Teams have shown interest in trading for Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon.
Tampa Bay is a virtual lock to draft Jameis Winston with the No. 1 pick, making Glennon expendable. The Browns, Redskins, Jets and Bills are a few quarterback-needy teams that could be interested. Glennon would likely fetch a mid-round pick, so there is incentive for Tampa to get a deal done before the draft. Mar 25 - 11:23 AM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports that the "feeling in league circles" is that the Bucs could fetch as much as a third-round pick for Mike Glennon.

A third-round pick would be fair for a 25 year old with 18 career starts, even if Glennon has proven to be a backup-worthy talent. The state of the quarterback position is fairly dire across the league, and Glennon would provide competence if nothing else. The Bucs have methodically tried to increase Glennon's trade value, talking him up at every turn.

ESPN Browns reporter Jeremy Fowler reports the team has "at least sniffed around on" Bucs QB Mike Glennon.

Fowler's report comes via two league sources. Fowler adds that the Browns haven't made any formal offers for the 2013 third-rounder. The Browns are hosting Josh McCown for a visit on Tuesday, and getting their post-Brian Hoyer ducks in a row. The team clearly has zero faith in Johnny Manziel.

Coach Lovie Smith and GM Jason Licht threw support behind Mike Glennon at the NFL Combine on Wednesday.

"We like Mike Glennon," Licht said. "We want him to be a part of our future. We like Mike Glennon a lot." The Bucs are doing everything they can to drive up Glennon's trade value. "Mike Glennon can be a quarterback that plays at a high level in the league," added Smith. Besides something named "Seth Lobato," Glennon's the only quarterback on Tampa's roster at the moment. Despite talking up Glennon, Licht and Smith weren't afraid to discuss both Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota on Wednesday. The Bucs are a near-lock to take a quarterback at No. 1.

Pewter Report says the Bucs would have to receive at least a fourth-round pick to even consider trading QB Mike Glennon.

The Bucs are gearing up to draft a quarterback, either Marcus Mariota or Jameis Winston. Glennon's sophomore campaign yielded mixed results; his QB rating stayed about the same but his completion rate fell under 58 percent. According to beat writer Scott Reynolds, Tampa Bay would be "ecstatic" to receive a second-round pick for Glennon, but would probably settle for a third- or fourth-rounder. The Browns, Bills, Jets, Texans, Rams, Bears, Redskins and Titans are all in the market for a quarterback.
Feb 9 - 10:31 AM

Some around the league believe teams will be interested in trading for Bucs QB Mike Glennon.

Although Glennon was quietly effective as a rookie in 2013, the Lovie Smith regime never gave him much of a shot. Glennon started just five games in 2014, operating mostly as a backup to 35-year-old journeyman Josh McCown. Now the Bucs, likely to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, should be even more motivated to trade Glennon than they were last year. Perhaps a QB-desperate team like the Bills or Jets would be willing to part with a late-round pick. Glennon is under contract for just $687,188 in 2015.

Coach Lovie Smith would not rule out turning back to Mike Glennon for Sunday's game at Carolina.

Now officially out of contention in the lowly NFC South, the Bucs should take the final three games to evaluate Glennon some more. It quickly became predictably obvious that Josh McCown is nothing close to a long-term answer. At age 24, at least Glennon has some appeal down the road.

Mike Glennon has been benched for Josh McCown.

Glennon himself made the announcement in a Tuesday radio interview. It's not surprising after coach Lovie Smith strongly hinted at the move in Monday's press conference. We'd argue Glennon still gives the Bucs their best chance to win, but he hasn't exactly been impressive in place of McCown. Glennon has completed just 57.6 percent of his 203 passes, and owns an underwhelming 6.98 YPA and 10:6 TD:INT ratio. He's thrown at least one pick in five straight starts. It's not outside the realm of possibility that Glennon makes more starts before the year is through, but he can be safely dropped in two-quarterback leagues.

Bucs coach Lovie Smith remained noncommittal Monday when asked who his Week 10 starting quarterback will be.

Lovie might be better served worrying about his defense, which couldn't stop a Browns team on Sunday that was missing all of its big-time passing-game weapons and can't run the ball. Josh McCown isn't the answer to what's ailing the Bucs. Mike Glennon isn't a franchise quarterback, but at least he's willing to give Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson chances to make plays. The Buccaneers also inexplicably abandoned their running game in the second half of Sunday's loss despite Bobby Rainey's dominant first two quarters.

Mike Glennon completed 17-of-33 passes for 260 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bucs' Week 9 loss to Cleveland.

His touchdowns both came from 24 yards out on passes to Mike Evans, and Glennon added 17 yards on three scrambles. Glennon missed throws and left yards on the field, but generally kept Tampa Bay's offense competitive. Fantasy owners of Evans, Vincent Jackson, and Bucs running backs have to hope the coaching staff doesn't tap Josh McCown as its starter after another loss. If Glennon gets the nod in Week 10, he'll be worth two-quarterback-league consideration against a poor Atlanta defense.

Mike Glennon completed 19-of-28 passes for 171 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bucs' Week 8 loss to the Vikings.

He added three carries for 13 yards. On Tampa Bay's opening drive, Glennon badly telegraphed an interception to Captain Munnerlyn on a pass intended down the right sideline. The Bucs stayed fairly even with Minnesota in time of possession, but neither team generated much offense in the 19-13 affair. Glennon is just a two-quarterback-league option in fantasy. Tampa Bay will take on Cleveland in its next game.

Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Josh McCown (thumb) has resumed practicing, but Glennon has outperformed the veteran badly this season. Over the last three games, Glennon has gone 1-2 with two 300-yard games and a 6:3 TD-to-INT ratio. He'll be a two-QB league option against a very burnable Vikings secondary this week.

Mike Glennon completed 24-of-44 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bucs' 48-17, Week 6 blowout loss the Ravens.

Glennon was sacked five times and hit another handful of times as the Tampa line proved once again it can't block anyone. The offense couldn't get anything going until the scoreboard read 38-0 early in the second quarter. With the Ravens playing soft defense after the break, Glennon and the Bucs padded their stats. Glennon's two scores went to Mike Evans and Louis Murphy. The Bucs head into their bye week before hosting the Vikings in Week 8. It's unclear if Glennon or Josh McCown (thumb) will get that start.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 04:22:00 PM

Coach Lovie Smith conceded Monday that "odds are" Mike Glennon will remain the Bucs' starter in Week 6 against the Ravens.

"Odds are." Move the offense is something Glennon has actually been able to do, whilst Josh McCown showed zero ability to perform that task in Tampa Bay's first three games. Lovie ought to just come out and declare Glennon the Bucs' starter the rest of the way. Through three appearances, Glennon has a 5:2 TD-to-INT ratio and respectable 87.6 QB rating. Glennon is a far superior option.

Mike Glennon completed 19-of-32 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bucs' Week 5, 37-31 overtime loss to the Saints.

Glennon and the Bucs were up 31-20 early in the fourth quarter before the wheels fell off. Leading 31-26 late, the Tampa offense began a drive with a holding call, delay of game, false start, and botched snap before Glennon then was sacked in the end zone for a safety. All in all, Glennon was impressive for the second consecutive week. One of his better throws of the day was a 34-yard touch pass while falling away to Vincent Jackson on 2nd-and-20. His two scores went to Louis Murphy and Robert Herron. Glennon will be a QB2 in Week 6 vs. the Ravens.
