QB Jeff Garcia Heads To Tampa Bay

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed free-agent
quarterback Jeff Garcia on Saturday and obtained the rights to Jake
Plummer from Denver, adding two quarterbacks to compete with Chris
Simms next season.

Plummer, who reportedly was thinking of retiring if he was
traded, was sent to the Buccaneers for a conditional 2008 draft
choice, the Broncos said.

The 37-year-old Garcia, who last year led Philadelphia to the
playoffs filling in for the injured Donovan McNabb, agreed to terms
a day after talking with the Oakland Raiders. The signing was
reported on the Bucs' Web site.

Simms, who missed the final 13 games of last season with a
ruptured spleen, is the incumbent.
