NFL Trade Rumors: Mike Glennon worth a second-round pick?

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers want to trade Mike Glennon, but it's unclear how much they'd be able to get for him. Adam Schein of talked to a few general managers about Glennon, most of whom were really positive about him, and one of those GMs came up with an acfual, honest-to-goodness trade value estimate: a second-round pick.

I asked that third GM about compensation in a trade. The response? "He's worth a 2. Especially this year. I'd take him in 2016 over the quarterbacks that will go on Day 2 of the draft. That's what Tampa should hold out for. Or work him in a deal with the Jets involving Mo Wilkerson and picks."

If the Bucs can get a second-round pick for Glennon, they should pull the trigger. That would give them three picks in the first two rounds, meaning three possible starters -- or at least three young players with a lot of potential, something they certainly need on defense.

The question is, who's going to give up a second-round pick? The Jets? The Broncos? And will that happen before the draft, or after it -- when teams find out they've missed on prospects they wanted, and are more desperate for a quarterback. If it's after, the Bucs won't have the benefit of picking a backup quarterback in the draft, and they'd have to wait a year to see the rewards for trading their backup quarterback.

Still, if any team's giving up a second-round pick, it's hard to see the Bucs passing that up.
