********************

A league source tells us that the NFL Players Association is expected to file a grievance objecting to the trade that sent Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer to the Buccaneers for a conditional 2008 draft pick.

The argument is that, because Plummer actually filed retirement papers on Friday, his rights cannot be traded.

And while the NFLPA likely has a valid point, the immediate question is why do they care?  If Plummer is retired, then he's retired. 

If the grievance is successful, the trade most likely would be voided, and Plummer's rights returned to the Broncos. 

It's believed that the Bucs plan to trade Plummer's rights to the Raiders.  It's also believed that Plummer wants to play for the Texans.

Stay tuned.

There are two other threads on this topic. Just a friendly FYI.
