Mike Glennon nearly throws for TD in preseason game vs. Miami
by Igor Mello |

Mike Glennon worked behind Josh McCown again and didn't do anything to make the Buccaneers re-think their plan at quarterback.

Glennon relieved McCown in the second quarter and compiled 77 yards through the air while completing 6 of 12 passes. 43 of those 77 yards came on a short pass to Mike Evans. Evans bounced off a tackler and took it 43 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Unfortunately for Glennon, Evans fumbled the ball before crossing the end zone, and had the touchdown overturned after a replay by the officials.

Glennon was sacked twice and finished with a 70.5 passer rating.

Mike Glennon finds the end zone while playing with backups
by Igor Mello |

Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon worked behind Josh McCown and didn't see the field until the second quarter of Friday's preseason opener against the Jaguars. But that didn't stop Glennon from making his presence felt in Jacksonville.

Glennon hooked up with Tommy Streeter for a 6-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He completed 11 of 19 pass attempts for 140 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions.

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.
