The report says if Glennon is going to have any chance at surpassing McCown, he'll have to thoroughly outplay him in training camp and the preseason. The report adds this is McCown's job to lose, as expected.
Coach Lovie Smith spoke to the team Monday and said "the best players are going to play," Glennon added. "And I don't think that's any different for the quarterback position."
"Somebody has to take the first rep," Licht said. "It’s going to be Josh McCown. But the keys haven't been completely handed over to him."
McCown signed a two-year deal with the Bucs, coming off a season that saw him complete 66.5 percent of his passes with 1,829 yards, 13 touchdowns and only one interception in eight games for the Bears. He will be pushed by incumbent starter
The report says Glennon "needs to earn the job with the new regime, and he needs to show that he can take off from where the bright spots were last year and continue to ascend," Bucs general manager Jason Licht said. "But he needs competition. Lovie (Smith is) not just going to hand him the starting job."
In eight games (five starts) last year as the backup to Jay Cutler in Chicago, McCown totaled 13 touchdowns vs. one interception while completing 66.5 pct. of his passes. He also ran for 69 yards and a touchdown.
McCown has bounced around the NFL since 2002. He's only had steady work as a starter in Arizona (2004) and Oakland (2007).
