in tampa.

    OK, Im confused. Garcia wouldnt sign with Oakland because they might draft a QB, but he'll go to Tampa where he'll have to win the QB job from Simms and/or Plummer? That doesen't make sense, I wonder what Gruden told Garica.

    I dont think we'll see a trade until draft day at the earliest. If Texans take day 1 QB they won't want Carr and will be happy to swap, if they don't take one its a little more up in the air.

    Sounds like Plummer to the Texans would be a good bet, provided he doesn't reitre.

    I think this is a great short term move, it's a conditional draft pick, (see the word conditional?) that means if jake decides to retire, then there is no pick.

    Also, with us getting the RIGHTS to plummer, that keeps Oakland in the hunt for a QB in the draft, and it gives us a chance to TRADE Jake's rights to a team that he DOES want to play for (Houston?), assuming that he doesn't want to compete for his position here.

    Ok, we'll probably be back to square one in a year or two, but a lot can happen in that time?

    I think they're trying to do something like what the Jets did last year and get more than two guys in there to battle for the starting spot to make the other guys work harder.

    Maybe the idea would be to trade Simms and then draft one of the top QB's in the first? I doubt this will actually happen, but I'm just throwing it out there.

    Let's hope for that.

    Simms perhaps???
    You never know. Gruden loves to collect QB's. After it became obvious how poor they were at the position last year he might keep them around to raise the level of competition during training camp and then use the odd man out as trade bait if another team is in trouble at the beginning of the season.

    If we got rid of Simms we'd be left with 2 medicore old QBs. We'd have to be in the market again for a young QB for the future. Unless there was a really good deal, it doens't make much sense to get rid of the young one and keep 2 older ones.
