Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon, who will be the primary backup to QB Josh McCown, has been praised for his professionalism by head coach Lovie Smith. "You want to see how guys respond and how they act. You want to be a pro about it - a real pro about it," Smith said Wednesday, Aug. 6. "A professional, that's what Mike has been. He's done everything we've asked him to do. He wants to be a starter in the league - someday he will."

Buccaneers | Josh McCown likely to start

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 05:22:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh McCown is likely to be the starting quarterback when the season opens. QB Mike Glennon has been pegged as the quarterback of the future and could still win the job.

Fantasy Tip: McCown serves as a QB2, and Glennon isn't worth rostering except in dynasty leagues at this point.

Buccaneers | Josh McCown agrees

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 11:21:51 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to terms on a two-year deal with free-agent QB Josh McCown (Bears) Wednesday, March 11, according to his agent. Financial terms were not given.

Fantasy Tip: Reports earlier this offseason suggested that the Lovie Smith regime wasn't that high on Mike Glennon under center. This signing reinfornces that idea. Expect McCown and Glennon to compete for starting duties this fall. McCown, if named the starter, represents low-end QB1 value in the right matchups, but he'd be better served as your fantasy backup.

Buccaneers | Will consider QB with first pick

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 09:37:12 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith said the team will consider drafting a quarterback at No. 7 overall in the first round of the NFL Draft. Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, Central Florida QB Blake Bortles and Fresno State QB Derek Carr could all be available at that spot. Smith said it's too early to tell if QB Mike Glennon is the answer long term at quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Remember, the previous GM and head coach in Tampa were responsible for drafting Glennon. Smith and his new staff don't seem to be as upbeat on him. Keep that in mind if the Bucs draft another signal caller and Glennon struggles in his sophomore season.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon the long-term answer?

Tue, 26 Nov 2013 11:34:13 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano believes QB Mike Glennon is the long-term answer at quarterback for the team. "I think this is a guy that certainly, as long as he continues on this trajectory, is a guy you'd love to have as a quarterback for a long time," Schiano said. Glennon has excelled in his rookie year at protecting the football and completing passes downfield. He leads all rookies with 13 touchdown passes. The Bucs have won three straight and Glennon has thrown at least one touchdown in eight straight games, the longest streak for a rookie passer since Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson did it in nine straight last year.

Fantasy Tip: Glennon has looked very calm and collected in the face of a lost season for the Bucs in his rookie season. That's been pretty impressive. He's a low-end QB1 and a solid backup option to have.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon to get 12 auditions

Thu, 03 Oct 2013 11:46:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon will get 12 auditions that will go into the team's decisions on whether they will draft a quarterback in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Even with some clarity on the quarterback situation, Glennon is no more than a bye week fill-in if there is a favorable matchup.

Buccaneers | Josh Freeman not on sidelines

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 09:55:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman was not on the sidelines during the team's Week 4 loss because head coach Greg Schiano said it was a "mutual decision." Freeman didn't dress out and watched the game from a suite with the other inactive players. QB Dan Orlovsky was the backup to QB Mike Glennon against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: It's gone from bad to worse for Freeman in Tampa. It's very clear now that he has no future with the team and virtually zero chance of winning the starting job back. It's now just a matter of if the Bucs can find a trade partner or if they outright release him.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon comes up short

Sun, 29 Sep 2013 21:42:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon made his first career start in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals, completing 24 of his 43 pass attempts for 193 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the 13-10 loss.

Fantasy Tip: Glennon might be starting, but he is far from a fantasy starter. Even in leagues which require two starting signal callers, he is only worth using during bye weeks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said QB Mike Glennon will be the team's starting quarterback moving forward. "Mike's our starting quarterback from this point forward.

Buccaneers | Josh Freeman benched

Wed, 25 Sep 2013 05:46:05 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched QB Josh Freeman in favor of QB Mike Glennon.

Fantasy Tip: Glennon is a 6-foot-7, rookie that has good vision over defenders. He's going to have some growing pains, though. One has to wonder how much this will affect Vincent Jackson, and if he can get the ball to him downfield. Doug Martin should be used heavily, but if Glennon can't get the passing offense rolling, defenses will stack the box to neutralize Martin.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon confident

Mon, 22 Jul 2013 17:41:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is confident as training camp approaches. "I feel way ahead of where I was at the beginning of (offseason workouts)," Glennon said. "I know what's going on out here. I still have a long way to go, but over the last few weeks, when I was at home, I had a chance to go back and kind of study the playbook a little more and I feel a lot more comfortable already. But I know I have a long way to go. "Right now, I feel like I have a general grasp of our offense. I have to get the details. That's what I'm going to try to accomplish during this preseason, knowing the details and knowing what each of the 11 guys is going to be doing on every play."

I think it's really coming together, being in this system for a second year now and hearing the things over again after being able to study it, I'm really encouraged. "I know Mike Sullivan, our offensive coordinator, he's encouraged. We're looking forward to big things. Josh is going to have a big year."

Buccaneers | Josh Freeman in final year of deal

Sun, 26 May 2013 16:51:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and multiple public statements made by head coach Greg Schiano have raised questions whether he sees Freeman as the team's long-term starter. The club drafted QB Mike Glennon in the third-round of the 2013 NFL Draft, so there will be competition during training camp and the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: If the incumbent Freeman is able to hold onto his job in training camp and the preseason, he might be playing with a bit of a chip on his shoulder, since success means money. He would be worth a roll of the dice as a No. 2 or 3 fantasy option at his position since he has plenty to prove. He showed last season at times that he could be a very viable fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Barring a drastic set of circumstances this summer, Freeman will be the team's starting quarterback in Week 1. Consider him a viable backup quarterback heading into the year.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said he believes QB Mike Glennon can play quickly and has not ruled out the possibility of Glennon taking over the starting job over QB Josh Freeman. "We have a starting quarterback. It's not like we're looking to find a starter. But competition is competition. Mike Glennon is a fierce competitor. I knew that when he was coming out of high school. Now being able to work with him a little, you can see it on the practice field," Schiano said.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon not taking a back seat

Fri, 17 May 2013 11:34:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is not going to take a back seat when it comes to competition with the team. "First I just want to be a good teammate," Glennon said. "I'm going to be a good teammate to all the guys, to the quarterbacks, to the line, to everybody. And earn the respect that way and kinda take everything in and listen to what they have to say. But at the same time, I don't know if taking a backseat would be the right term because I'm a competitor and I'm going to do whatever I can to compete. So at the same time, though, I understand I'm a rookie and it's a process, and I'm just going to worry about getting better each and every day and let things play out that way."

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 18:15:04 -0700

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon with the 73rd overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Glennon is the third quarterback taken in the draft. He will compete to serve as the backup to Josh Freeman, and is only worth a look as a long-term keeper in terms of fantasy football.
