Gruden jumps for Jolley -- again



Extra attentive Bucs fans may remember Doug Jolley as the Oakland Raiders player coach Jon Gruden hurdled during an interception return for touchdown in the Bucs 2003 Super Bowl victory.

The Bucs on Thursday traded an undisclosed draft pick to the New York Jets for the tight end. The move comes 20 months after the Jets shipped a first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders as part of a deal to acquire Jolley.

Jolley (6-4, 250) made 119 receptions for 1,296 yards and six touchdowns through his first four seasons. His best single-season total came during his 2002 rookie season, in which he caught 32 passes for 409 yards and two touchdowns for the NFL’s top-ranked offense.
