Jake Plummer

Jason Steven "Jake" Plummer (born on December 19, 1974) is a former professional football player, a quarterback in the National Football League for ten seasons. He was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft and later played for the Denver Broncos. Plummer played college football at Arizona State.

His nickname, "Jake the Snake," was given to him as a tribute to professional wrestler, Jake "the Snake" Roberts. Coincidentally, Roberts adopted that nickname as a tribute to his favorite NFL player, former Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler, who was nicknamed "the Snake".

After an off-season trade from the Denver Broncos to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2007, Plummer failed to report to the team and announced his intention to retire.

Famous quotes containing the word plummer:

    We have what I would call educational genocide. I’m concerned about learning totally, but I’m immersed in the disastrous record of how many black kids are going into science. They are very few and far between. I’ve said that when I see more black students in the laboratories than I see on the football field, I’ll be happy.
    —Jewel Plummer Cobb (b. 1924)
