Mike Glennon stands "a good chance" of being traded at some point during the 2016 NFL Draft, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Auman framed the nugget strictly as his perspective on the matter-- without citing any inside knowledge-- but it's hardly the first time that the rumors of Glennon's impending departure have been floated this offseason. The speculation was only upped by the Bucs' signing of CFL journeyman Dan LeFevour on April 19, which left them with four quarterbacks on the roster. With current third-stringer Ryan Griffin having had a year of experience working with head coach Dirk Koetter's system in 2015-- and Glennon's appeal as a young but underused veteran with starting experience-- the conditions could certainly be in place for a trade to a quarterback-needy club. Glennon failed to take a snap as Jameis Winston's immediate backup in 2015, but threw for 4,025 yards and 29 touchdowns over 19 games during the 2013-14 seasons.
Bucs GM Jason Licht has confirmed that several teams have shown interest in trading for
Licht confirmed the news Monday at the NFL owners meeting, and trade discussions could continue until the draft. Set to be an unrestricted free agent upon the expiration of his rookie contract next spring, Glennon did not take a single snap from scrimmage as Jameis Winston's backup in 2015. Stroud reports that the Jets have been one of the clubs to inquire about Glennon, given their inability to come to terms with Ryan Fitzpatrick, their starter last season. The potential trade value for Glennon, who's thrown for 4,025 yards and 29 touchdowns over 19 career games, is unknown, and Licht has denied reports that he has demanded a first-round pick as compensation from interested teams.
Jameis Winston - the top pick of the 2015 draft - played on every single offensive play of his rookie year, leaving Glennon as a season-long clipboard holder. As was the case at the beginning of the 2014 season when he was usurped by free-agent signee Josh McCown, the third-year pro was predictably a model teammate in handling the situation. Still under Tampa's control for one more season, Glennon will reprise his role in 2016 under what could be the fourth offensive system he's played in during his NFL career. He's thrown for 4,025 yards, 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions over 19 career games.
