Bucs release Simeon Rice. Adams reports to training camp; Plummer not joining him
By FRED GOODALL, AP Sports Writer
AP - Jul 26, 3:29 pm EDT



CELEBRATION, Fla. (AP) -- Simeon Rice's run with Tampa Bay as one of the NFL's most prolific pass rushers is over.

The Buccaneers released the 12th-year pro, whose 121 career sacks rank second among active players behind Michael Strahan, on Thursday night, only hours after signing his replacement -- first-round draft pick Gaines Adams -- to a six-year, $46 million contract.

General manager Bruce Allen said Rice, who missed much of last season with a shoulder injury, failed a physical when he reported to camp earlier in the day.

"He needs more time to recover" Allen said of Rice, who was scheduled to earn $7.25 million in the final season of a five-year, $41 million contract extension he signed after helping the Bucs win the Super Bowl in 2002.

"We felt now was the time to make the move," said Allen, who insisted it had nothing to do with Rice's salary or the fact that Adams was drafted fourth overall with an eye on eventually replacing the 33-year-old Rice. "You let it drag on for weeks, it might not be fair to him."

Rice started the first eight games of 2006, then spent most of the second half of the season on injured reserve. He finished with a career-low two sacks, ending a streak of five consecutive seasons with at least 11.

His 56.5 sacks from 2002-05 were the most in the NFL during that stretch.

Allen said Rice is confident the injury will heal and he will be able to play for another team this season.

"I don't think there's any doubt he'll get better in time," Allen said. "I don't think the last chapter of Simeon Rice's NFL career has been written."

Adams became the highest pick in this year's draft to sign a contract. The 6-foot-5, 258-pound defensive end was the fourth selection behind Oakland's JaMarcus Russell, Detroit's Calvin Johnson and Cleveland's Joe Thomas. The Bucs are counting on him to help revitalize their pass rush.

One guy the team isn't relying on right now is Jake Plummer, acquired from Denver in an offseason trade even though the quarterback has said he's retired. Coach Jon Gruden met with him in Idaho this summer but was not able to persuade Plummer to change his mind and report to camp.

"It was a 'get to know each other' meeting ... a meeting where we took a particular interest in Jake Plummer, his future and what lies ahead down the road," Gruden said.

"We wanted him to know what our feelings were. We wanted to see what his feeling were. Obviously, you see where he's pointed at this time, although men have changed their minds in the past."

Allen said Plummer would be placed on the reserve, did not report list.
Damn. Simeon Rice is an unrestricted Free Agent. Too bad he's a primadonna, otherwise teams might be competing to sign him.

Now maybe the Browns can make some f'n progress toward signing Joe Thomas and Eric Wright...oh and B Quinn, too.

Oh yeah, and the Lions and Raiders can inch toward signing their big ticket draftees.

Discuss.

Late.

What, in the FUCK is Tampa thinking? I know they have Gains Adams, but they're willing to let go of Simeon Rice before Adams has even stepped foot on an NFL field?

Damn.

They're fuckin rookies....they're making MILLIONS of dollars to play a game.
They wanna hold out cuz they want MILLIONS more?

Fuckin assmonkeys need to take a moment and realize how good they actually have it.

The vast majority of football fans, I'm sure, wouldn't mind taking about a quarter of the salary these guys make.

What? You actually think Tampa is going to contend?

And no, they're not getting payed millions just to play a game. Sports is a business. And if I was them i'd want every penny I should be earning too.

The office guys should be concerned about the business aspect not the players.

Anyone who has ever had the unpleasant experience of watching Earl Campbell try to get out of bed in the morning would most likely agree that NFL players should get every dime they can while they are physically able to have the priviledge of playing The Greatest Game Ever on The Greatest Stage Ever.

Late.

While I agree with u, I'll also point out that alot of it has to do with agents. The agents want a piece of the pie too, so they're the main one's who try to jack up the saleries and make their clients hold out.

But they're not charging people $80 to enter.

They're not hanging your jersey in window with a price tag of $100.

and if they players weren't making millions upon millions of dollars to play a game, they wouldn;t be charging you 80 bucks to get into a game...you wouldn't be paying 100 bucks for a jersey.

You pay those insane prices because the players make so much.

You two are so cute...

But seriously, people don't spend $34 - $300 on a regular season NFL ticket (most stadiums hold at least 60,000 people as well who need to eat and drink and buy souveniers, too) to watch NFL Players flip burgers while they hit the drive thru.

The NFL generates billions of dollars because people want to watch...wait for it...THE PLAYERS.

The players aren't interchangable, either. If it turns out a team drafted a dud quarterback (like David Klingler, maybe?) then they can't just put a "Help Wanted" sign on the door and replace that guy with someone who'll be more productive. It was what...eleven years between the drafting of Klingler and the drafting of Palmer, was it??

And at the same time, McDonald's burger flippers aren't exactly getting chased down by 6'5" 300 lb linebackers every Sunday either.

NFL Players for the most part deserve and earn every nickel they're paid. Add to that the fact that out of the millions of people who played football as a kid and had dreams to play in the NFL, there's only a few thousand who can.

It's about the bottom line. Burger flippers come and go, and most are worthless lazy fucks who don't deserve 5 out of every 8 dollars they get paid.

The two aren't the same. Not even close to being a world apart, even.

Get that money, Bungles draftees...even if you have to sit out and get re drafted next year...get that money...

Late.
