Date:’s Adam Schein reports multiple league executives view Mike Glennon as a mid-range starter.

"If you gave me a choice of Ryan Tannehill or Mike Glennon, give me Glennon," one GM said. "Middle-of-the-pack starter." A second GM views Glennon as "better than [Ryan] Fitzpatrick." Speculative reports have linked teams to Glennon, but interest should pick up closer to the draft. Entering his contract year, Tampa is going to have to come down from its second-round asking price to move Glennon.
Apr 9 - 8:02 PM

Pewter Report’s Mark Cook believes there’s a 50 percent chance Mike Glennon is traded before the draft.

The Bucs aren’t shopping Glennon, but he’s available for a day-two pick. There hasn’t been much league interest in him to this point. The Jets, Rams, and Denver all need quarterbacks, but none have been linked to Glennon. Tampa should get at least a compensatory fourth-rounder next year if Glennon isn't traded.
Apr 8 - 8:11 PM

Bucs GM Jason Licht told Pro Football Talk the team is interested in keeping Mike Glennon "long-term."

"At some point we're going to make a decision whether or not we're going to keep him," Licht said. "And when I say keep him, keep him now, try to keep him long-term, extend him for a couple years. Having a backup quarterback that we think has starting ability is a huge asset for us." The Bucs undoubtedly want to keep a quality backup like Glennon around for several more seasons, but it is difficult to see Glennon signing a long-term extension to sit behind Jameis Winston when there will be plenty of opportunities to compete for a starting job once he hits free agency next offseason. Licht knows that, and these comments are likely just a ploy to drive up the asking price. Unless the Bucs can get a third- or fourth-round pick, Glennon will play out his contract in Tampa.

ESPN's Rich Cimini does not believe the Jets are interested in trading for Bucs QB Mike Glennon.

The Jets only have six picks in this year's draft, and Cimini does not believe they are willing to give up the third- or fourth-round pick it would take to get a guy "maybe a half-notch above" Geno Smith. The Bucs are clearly shopping Glennon, but they want more than the compensatory pick they are guaranteed to receive once he leaves in free agency next offseason. It remains likely Glennon spends the final year of his rookie deal holding Jameis Winston's clipboard.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said he is "a huge Mike Glennon fan."

"So I’d love to have Mike Glennon on our football team," Koetter continued. "But it’s a business, and if something happens that he’s not with us, well, that’s why we acquired Ryan Griffin last year." The Bucs are clearly shopping Glennon, but teams will have to beat the compensatory pick Tampa expects to receive after he leaves in free agency next offseason, which will at worst be a fourth-round pick. Glennon will likely play out his contract with the Bucs.
Mar 24 - 8:58 AM

Bucs GM Jason Licht admitted Monday that the team is listening to trade offers for No. 2 QB Mike Glennon.

"There's always interest. It's not a secret," Licht said. "We'll see how it goes. We've got some time and this is something that could go all the way to the draft." Licht is right to take his time, as the quarterback market will be at its most desperate come draft week. Glennon, who didn't play a snap last season, has always been overhyped as a trade option, but could at the very least compete for the starting job in some cities.
Mar 21 - 3:05 PM

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports the Bucs are asking for a "high" third-round pick for backup QB Mike Glennon.

A third-round pick in 2013, Glennon is entering the final year of his rookie deal, but the Bucs do not have much incentive to trade him. Considering the contract Brock Osweiler just received, Tampa Bay is likely expecting to get a high compensatory pick after Glennon bolts in free agency next offseason. Unless a team is able to beat that expected comp pick, the Bucs will be happy to keep Glennon as a solid backup for one more season.
Mar 12 - 8:42 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter mentioned Mike Glennon as a possible trade target for Denver.

The Broncos were caught off guard by Brock Osweiler leaving to join the Texans and are now scrambling to find a starting quarterback. Glennon was moderately successful as a rookie in 2013 but lost his job to Josh McCown the following season and didn't play at all behind Jameis Winston in 2015. Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin have also been mentioned as possible replacements for Osweiler.
Mar 9 - 6:23 PM

Bucs GM Jason Licht reiterated Wednesday the team is not shopping backup QB Mike Glennon.

"I'm not going to give Mike Glennon up, I'll just tell you that," Licht said, echoing comments he made in January. The Bucs would certainly move Glennon if they received a Godfather offer, but they appear content to let the 2013 third rounder play out his rookie deal as a backup. Glennon will receive plenty of interest if he hits the open market next offseason.

Bucs GM Jason Licht said he’s not interested in trading Mike Glennon.

"I would hate to be in a position where your quarterback goes down and then you’re basically throwing the towel in, like a lot of teams did this year," Licht said. "Those were the same teams, a lot of them, that were inquiring about Mike Glennon at the time. Unless there’s [an offer] that blows us away, I think you lean towards keeping him and having him on your roster." It’s notable teams were asking about Glennon during the regular season, but it sounds like he’ll finish out his contract as Jameis Winston’s backup. Glennon could draw back-end starter interest as a 2017 free agent.
Jan 29 - 7:49 PM

Bucs GM Jason Licht said the team received no call regarding QB Mike Glennon's trade status.

The Bucs made it pretty clear they were not shopping Glennon before the draft. Despite back-end starter talent, Glennon will be relegated to a backup role behind No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston.

ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas believes if QB Mike Glennon is traded, it will not be until after the draft.

"The Bucs won't let him go until they have a new quarterback in place," Yasinskas said. "But I do think Glennon is available for any team that wants him." Considering the Bucs should have a quarterback in place after they select Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick, trading Glennon during the draft is still a real possibility. Glennon could fetch a mid-round pick.

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.
Wed, Mar 25, 2015 11:23:00 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.
