Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith says the team has been receiving trade inquiries regarding quarterback Mike Glennon, reports the Tampa Bay Times. "We've been like that for a while where we've had the first pick and we've been taking calls for a long period of time and I assume that would go right up until the draft," Smith said. "Yes, specifically on Glennon." Glennon, 5-13 as a starter, has thrown for 4,025 yards with 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in two seasons.
The Browns looked into the possibility of trading for Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. According to two league sources, the Browns "at least sniffed around" about Glennon's availability, but no formal offer was made. Bucs coach Lovie Smith has said that the team has Glennon slated as the starter for 2015.
While the Buccaneers are likely to take a quarterback with the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, it appears general manager Jason Licht still wants quarterback Mike Glennon to remain with the team. "We like Mike Glennon. We want him to be a part of our future. We like Mike Glennon a lot," Licht said Wednesday at the combine in Indianapolis, per NFL.com. Glennon has started 18 games the last two seasons for Tampa Bay. He is 5-13 with a 58.8 completion rate, 4,025 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 19 career appearances.
Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon is drawing some interest on the trade market, according to NFL.com. The Bucs hold the top pick in the draft this year, and it's believed the team will focus on taking a quarterback with that selection. Since the free-agent crop of quarterbacks is fairly weak, Glennon is drawing some interest around the league. While Bucs' personnel have publicly backed Glennon, it doesn't appear he's part of the club's future. When the team was in free-fall last season, Glennon couldn't unseat Josh McCown from the starter's role. Glennon, who was taken in the third round of the 2013 draft, has played in 19 games over his career. He's thrown for 4,025 yards and 29 touchdowns during that time.
With the Buccaneers holding the No. 1 overall draft pick, the team has its choice of quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. The Tampa Tribune says "some around the league" believe other teams will try to trade for quarterback Mike Glennon, and that Glennon could net the Bucs a fourth- or fifth-round pick. Glennon played in six games this season, throwing for 1,417 yards and 10 touchdowns with six interceptions. The team's refusal to play Glennon "even after their slim playoff hopes faded" has many observers believing the Bucs are ready to move on from him, the paper said.
