Glennon was a third-round pick last year for the Bucs and went 4-9 as a rookie starter, but showed promise throwing 19 touchdown. Other teams reportedly liked that promise more than any other quarterback that was in the NFL Draft.
There’s a lot of interest and we want to keep Mike,” Bucs general manager Jason Licht said Saturday. “(They were) just feeling it out. I know that Mike has a very good reputation throughout the league as far as his developmental future.
Though head coach Lovie Smith got his quarterback of now in Josh McCown, he does believe Glennon will be the future.
I’ve been around Mike in every environment that you can think of. And then just watch him on the football field and what you ask a quarterback to do. Smart. Makes checks. And then throw the football. Mike can make all the throws. I knew what he can do throwing-wise and all that before, but to just see it up close and personal…But what I’ve said is that we like Mike Glennon and Mike has an excellent future in the league and that’s how it’s played out
