Buccaneers confident in Mike Glennon as QB of the future
by Larry Hartstein |

Buccaneers brass is sold on Mike Glennon as the team's quarterback of the future, even if Josh McCown starts in 2014, reports the Tampa Tribune.

"The three things — and [coach Lovie [Smith] and I were in complete agreement on this — are toughness, intelligence and accuracy," general manager Jason Licht said on Sirius XM NFL Radio. "And then arm strength is a distant fourth.

“Mike showed during this process that he has those three things and he scored very high on those three things. Also, he’s an unassuming type of guy but guys around the building really look up to him and really follow him. So that’s what it came down to."

Glennon threw 19 touchdown passes and nine interceptions as a rookie.

Bucs rejected multiple offers for Mike Glennon
by Larry Hartstein |

The Buccaneers got at least six trade requests for quarterback Mike Glennon and rebuffed them all, reports the Tampa Bay Times. Some teams inquired about Glennon multiple times during the draft, the report said.

"There's a lot of interest and we want to keep Mike," general manager Jason Licht told the paper. "(They were) just feeling it out. I know that Mike has a very good reputation throughout the league as far as his developmental future."

Glennon is likely to enter the season as Josh McCown's backup.

Lovie Smith not giving up on Mike Glennon
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said the reason the team did not consider drafting a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft is because he believes in Mike Glennon long term, reports ESPN.

"I love Mike Glennon. Mike Glennon is our quarterback of the future here," Smith said Thursday night. "So why would you want to add a third quarterback to the mix? We needed other positions. Forget just the quarterback position, we thought this was the best available player for us. It was an easy decision for us."

The plan is for Josh McCown to start in 2014, but apparently Glennon remains in the mix as the starter down the road.

Report: Mike Glennon could be traded for 2nd-round pick
by Larry Hartstein |

If the Buccaneers draft a quarterback, the team would be prepared to trade second-year QB Mike Glennon for a second-round pick, reports NFL Network. If Glennon stays with the Bucs he'll likely back up Josh McCown.

Glennon threw for 2,608 yards and 19 touchdowns with nine interceptions in 13 games as a rookie.

Is Mike Glennon on the trade block?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Mike Glennon could be on the move during (or after) the NFL draft next week, ESPN believes. In quotes obtained through the Tampa Tribune, ESPN NFL analyst Adam Caplan said on WDAE-AM that it's "obvious" that the Bucs will trade the second-year passer. 

"They have denied this, but I think Mike Glennon is going to be good as gone," Caplan said. 

New Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith has referred to Glennon as an "excellent quarterback" after he threw 19 touchdowns versus nine interceptions in 13 starts last season. But the team signed Josh McCown this spring and could draft another passer.
