Glennon completed 10 of 11 passes for 75 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the one game he played during the 2016 season.
The 27-year-old took his first snaps since the 2014 season in Week 9 of the 2016 campaign, coming in for Jameis Winston against the Falcons after the latter suffered a in-game knee injury. The action he saw in that contest is likely to represent Glennon's last in a Bucs uniform, as his rookie contract has now expired and he is therefore an unrestricted free agent. There were periodic rumors over the last two offseasons that Glennon might be available for the right price, but a trade never materialized. However, he does figure to now draw plenty of interest on the open market, despite the fact he's largely been in mothballs for the last two seasons. Glennon brings 19 career starts and an impressive 30:15 TD:INT ratio to wherever his next destination might be, with those numbers very possibly affording him the opportunity to compete for a starting job.
Glennon, seeing his first regular-season game action since 2014, completed 10 of 11 passes for 75 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Thursday's 43-28 loss to the Falcons.
The fourth-year veteran held a clipboard for the entirety of the 2015 campaign as Jameis Winston played every snap of his rookie season, but Glennon performed admirably when called upon Thursday after the latter hurt his knee midway through the fourth quarter. He was near perfect against a Falcons defense that was naturally in prevent mode given their sizable lead, even finding Cameron Brate for a two-yard scoring throw that came just a day over two years from the date of his last regular-season touchdown pass, Nov. 2, 2014. Glennon has 19 starts on his NFL resume, which means he'll be ready to roll should the Winston not be able to suit up for a Week 10 tilt against the Bears.
Glennon completed one of five passes for minus-one yard with no touchdowns or interceptions in Wednesday's 20-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.
The Bucs' presumed No. 2 quarterback didn't see much time in before giving way to Ryan Griffin, playing early into the second quarter before departing. Glennon struggled with the soggy conditions the game was played under, completing his only pass to Brandon Myers for a loss of one yard and also losing the handle as he went to throw on another of his five attempts before falling on the ball and recovering. The performance was clearly an outlier the likes of what a preseason finale in bad weather can easily elicit, and absent an unforseen trade, Glennon is fully expected to resume his backup role behind Jameis Winston come Week 1.
The four-year veteran appears destined for another season of holding the clipboard behind Jameis Winston, unless a quarterback-needy team comes calling with an offer the Bucs can't refuse. One such squad could conceivably be the Vikings, whose fans voted for Glennon as their top choice to replace the fallen Teddy Bridgewater (knee) in an online poll late Tuesday as reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. However, Koetter appears to value the insurance policy of having a backup in Glennon who started 18 games in 2013-14, particularly with likely third-string signal-caller Ryan Griffin having yet to take a regular-season snap in the NFL. With Glennon likely on the move next offseason to a potential starting opportunity elsewhere, his presence on the roster in 2016 would provide the Bucs with the luxury of grooming Griffin for one additional season.
Glennon completed 11 of 20 passes for 120 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's 27-21 preseason victory over the Jaguars.
Glennon entered the game midway through the second quarter and played until the end of the third period, leading one scoring drive in the process. The fourth-year pro capped off the seven-play, 59-yard possession with a five-yard scoring toss over the middle to Mike James. Glennon's extensive amount of work was at least partly designed to give him some valuable reps in live action, but could have also been an opportunity to continue to showcase his talents around the league to potential trade partners.
