Glennon failed to take a single snap in the 2015 season. 2015 first overall pick Jameis Winston played on every single offensive play of his rookie year, leaving Glennon as a season-long clipboard holder. As was the case at the beginning of the 2014 season when he was usurped by free-agent signee Josh McCown, the third-year pro was predictably a model teammate in handling the situation. Still under Tampa's control for one more season, Glennon will reprise his role in 2016 under what could be the fourth offensive system he's played under in his NFL career. The NC State product has thrown for 4,025 yards, 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions over 19 career games.
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.
