Apparently QB Jeff Garcia is unhappy that the Bucs have not extended the contract that he signed…last freaking year!!! “Garcia said Tuesday that he’s disappointed the team hasn’t been willing to tear up his contract and reward him with a new deal that would enable him to finish his career with the Bucs.” – St Pete Times
“So in a way, it’s disappointing. At this point in my career, I’m no longer 24 or 25 saying, ‘I’m going to prove to you I deserve this.’ I feel like I’ve proved throughout my career. And I feel like at this time, it’s time to just work with me, and you know what I bring to the team. You know what I’ve done for the team, and you know how much more I can do. And now I have a year under my system.”
Um….Jeff…..You signed a two year deal that you knew underpaid before the start of last season. You are aware, that although many people consider you the savior of this team, that you threw 14 td’s in 13 games?? Not exactly Tom Brady, in my opinion.
I had a feeling that at some point leading up to the draft, that this would become an issue. I was actually a little surprised that the Bucs have not made overtures to the Iggles about Donovan McNabb, head coach Jon Gruden’s favorite QB in the world!!! Could Garcia have expected anything more. Gruden does not want to put himself in a position to be stuck with an effective, yet weak armed and old QB for the duration of his contract extension with the Bucs, so I am guessing, General Manager Bruce Allen will not be extending Garcia’s deal.
While complaining about Jeff Garcia’s whining, I thought it pertinent to include a photo of the lovely Mrs. Garcia, whom I can truly never get enough of.
