    Jake Plummer was traded to the Buccaneers.

    The Buccaneers signed Jeff Garcia.

    The Dolphins traded Dan Wilkinson to the Broncos.

    I thought he was retiring if he went to the Bucs.

    I also heard (cant remember where) that he was going to Houston and Carr was going to TB.

    Per PFT

    Basically Tampa will get the rights to Plummer and Denver will get a conditional pick in '08 based on his playing time in '07. If he does retire, Denver gets nothing in return but here's where it gets interesting: Tampa would have Plummer's rights and would be entitled to a portion of his signing bonus if he retires.

    So Jake may have to pay Tampa to retire - man the Broncos are sticking it to him :)

    Apparently, the deal states that Denver would retain it's rights to pursue the repayment of the signing bonus. I'm not sure how the accelerated cap hit would be affecteed though.

    Denver would get KILLED in the press for dealing him directly to the Rai-DUHs (as PFT is speculating), so they create the straw man scenario, using Tampa Bay as the decoy. It only makes sense this way. How many bad QBs does even a QB-starved team like the Bucs need (even without Plummer, it's three and counting)? Oaklands QBs can't even qualify as bad so Jake is a perfect stopgap until JaMarcus Russell is ready. He won't have many chokable games to blow in Oakland and any he does blow will benefit the Bronc-holes.
