Last week, reports came out that Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon was on the trade block.
Now, we’re finding out exactly what the Bucs want in return.
NFL Insider Ian Rapoport claims that if Tampa Bay can get a 2nd round pick in exchange for the 2nd-year quarterback, they will jump all over that deal.
If the Bucs draft a quarterback in the first round, it is unlikely that Glennon will remain a Buccaneer for the 2014 season. While Tampa Bay wants a 2nd round pick in a potential deal, they would likely settle for a mid-round pick instead if they selected a quarterback.
The reason Tampa Bay would like to unload Glennon is because he does not fit Jeff Tedford’s new offense. His scheme requires his quarterback to be athletic and to have some mobility. Last season, Mike didn’t seem to be that guy. While he has some athletic ability, he looked incredibly slow when moving around or out of the pocket.
Tedford and head coach Lovie Smith saw that, and I don’t believe they were too impressed.
With reports surfacing that Mike Glennon won’t be a Buccaneer for much longer, and the knowledge that he does not fit Tampa Bay’s new offense, I would not expect any team to give up a 2nd rounder for him. They would have to be convinced that Glennon would be their quarterback of the future in order to give away a high draft pick in a stacked draft class.
