A few months ago many would think the top available FA qb's would be Simms, Garcia, Plummer and Carr. Just about any movement to obtain any of them now have to deal with the Bucs. This is a rather shrewd moveimo by Bruce..I don't think you see it that much in the NFL (but frequently in business). Whether it helps uswin ball games we'll have to see..but regardless of how you feel about any of the qb's it's interesting to watch.
I'd be happier with Carr then Plummer, i'd even prefer to start Carr over Garcia
I'm a playa from way back and playa's gotta play. I'm straight pimpin'. Southside OG's keep it real. Represent the third coast.
I perfer a draft pick for Plummer than a Carr. We could help out our D a little by getting a 3rd rounder check it1. Calvin Johnson2. Brandon Merriweather2. Tim Crowder3. Brandon Siler3. Marcus Thomas
POSTED 9:03 a.m. EST, March 7, 2007PLUMMER BLUFFING ABOUT RETIRINGA source with knowledge of the situation tells us that quarterback Jake Plummer does not intend to retire, and that he is (as suspected) trying to get to Houston, where he would be reunited with former Broncos offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.Plummer's desire to play for the Texans would help explain the failure of the team, in the wake of his supposed retirement, to hit the market and sign a veteran quarterback, since it's widely believed that David Carr is finished there.Some league insiders believe that, in the end, Houston will acquire his rights, presumably via a trade with the Buccaneers.And hopefully, it'll be for Carr.... under a restructured contract, of course.
I am pretty sure the team can still go after and recoup signing bonus if a player holds out. Of course, they don't have to pay a hold out salary. The quote from your first post regarding the new CBA is that with new cap space for all teams and the inflated salaries mediocre players have gotten may cause established players who now are making less than market value to hold out in attempts to get a new deal. Pretty much a rule of thumb re: going after a player's bonus - if the player chooses not to play...the team usually can go after paid bonus money b/c he isn't performing his obligations under the contract.They are but the point is that teams can't recover lost money due to holdouts. This brings back up my plan whihc is Jake reports, costs us $5.3m in cap room and holds out. The answer to that plan was we'll just steal his signing bonus back and make a ton of jack but if you can't recover bonus money under the new CBA can we still do that?
Plummer goes to Hou, Carr to Oak, Bucs swap 1st rds with Oak and get Oak 3rd rd.Bucs draft C.J. #1 and pick up a 3rd rd (inexchange for the 4th rd we spent on Plummer)I like the deal, Lock up C.J. to Tampa.
