I don't disagree.

"But only a few hours later, it appeared Plummer was ready to carry through on retirement suggestions he made earlier in the offseason, when it first became apparent the Broncos were shopping him in trade talks.

A source in the Tampa Bay organization said Friday afternoon the deal to acquire Plummer is "on hold ... at best." The source indicated that there were ongoing discussions aimed at convincing Plummer to accept the trade and play in 2007, but that the veteran passer was prepared to walk away from the game."
Bottom line is Gruden and Allen wanted Plummer to play and the Glazers let them make moves to try and make it happen.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Why is this even an issue now? It was two years ago. Jake Plummer was a puss, didn't join our team, decided to retire, so screw him.

I have no clue what this fight is even about, but I can tell you the trade went through with the buc's knowing Jake was thinking about retiring, then Gruden flew out and talked to him and he told Gruden that he had made up his mind and was going to retire.  So they made the trade knowing it was a gamble at best and when all said and done the Glazers got money and only gave up a 7th round pick.

The Glazers loved this trade. They would trade a 7th round pick for 3.5 million dollars any day of the week.
And than spend that same 3.5 million on McCown.
