The Bucs could be calling for cash from Jake Plummer for missing mini-camp. I know, I know…he is retired. They don’t care, he is a piece of meat and they own him according to Bucs GM Bruce Allen.
“You can’t unilaterally retire as a player in the NFL,” Allen said. “Because you have a contract. He is under the same obligations as every player our the team.
“It is resolved. We’ve traded for him and it’s no different than if he elects not to report to camp, no different than when Keenan McCardell didn’t report to camp or when you see other players hold out. There’s no difference.”
