Bruce Gradkowski signs.......
Toledo quarterback Bruce Gradkowski signs with the Bucs. The Bucs took Gradkowski in this years draft with one of their two 6th round picks.
From what I have read, Gruden has the hots for this QB. Could this spell doom for Rattay, or even McCown and most defiantly Jared Allen.? If Gradkowski has a great training camp, which all indicators point to yes, this might hurt Simms contract next season, specially if Simms has a bad year (Which I hope not).
It is funny how most of the media is referring to Gradkowski as the future QB of the Bucs. I already like this guy, but we have heard this before, with King, Simms, and now Gradkowski. So lets just see what happens.
To make room for Gradkowski on the 89-man camp roster, the Bucs released first-year fullback Robert Douglas. Draft picks do not count against the 80-man (plus exemptions) roster until they have signed a contract, but they cannot report to camp without a deal.
