The Tampa Bay Buccaneers caused a lot of controversy when they drafted Mike Glennon in the third round of last year’s NFL Draft and effectively pushed then-starter Josh Freeman out of a job. It appears that the record is broken in Tampa as the same thing looks to be happening again a year later.
There have been multiple reports that the Buccaneers are willing to trade Glennon at the right price, while drafting a quarterback this weekend, but Glennon isn’t gone yet. Despite the ‘good as gone’ reports we’ve heard, NFL scribe Dan Pompei notes that the Buccaneers are not actively shopping Glennon.
Some of the teams that needed quarterbacks said the Bucs had not shopped him to them. That could change quickly, though.
Ian Rapoport is one of the reporters leaning towards the ‘good as gone’ stance but also notes that the Bucs will not be simply giving Glennon away and may be asking for a second round pick in return.
It’s unfortunate for Glennon as he threw 19 touchdowns and just nine interceptions in his rookie season but is being pushed out by the new regime. They haven’t cut the cord on him completely yet, so he may still be part of the plans moving forward, but his days are likely numbered even if his upside is tremendously better than most quarterbacks in this class.
