Buccaneers GM Jason Licht believes in Mike Glennon, but also believes that there could be the possibility of trading the backup QB in the near future. Licht told reporters that there is an interest from other teams in Mike Glennon. “There’s always interest. It’s not a secret. There’s always some interest. We’ll see how it goes. We’ve got some time and this is something that could go all the way to the draft.”


Jason Licht also touched base on the murmurs that Tampa wants a first-round pick in trade for Glennon. “That’s not true. I mean, I tell them what I think he’s worth. I tell that to teams. I say, ‘this is what we might consider’ But that’s not necessarily true. I don’t want to discuss that. I don’t want to go public with that.”

He also went to say that it is completely false that gets on the phone and calls every team saying that he needs a first round. That he has not been calling every team. Even the teams that have shown interest in Glennon, he has not stated he wants a first round for him. “It’s been ‘Let’s keep talking.’ It hasn’t been, ‘We need this.'”

If Tampa cannot put a deal together for the backup QB, Licht has stated that they are more than happy to have him on the roster. “I feel very good about the fact that we have two good young quarterbacks.”


Glennon’s name has been popular among Buccaneers fans as a trade option and has been just as popular in trade rumors. Mike Glennon is in his final year on his rookie contract and should make close to $700,000 in 2016. But, it could all change the closer we get to the draft as the Broncos, Jets and Browns all have quarterback issues they need addressing before the start of the season. Ideally, before the beginning of the Draft.
