When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed free agent quarterback Josh McCown to a 2-year ten million dollar deal last month, new Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith wasted no time in naming McCown the starting quarterback for the upcoming season. What that entire process did however is raise the questions about quarterback Mike Glennon, who started in thirteen games last season throwing nineteen touchdowns and nine interceptions.
With the possibility of the Buccaneers drafting a quarterback with the seventh overall pick in next week’s draft, what will become of Glennon’s future with the Buccaneers?
ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Caplan tells WDAE’s ‘The Sports Page’ that he believes Glennon is on the way out.
“It’s obvious to me and people around the league that they’re going to try and move him (Glennon),” said Caplan. “They’ve (Buccaneers) denied this but I think Mike Glennon’s going to be as good as gone. If they can get something that’s reasonable I think Mike Glennon has to go. Because when Lovie Smith announces and tries to take it back that Mike Glennon’s not going to be the starter and Josh McCown is, you’re basically putting it out there you don’t want him to be your guy.”
Caplan believes that Derek Carr is the best overall quarterback in the draft but expects Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel to both go in the first round.
