NFL Trade Rumors: Buccaneers want a high third-round pick for Mike Glennon

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are open to trading Mike Glennon, for the right price. What that right price isn't clear, though. An earlier report said the Bucs wouldn't even take a first-round pick, but that seems ludicrousBleacher Report's Matt Miller talked to several personnel executives who say the Bucs would take a high third-round pick, instead.

After Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback most teams are interested in on the trade block is Mike Glennon. I'm told by multiple general managers and pro personnel directors that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have floated that they want a first-round draft pick for him, but would accept a third from a team with a high pick in the round.

This makes a lot more sense than the report that the Bucs wouldn't take a first-round pick for Glennon, a quarterback who has exactly one year left on his contract and will only start games this season if Jameis Winston has to miss any due to suspension or injury -- which seems unlikely at this point, though stranger things have happened.

So far, teams haven't been quite desperate enough to arrange a trade for Glennon. They've traded for Mark Sanchez, and there are rumors that Colin Kaepernick is on the trade block as well. But teams interested in a quarterback can still draft a quarterback, and as long as that's a realistic option you're unlikely to see big trade deals. When a team misses out on a quarterback, that's when things will really get interesting.
