Fox Sports’ Alex Marvez is reporting that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will cut ties with former Denver Broncos’ quarterback Brian Griese by week’s end.

Griese, 34, has not showed for any organized team activities this offseason.

Considered the odd-man out in a quarterback derby that includes Josh McNown and Byron Leftwich, Marvez is speculating that Griese will end up in New England.

New England traded their backup quarterback Matt Cassel to Kansas City in the off season.

My money is on Denver as a possible destination.

If the team can sign 27 running backs, can’t it have three quarterbacks of roughly equal ability?

Plus what would put the Jay Cutler era behinds the Broncos better than signing Griese?

Griese is a Kyle Orton-like 45-38 as starter with 119 touchdowns and 99 interceptions.

Seems like a perfect match for McDaniels.
