Buccaneers Not Shopping QB Mike Glennon

The Buccaneers are not shopping quarterback Mike Glennon, nor have they gotten any calls on him as of late, a source tells Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (on Twitter). A report earlier today indicated that Glennon is a potential trade target for the Cowboys as they look to fill Kellen Moore‘s role, but Dallas has apparently yet to inquire on him. Mike Glennon

Glennon is currently slotted in as the backup to Jameis Winston on the Bucs’ depth chart with Tulane product Ryan Griffin as the team’s No. 3 QB. Griffin has yet to see live action, so the Buccaneers aren’t necessarily in position to part with him. Glennon, a former third-round draft choice, has not played since 2014.

The Bucs reportedly turned down a second-round pick for Glennon in March, though GM Jason Licht denies rumblings that he was looking for a first-round selection in order to part with the 6’7″ signal caller. In any event, the Bucs are not currently shopping Glennon, despite having conversations about him with other teams in the earlier stages of the offseason. By extension, we can say that there is nothing in motion with the Cowboys and the QB, though things could change quickly. For what it’s worth, Cowboys VP Stephen Jones told reporters this afternoon that the team has spoken with the agent for Nick Foles.

  1. I don’t understand why Tampa is not talking with Cleveland about Glennon. They need a QB for sure, and Joe Thomas us unhappy. Tampa gets a pro bowl O lineman and they get a good future QB. Seems like a no brainer.

    • If you think a Joe Thomas-for-Mike Glennon swap is even close to fair…you’re crazy. You’re talking about an All-Pro left tackle who is a likely Hall of Famer for a QB who has looked decent at times but obviously Tampa thought so little of him that they drafted a QB to replace him.
