NFL Trade Rumors: Arizona Cardinals interested in acquiring Mike Glennon?

While a lot of talk has been spent on which teams will be trading into which draft slots to take certain players, there has been increasing talk about players already in the league moving to different teams on draft night.

One such player is Mike Glennon, the unloved and unwanted stud quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While it appears the only gripe from the Bucs about Glennon is that he doesn’t fit their system, other teams don’t share the same feeling and are starting to show interest. According to Kent Somers from the Arizona Republic, the Cardinals might be a team that acquires Glennon if the price is right.

To Somers — and likely also the Cardinals — that price is somewhere in the third to fourth round pick range as that appears when the team would try to get their young project. Tampa Bay has a bit higher price on Glennon than that, but we could see something worked out of the Bucs take a quarterback in the first round.

Of course, its’ unknown if there have even been any talks between the two teams but there seems to be a possibility that a trade could be discussed. If the Bucs truly don’t want Glennon, then they’re not in a position to be too good for a ripe third round pick in exchange.  Since he was drafted in that round last year, the worst case is that the trade would be the Bucs saving face.
