Jeff Garcia was apparently just hurt at training camp. Now, if it’s like past injuries for him it won’t be that serious but nagging. This may be just enough for Gruden to get on Bucs management to make a better play for Favre. The timing here could end up working out for the Packers overall. All the team would have to do is open up trade talks with the Vikings and Bears which would likely up Tampa’s offer . If Favre rejects any trade and continues to push this, the team could either let him compete for the job here or just cut him outright.
Anyway, Steve’s theory is that the Bucs may now offer up Chris Simms and a middle-late round pick for Favre and TT would take this gladly at this point.
