Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer has retired in lieu of being traded to Tampa.
Word of the trade broke earlier this morning, but recent published reports suggested that Plummer might pack it in.
Plummer has played 10 NFL seasons.
We have a weird feeling that, after a year or so on the sidelines, he might be lured back.
The Cardinals, for example, will need a backup after Kurt Warner retires, and it would be fitting for Plummer to end his career there.
