Brian Griese Headed For Free Agency....

I don't think this should be a surprise, but it looks as if Griese is not going to be a Buccaneer this up coming season. This is fine with me! I would much rather have Chris Simms as our QB then Griese. As for a veteran back-up, well Tim Rattay is better for that positions too. Sure Griese did not cost us the first five games, but he sure did not win them. The first three games where won by Cadillac Williams and a great defense. I don't know who is big on Griese, but I only recall three yard dump passes to Galloway. No other receiver got the ball, and he never went down the field with it.

Griese is under contract with the Bucs for the 06 season, but it is a year by year contract, where the Bucs could cut him due to salary cap reason. The Bucs, are as much as $19 million over the cap, which needs to be cut by March 3 in order to be in compliance with the NFL-mandated salary cap, are interested in reworking Grieses contract. Griese contract calls for him to make $7.083 million salary cap in 2006. This figure is way to high for this back-up QB.

Griese's agent, Ralph Cindrich has made statement as of late that he and his client (Griese) are not prepared to renegotiate his current deal. I say asta la vista baby

I agree with you Colorado, but then again you guys told me that before and I gave him a chance, I won't make that mistake again.

He sure was a bust in Miami! Of course it would be hard for anyone to follow their dad's footsteps, unless your last name is Manning.
