Griese Back To Bucs?

TAMPA - There’s talk in NFL circles tonight that Tampa Bay may once again be the landing place for quarterback Brian Griese.
Griese is expected to be released before the Bears have to pay him a $300,000 signing bonus on March 4, and the Bucs are believed to be one of the teams interested in rescuing him from the unemployment line.
This isn’t the kind of deal that gets anyone excited but it does make some sense for the Bucs. After all, Griese does know their system rather well, having played in 17 games for them between 2004 and 2005.
And he’s a veteran, and I think we all realized last year that the best thing for the Bucs, at least under Coach Jon Gruden, is to have a veteran at quarterback.
In other Bucs free-agent related news, the team has opened contract dialogue with the agents for both TE Alge Crumpler and DT Rod Coleman, but the talks haven’t gone very far.
Both players, in fact, continue to look at other teams. Crumpler is looking at the Titans while Coleman spent Thursday visiting the Panthers. But with $40 million worth of cap space the Bucs can compete for both players with anyone.
