Default Bucs Cut Gradkowski

http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?S=68#s=68&f=1897&t=2530278

Cut a QB who I thought was relatively decent, and a good guy to boot, but sign a troublemaking 1st-round bust of a TE to replace him.

Effing brilliant, Gruden.

With Garcia, Griese, and McCown on the roster Gradkowski didn't have a chance. Actually being cut now is helpful to Gradkowski as he has more of a chance to sign elsewhere and learn a new playbook, rather than being cut in August.

Gruden cut a QB! That's shocking, I thought he was going to carry 7 QB's on the roster.

He'll get picked up somewhere and get groomed. IMO, he can become a solid QB and start in the NFL...he just needs to be given the chance.

I can see the Vikings, Jets, Bears, and Panthers all taking a good look at him with their QB situations.

Bruce Gradkowski has shown enough the past two seasons to get a serious look as some team's backup.

He is certainly better than most teams' third QB !!

Gradkowski can hold his head up. Consider this:

Quote:
The Bears paid Cedric Benson nearly $14 million over three seasons. He was scheduled to make $890,000 this year, with up to $1.6 million more in easily attainable bonuses. But it would have cost a team nothing to claim him on waivers and bring him in for a tryout.

How surprising is it that teams would steer clear of a player once held in such high regard? Consider that the Bears were one of four teams that recently put in a waiver claim on unheralded Buccaneers quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, who went to the Rams.

Another MAC QB. Toledo. He'll land on a roster for sure...Hell, who is the 3rd QB on the Browns roster?
