Buccaneers Free Agent Outlook Part II
By James Yarcho
Mike Glennon – Quarterback
The Glennon mob is still – somehow – in full force. Many believe the Bucs would have already made the playoffs had Glennon been the quarterback instead of Jameis Winston. As laughable as that notion may be, Mike Glennon stands a very good chance of getting paid.

Adam Schefter beleives Glennon could get anywhere from $13-$15 million per year as a free agent, a premium the Buccaneers certainly won’t be willing to pay for a backup quarterback. More than that, Glennon is going to want to go somewhere with a legitimate chance of starting – something there is zero chance of in Tampa.
Sure the Bucs would love to keep Glennon on as a backup to Winston, but they won’t get the chance. Glennon won’t sign anything with them until he sees what he’s worth on the open market and what opportunities are out there. Cleveland, Houston, New York (Jets), San Francisco, and potentially Arizona should Carson Palmer leave would all be potential landing spots and starting opportunities for Glennon.
Like it or not, he’s gone.
