I am almost certain that Philly is going to resign him. That means Jake Plummer may be the only vet QB available (assuming Denver doesnt offer him another deal). If that is true, there will be a half-dozen teams competing with the Bucs to sign him.

Locking up Simms may have been the smartest thing Gruden has done all year.

Unless you want to start trading draft picks or picking up a QB in the draft, we are stuck with Gradkowski, Rattay, and Simms.

Because of his play, I'm almost certain they will try.  But how much grip can they offer and he's certainly not going to compete for a starting job.  I think we are in the mix, if he's a guy the FO is targeting.  We've got the cap space and with some good, not great play, he could win a spot here.  If anyone is in danger it's McCown.  Say what you will about Grads, but he's young and athletic and most of all JG likes him.  I think at QB you'll see Garcia, Grads and Sims...Love to see who holds the clipboard next year...should be a nice fight in camp...

QFT.

By the way, an interesting fact you overlook is the striking resemblance between Garcia and Gradkowski. Grad is built and plays a LOT like Jeff Garcia. Same size, both mobile, both without cannon arms and QB's clearly meant for the WCO. Simms had a great mentor in Johnson and a decent one in Griese too. Who did Grad have? He had Simms, who couldn't run the WCO throwing to Rice, Owens, Largent, Faulk and Winslow Sr. Garcia would make an excellent tutor for Grad and really serve to accelerate his development (which is above my expectation as is).

Wow, that was a goodie...back in December no less...I've told some in private but I'm just going to put it out there.  I would not be shocked if Grads doesn't win the number 2 job.  I think this kid is tougher mentally than most of you give him credit for.  Just something I see.  I may be completely off on this one.  But I think the signing helps Grads more than it does Simms.  Simms will have to show incredible fortitude and resilience to retain the starting spot.  Never mind the fact that his play must improve 10 fold on day one of mini-camp...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

On Grads...I agree, to an extent.  And what better way to improve a developmental prospect like Grads than bring in a guy 16 years his senior who looks alarmingly like Grads is supposed to on the field?  It may still be tough for him to make the team, though.

No question.  It's all speculation on my part bro.  Just seeing what I think I see.  I might be completely wrong on this one.  It's just a gut feeling...
