Joe Horn: Get Me Out Of Here!

If Joe Horn wasn't bound to Atlanta by heavy chains made of money, that dude would be on the next plane to any NFL team that would take him. He's caught in the unenviable position of being buried on the depth chart on one of the weakest teams in the league, so I don't blame him for wanting to leave.

But man, he's getting desperate:

"I'm even contemplating giving some money back to further this thing along," the disgruntled wide receiver said Tuesday. "I'm ready to get it solved and move on. The longer I stay here, the worse it's going to get."

There's some confusion about whether the team is even going to let him take the field anymore, which can only serve to heighten his desperation. Unfortunately, the further they bury him the less they're going to get back for him in any trade. I wouldn't be surprised if the team gets back a swift kick in the nuts for him; anyone willing to pay more for an aging, possibly injured receiver who isn't happy being on a bad team is clearly an idiot.

Which means he's going to the Bucs!
