Plummer Launching 'Snake's Takes'

Posted Apr 10, 2014

Former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer is embarking on a new venture -- a podcast titled Snake's Takes.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- For a decade, Jake Plummer commanded attention on the football field as one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the NFL.

Now, Plummer hopes his fans will follow him in his "new frontier," as he put it, off the field.

Last fall, the former Arizona State quarterback began working with the Pac-12 Network as a studio analyst.

"I'm starting to do some color (commentary), also," Plummer said. "I'm doing some color for the ASU spring game to see if I'm any good at that. So I might get some Pac-12 games to do some color this year, which would be fun."

In the meantime, he's set to add his own personal spin to the podcast world -- working with Sports USA Media to put together Snake's Takes.

Plummer recorded a few "practice runs" to get ready for the podcast, which just launched its first episode in time for the 2014 NFL Draft.

"We're going to cover all sorts of things," he said. "I'm going to have guests on eventually. There will be some former Broncos players, some of my old buddies like Nate Jackson -- who knows who I could pull out of the woodwork to come on the show. It's going to be hopefully more than just about what happened on the field last week. I want to talk about everything."

Perhaps the new venture Plummer is undertaking is most surprising to Plummer himself. He's even got a Twitter account.

"I said I would never do it," he laughed. "I can remember multiple times where I said I would never be that guy that's pontificating and saying all these things. But I've given it a lot of thought and I'm going to try to stay within my boundaries and give a little different insight, hopefully, that people will enjoy.

"It's just a new phase."

Fans can check out the podcast on sportsusamedia.com, podcastone.com, iTunes and the TuneIn app on smartphones.

"I want to give a fresh perspective on things and shed a positive light on a lot of sports and athletes and even topics outside of just sports, trying to make people think," Plummer explained. "Whether it's a debate or conversation, in the likeness of my old buddy Pat Tillman, who loved to spark people's thoughts and get them talking and speaking and thinking about themselves and other things, I'm going to try to do that. I'm going to try to get people to hear what I have to say and maybe have them thinking in a little bit different ways, whether they agree with me or not."
