REAR ENTRIES: Musical Football Players

GARCIA TO THE RAIDERS: The Tampa Tribune reported it as a possibility, but I can confirm that it’s a done deal and Jeff Garcia has landed with Oakland. So now they have one quarterback afraid to throw it short and another afraid to throw it long. Anyway, at least it gives us an encore presentation of his wife. I blew out the last remaining Carmella shots when the Bucs confirmed that they didn’t want Garcia back, so this is definitely a repeat, but I’ll go out on a limb and say that you don’t care.
JUNE TO THE TEXANS: Houston signed Cato June to a one-year deal, making him only the second of the big five that were purged in February. It’s a salary of $1-million, a $500,000 signing bonus and incentives for another $500,000.
PETER KING CAN DIE NOW: Peter King offered up his mumblings on where he thinks dog-murdering, bankrupt felon Michael Vick will end up. Hey, guess why I’m bringing it up.
I think I’m dying to know who’s going to try to sign Mike Vick when the Falcons release him. Two teams come to mind: Oakland and Tampa Bay. The Bucs are longshots, but I don’t think new GM Mark Dominick is afraid of him.
It’s not a matter of fear, dickweed. Why would anyone want him at all? Take all the legal shit out of it. He was never that good of a quarterback to begin with; he’s got a career rating of 75.7 and completion percentage of 53.8%, he’s been out of the game for two full seasons, and he lied to the faces of his owner and the commissioner. There is no way the Bucs invite that kind of circus into their locker room. No way. King acknowledged the Bucs are longshots, but there’s no chance they even pick up the phone on that one. If the commissioner makes the terrible mistake of re-instating Vick, his only hope is Oakland.
