Plummer was inducted into the Arizona State Hall of Fame in September 2007.

In 2003 Plummer signed as a free agent with the Denver Broncos.  With the Broncos and head coach Mike Shanahan, Plummer had a season with a career high 91.2 quarterbacks rating. Plummer led the Broncos to wild card playoff berth in both 2003 and 2004 losing in the first round on both occasions.

In 2005 Plummer had his best season as a professional.  Most notable was his streak of 229 passes without an interception.  Jake led the Broncos to a 13-3 regular season record, a first round playoff bye, eventually losing to the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game.
