in Sports/Top Headlines by

Mike Glennon may be leaving for a greener field. Still, he might not go far. Glennon, the Tampa Bay Bucs’ backup quarterback, has been offered a nice contract to remain the backup quarterback for Tampa Bay. However, with Jameis Winston running the huddle, playing time is the one thing the Bucs can’t offer to Glennon. That leaves, according to NFL Network, the Jets and the Bears in the lead for Glennon’s services. Both teams play the Bucs this season at…

Bucs backup quarterback Mike Glennon already garners interest

He was an insurance policy. Nothing more. He was who you thought about when you thought about the unthinkable. The guy who might save the day if the main guy was lost. Now that Mike Glennon is a free agent, are the Tampa Bay Bucs prepared to move on without him?

Go ahead. Pooh-pooh if you must. After the recent seasons of watching the Tampa Bay Bucs, no one can blame you. So go ahead. Talk about how it was just a preseason game. Talk about practice football. Mention that it doesn’t count, and that no one will remember it in a month. Talk about fake football. On the other hand, the Bucs won a 25-11 game over the Cincinnati Bengals, and along the way, they resembled a real football team…

Glennon tries to solidify role with the Bucs

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The other guy owns the team. Mike Glennon. All he owned was the moment. For Glennon, that was enough. The other guy is in charge of the future. He is the one in the commercials, the one with the huge contract, the one that everyone is talking about. Glennon? He’s the guy in the trade rumors. He’s the holdover from the Greg Schiano era.
