After signing a quarterback, are the Bucs ready to move Glennon?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The Tampa Bay Bucs brought in a new quarterback option Tuesday.

Does that mean they’re about to ship another one out?

The Bucs brought in a fourth quarterback on Tuesday, perhaps providing insurance in the case of trading Mike Glennon.

The Bucs signed Dan LeFeveur, who has spent the last three seasons playing the Canadian Football League playing for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes. Before that, he was a sixth-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2010 and spent time with Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Jacksonville, where he played under current Bucs’ coach Dick Koetter and quarterback Mike Bajakian.

For most of the off-season, there has been speculation that the Bucs would deal Glennon, who is considered one of the league’s most established backup quarterbacks. Glennon is scheduled to be a free agent in another year.

LeFevour played four years at Central Michigan (2006-09). He set an FBS record by recording 150 touchdowns. He had 102 touchdowns passing, 47 rushing and one receiving. His 15,853 career offensive yards are the fourth-most ever.
