NFL Rumors: Mike Glennon believes he can win Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB job


The future of Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon is cloudy, but the man himself believes his future is in his hands. While the team went out and signed Josh McCown, anointed him temporary starter and are also looking to draft a quarterback in May, Glennon believes that he has a chance to win the job over McCown and whoever comes in this May.

Per the Tampa Bay Times:

“He just said, ‘to start out, there’s got to be a person to start that goes out with the first group first and that person is Josh,’ … “Lovie said to me and to the team the best players are going to play,” Glennon said. “And I don’t think that’s any different for the quarterback position.”

It’s amazing to fathom the fact that just last year was Glennon’s rookie season and in that rookie season he was the best quarterback of his class when all was said and done. But despite being the best statistical rookie quarterback last year, Glennon is already a third wheel on a Bucs quarterback cart that only has two.

There’s still a chance that Glennon wins the job, but his rookie season seems to have meant nothing and his slate has been wiped clean against his will.

    Josh…I agree and have been saying all along that Glennon will win the QB job during the off-season…McCown is a journeyman for a reason and the reason is, he ain’t that good.
