TAMPA - Second-year quarterback Bruce Gradkowski's name has surfaced during a federal points-shaving investigation at his alma mater, Toledo, according to a report.
ESPN.com says investigators are reviewing his playing time in certain games in which the final scores and betting patterns raised suspicions. In some of the games, Gradkowski, a starter from 2003-05, was not at full strength because of injuries.
FBI agents have not spoken to Gradkowski, according to the story, and there is no indication he is a target of the investigation or that he might be charged.
ESPN.com quoted Gradkowski as saying: "I don't know what to say about that."
Gradkowski's agent, Ralph Cindrich, did not respond to inquiries from the Times on Wednesday, and Gradkowski could not be reached.
CLAYTON TRADE WINDS?: The Bucs are thought to be shopping Michael Clayton, but it's unlikely they would get an offer they deem fair for a receiver they invested a No. 1 pick and millions of dollars in. They likely would seek an early round draft pick at minimum.
There are factors that make trading Clayton plausible. The Bucs have a logjam at receiver, including Joey Galloway, Maurice Stovall, Ike Hilliard,David Boston, Paris Warren and Mark Jones, who could make the final roster as a return specialist.
Clayton's production has slipped in each of the past two seasons. He followed his 1,193-yard rookie season in 2004 with 372 and 356 yards, respectively.
