Buccaneers backup QB Mike Glennon still looking to make impact
Despite starting most of last season, Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon is now in a backup role.
Obviously, his record as a starter is subpar, but the rest of his numbers look solid for a quarterback in his first NFL season (obviously, not in an Andrew Luck/Robert Griffin III kind of way, but better than, say Blaine Gabbert).
So, how did Glennon feel about that? Privately, it's unclear, but publicly, Glennon said Tuesday he would continue to (cliche alert) work hard and do what's best for the team he no longer leads.
"I'm just going to go out there and compete every day," Glennon said, via the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. "Josh has been great so far to me and it's going to be a great opportunity to work with him every day with a guy who has so much experience. At the same time, just by my nature, I'm going to go out there and compete and whatever my role is. I'm going to do it to the best of my ability and help this team win."
Soon after the Buccaneers signed McCown, Glennon said Smith called him to tell him about the news.
Said Glennon: "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."
Damn. Say this for Lovie Smith: he lets his quarterbacks know where they stand.
