Plummer Insists He Really Is Retiring

Jake Plummer says he's retiring.


People around the league have remained suspicious that the quarterback's threat to retire merely is a ploy to try to get himself to the Houston Texans, where he'd be the starter and would be reunited with former Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, now the head coach of the Texans.

Not so, says Plummer, who first made his retirement intentions known after he was traded from the Broncos to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Plummer told reporters Friday at the Denver Athletic Club that he truly does plan to quit football at age 32.

"Life is grand," Plummer said, according to the Associated Press. "Life is exciting. I'm excited to move on, and encounter and take on new challenges with my life."
