Bears and Other Teams with QB Issues to Keep an Eye on the Bucs


It might not take very long for the Bears to realize that Rex Grossman and/or Kyle Orton is not the answer at QB, and if that happens, or if it happens early enough, the team may turn to Tampa Bay for a possible QB alternative.  The Bucs will be one of those teams that a lot of teams look at for QB’s, as they currently have no less than seven on the roster after the weekend draft, and plan on bringing five into camp from reports around the league.

So who would the Bears or another QB-starved team be able to get their hands on in August or early in the season?  How about Chris Simms, Luke McCown or Bruce Gradkowski?  It’s likely if the Bucs want to keep the young core of QB’s they have picked up over the last year or so, they would have to move one of not more of those QB’s.  Simms seems to be the one to keep an eye on, as if he can prove he’s healthy, he would be the most sought-after one of the group.

As fro McCown and Gradkowski, the nice thing is if they are on the market, they come with experience, as each have started enough games to be given looks around the league.  So for the Bears and others, keep a close eye on the Bucs QB battles come mini-camps and training camp.

    Simms is not going anywhere, he’s the best QB on the roster. Grads & Garcia are on the short list. Lets not forget that Simms when sacked 2 or less times is 7-0 and as a young starter went 5-1 in our division winning 3 games on the road in 2005. Scratch 2006 from his record, a healthy Simms is better than Griese and Garcia put together. Grises has played on better teams than Tampa and couldn’t get it done, he was signed to replace Garcia because Tampa knew they will not renew his contract. Simms starts, McCown backs him up and JJ gets to learn for a fwe years, you heard it here first!!!
