    Broncos near deal to send Plummmer to Bucs
    By Len Pasquarelli
    ESPN.com


    ESPN.com has learned that the Denver Broncos have reached agreement in principle on most of the elements of a trade that will send veteran quarterback Jake Plummer to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Plummer
    Under the terms being discussed, the Broncos would receive a middle-round draft choice, believed to be a fourth-rounder, in exchange for Plummer. The trade could be announced as early as Friday.


    Tampa Bay re-signed Chris Simms to a two-year contract earlier this offseason. But with Simms coming off a 2006 season in which he underwent an emergency splenectomy, the Bucs have been shopping for a veteran quarterback to bolster the depth chart.


    Veteran backup Tim Rattay became an unrestricted free agent on Friday and was not expected to return to Tampa Bay.


    Plummer, 32, lost his starting job in Denver to rookie Jay Cutler late last season and the Broncos have been entertaining trade offers in the offseason. A 10-year veteran, Plummer has started 136 games in stints with Arizona (1997-2002) and Denver (2003-2006). He has completed 2,484 of 4,350 passes for 29,253 yards, with 161 touchdown passes and 161 interceptions, for a passer rating of 74.6.

    Len Pasquarelli is a senior NFL writer for ESPN.com.

    Seems like a dumb move for Plummer, but I guess it's not up to him?

    As long as the Texans quarterback next year aint David Carr, I don't care who it is!

    Thank God no Plummer and no Bell. Thought they both would have been a waste of cap $ and draft picks.

    now let me get this straight, Plummer is NOT a free agent right? Cause if thats true, then 790/Monsters of the Midday needs to get their facts straight....

    I just hope the Texans take their time to make the right move at the right time and not give in to fan pressure to have to something now.

    Good. Now let's draft Kolb.

    AGAIN, I say......everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

    I'd have been good with him if we signed him after being waived. Trading for his current deal would have been dumb on two levels.

    Draft Kolb, not Brady!

    I'm down with that. If Peterson is there at 8, which is highly unlikely, take him. If not, then trade down a few spots and pick up Levi Brown or Laron Landry. Take Kolb in the second round with the rest of the picks split between O-line and D-line. I really have no problem letting Sage start next year, just say NO to D-Carr and to his college twin B-Quinn.

    You know, growing up as a Cowboy fan I've seen what a quarterback controversy looks like from Meridith-Morton , White-Hogeboom to Bledsoe -Romo and it looks ugly from the outside; but the one thing I can tell you is that you get a better quarterbac k out of in the long run.

    Here's my prediction (at least today's prediction) - Drew Stanton in the 2nd., Carr stays and plays with earmuffs on next year.

    There just aren't any good options out there folks.

    I might also think about Jordan Palmer in the 6th or signing Isaiah Stanback as an undrafted FA.
