Bucs quarterback Chris Simms told a Florida newspaper, "[Allen] asked if I felt Brett would be able to come back and be good here if he didn't have a lot of reps in training camp. I said I thought he would, but there would have to be some compromise with coach Gruden. He'll just want the play called and to drop back and throw it in there. But it's something we talked about."
It's possible that the interest in Favre by Allen could be a smokescreen, but most people generally agree that the Bucs seem one of the more likely organizations that would land Favre. Their West coast offense and Favre's familiarity with head coach Jon Gruden make Tampa Bay an interesting possibility.
