Buccaneers are "very happy" with Mike Glennon

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Spor

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers like what they saw out of Mike Glennon last year. So. More smoke screens.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in full smoke-screen mode, it seems. At the NFL Scouting Combine, head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht both talked about finding competition for Mike Glennon, or even replacing him with a franchise quarterback.

"They're very happy with Mike Glennon," Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune said. "Let's start with that. Having seen him play, in the situation he was thrown into last year, after three games, a rookie without much of an offseason to prepare. They were very pleased with what they saw of him on tape, and they're anxious what he looks like after a full offseason. But at the same time they're also very interested in some of the quarterbacks, I think, that are in the draft this year."

That echoes some of Jason Licht comments at the NFL Scouting Combine. "You don't get a real fair picture of [Glennon] just off the tape," Licht said. "He'll get every chance to be the starter." At the same time, he noted that "you can't have too many good quarterbacks" and that they "want competition for Mike [Glennon]."

That competition can come in many forms. The Bucs have said they want to have four quarterbacks in training camp, while they only have two under contract now. They want one of those four quarterbacks to be a veteran, which means we'll see at least one trade or free agency signing, and probably a drafted quarterback. Whether that QB comes at the start or toward the end of the draft remains to be seen -- both options would make sense, depending on who's available and how they view the quarterbacks in the draft.
