The Buccaneers signed veteran NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia to a two-year contract Saturday, SI.com has learned. And if Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden has his way, that won’t be the only veteran starter he imports to compete with Chris Simms for the No. 1 quarterback job.
At the same time Tampa Bay was announcing the signing of Garcia, Denver announced the trade of veteran former starter Jake Plummer to the Bucs for a conditional 2008 draft choice.
