"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.
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.
"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.
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.
Glennon played in six games this season, throwing for 1,417 yards and 10 touchdowns with six interceptions. The team's refusal to play Glennon "even after their slim playoff hopes faded" has many observers believing the Bucs are ready to move on from him, the paper said.
