“The Most Sought-After Trade Chip”

August 31st, 2015


Free Mike Glennon! Joe’s all for it. Grab a good trade deal and sign a veteran.

A new CBS Sports report predicts the Bucs will find hungry buyers soon.

Senior NFL writer Jason La Canfora penned a feature this weekend on the prime QB targets when a starter goes down this season. Glennon is Grade A meat, he claims.

There is going to be a contending team that loses a quarterback, or a potentially-contending team that isn’t satisfied with what it is getting from its starter. And there will be trade options. Several of them.

I had a personnel man I trust — and whose evaluations have been pretty damn good over the years — rank the available trade options. This guy was pretty adamant that the Buccaneers’ Mike Glennon would be the most sought-after trade chip in this scenario.

“He’s better than a lot of guys starting in this league,” he said.

In the video associated with the report, La Canfora explains why Glennon is sort of everything you want when it comes to attitude, experience and salary for a player in his position.

The Bucs have holes and needs, and a sound backup, one who is sure to explore the free agent market after next season, is not that important to this team. If the Bucs could get a third-round pick for Glennon, or a couple of fourths, Joe would make that deal immediately.

    Yea, because they’re so many good trade deals out there and veteran qb’s just waiting to be scooped up.

  2. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    there not they’re…..begging for an edit button right about now

  3. Louis Friend Says:

    I’m not so sure the Bucs want to trade him so eagerly. They must know the injury risk to Winston is pretty high right now, and tossing aside the only viable option to him would be a bad idea. A 3rd rounder for that seems pretty silly.

  4. JMN Says:

    Third round pick for Glennon you got to take it! That is an O line pick next year.

  5. @Hands2theFace Says:

    I have a better idea……No. Let Glennon back up Winston. It just seems that there is a strong chance of an injury to Winston and Glennon seems to have good chemistry with the offense. Leave him be.

  6. Louis Friend Says:

    Also 2 straight games where your franchise QB comes up lame after a sack should be telling them something. Maybe he’s a little more fragile than they thought. They need a good backup.

  7. Pete Says:

    Unless they get Oline help for Glennon they need to keep him.
    No QB can survive for long behind this line!

  8. scott Says:

    No way. Jameis is guaranteed to miss atleast 2 games this year with our horrid o line. No sense in losing those games

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Again….be patient…..there will be someone quite desperate and I think we can get perhaps more than a 3rd…..or if not that….multiple picks or a player & a pick……hang in…..someone will lose a starter in the first 4-6 weeks of the season.

  10. mjc Says:


    If I were the Glazers Licht and Lovie are done trading. They obviously have no clue.

  11. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I was all for trading him, then the preseason happened. We may need 4 backup QB’s.

  12. mjc Says:

    Hate to say it but I would rather have Schiano. At least he won 4 & 7 games and was competitive.

    We have an improving defense, but they may have to play 38-40 mins each game, with this OL

  13. FSUCRABLEGS69 Says:

    THIS O-LINE, just makes me sad.

  14. DavidM Says:

    No way! Glennon is best choice back up QB.

  15. Joe Cool Says:

    Someone on here ^^^ just said they would rather have Greg freaking Schiano as their head coach. Get out of here…. no seriously. Stop. Just leave.

  16. buc4life1979 Says:

    So if/when Jameis’s season ending injury happens, if ur the head coach, ur back up plan at QB with Glennon gone is…………..??????????????????????

  17. The Buc Realist Says:

    I was glad to hear that Rhonde Barber was in the MGM as well. He said that he could name 8 teams that Glennon would be an upgrade as starting QB!!!!

  18. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:


    didn’t you read the post? Just go out and sign a veteran qb — the streets are just littered with quality veteran qbs! Easy, peasy, lemon squeezee

  19. mike Says:

    glennon is a great back up and can start for about 6 teams. Say if the cards had him last year, he would have gotten them a 1st week bye and advanced them to the nfc champ game. But his highest value is in the spring we he can be a part of a teams off season. It would take a huge and early injury to get much for now. To get a 2nd rd pick, Russell wilson or Joe flaco would need to tear their acl and do it in September. Might is well keep him because JW ain’t going to make it through the year alive.

  20. Jerry_G Says:

    I say trade him for an above average pass rusher and a 4th round pick and we have a deal.

  21. Casual Observer Says:

    Maybe you could get a number one for JW?

  22. Buccfan37 Says:

    I too would rather have Schiano, the Bucs would not be quite this mess had he stayed. On Glennon why not trade him away for another kicker, can’t have too many potential kickers vying for that job. Seriously, that second sentence is pure BS. We don’t need no stinkin backup QB, also BS. Trading MG for peanuts sounds like a move these brainiac bumblers might make. Who would trade a capable QB that may be needed to back up a gimpy rookie QB? Sure quickness and mobility aren’t MG’s better attributes, magnified with a porous O line, but if all who want to trade him feel Winston is impervious, go ahead. At least a 2nd round pick in exchange. Some team desperate enough will cough that up. Stand pat.

  23. Marques Says:

    A first round pick only.

    Just wait it out. Someone will eventually give it. Just be patient.


    I’m sorry, but if a teams STARTER goes down and they want Mike to be the STARTER why would we settle for a 3rd or a couple 4ths. I don’t think you give a team a STARTING QB for that crappy return !!!!!!! Oh well, maybe I’m missing something ? GO BUCS !!!!!!!

  25. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Keep Glennon — slap a second round tender on him next year and keep him for another yr. Good back up QBs are necessary

  26. Supersam Says:

    He might even be better than Winston is at this point. It’ll be interesting to see who reaches the post season fastest, Glennon, Winston, or Mariota.

  27. Wausa Says:

    I think the Bucs should trade him if they get a good deal for him.
    Jameis is going to be great but we can all see the OL play is still a major problem.
    If the Bucs could obtain a 3rd round selection for Glennon I would pull the trigger.
    The Bucs still need a lot of help on the OL and DE positions.
    4/3 DE looks week as far as depth for 2016.

    If the Bucs win 6 or 7 games they are going to want some early picks to trade to move up and grab Bosa since he is an almost a certain top 10 pick.
    If the Bucs can get the below two in the draft next year I’d be very happy.
    We may be the worst in the NFL at the Center and DE position.

    2016 Draft

    1) Joey Bosa DE Ohio State
    2) Nick Martin C Notre Dame

  28. Hawaiian Buc Says:


    Stop spelling Ronde’s name wrong. That is all.

  29. Nick2 Says:

    Joe that would be great if I could even recall who our third string quarterback is again… and I have been watching the preseason games.

  30. Nick2 Says:

    You know I am sorry I can’t think of a bunch of games where Glennon lit it up but we lost. Can those of the MGM please remind me which games those were?? His nickname isnt “Captaiin Checkdown” for no reason. Those who are looking to trade for him will check out film from last season when McClown went down and we were dying for decent QB play and Glennon was just another problem not the answer.

  31. ToesOnTheLine! Says:

    Had to pop in on this article…some Glennon love in the article and some other like minded fans who are finally coming to grips and admitting they’d rather having Schiano than the current Lovie Smith the Bucs got. I’m torn in MG8’s fate…as a Buc’s fan I think having him on the team is more important than a mid-round draft pick(s) since I honestly believe he is a better NFL QB than Winston at this current point in Jameis’s development. As a Glennon fan it would be nice to see the guy get a fair shot with a HC not fixated on gifting his guys the starting job.

  32. BrianBucs Says:

    So you have a very young rookie QB already with a gimpy ankle and a week and a half before the start of the season you want to trade away his quality back-up to get some throwaway who doesn’t know the playbook? That kind of quality thinking will keep you at 2-14

  33. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    It makes no sense to keep Glennon. He is on his last contract year, and with all this attention there is no way he resigns with the Bucs.

    We can EASILY find a backup to replace him.

    Licht should put it out there that he wants nothing less than a first rounder. If anyone is dumb enough to pay it…then we scored.

    Do I think Licht is capable? Heck no.

  34. D-Rome Says:

    He’s better than a lot of guys starting in this league

    While I’m very happy we have Jameis Winston I felt there were too many people in the media and elsewhere being overly critical of Mike Glennon. I honestly believe Drew Brees and Matt Ryan would not have fared much better than Glennon behind that offensive line and as I have pointed out a number of times for the stretch that he played last year he was putting up numbers similar to Cam Newton.

    Right now Glennon is better than Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brian Hoyer, RG III, Josh McCown, Blake Bortles, Matt Cassel, Sam Bradford, and is arguably on the same level as a QB as Colin Kaepernick minus the athleticism.

    I’m not suggesting we should stick with Glennon because I don’t believe he could ever be in the top 15 QBs in the league but I do believe Jameis can get there one day. The truth of the matter though is that last year the biggest issue was not the QB.

  35. DraftJameis Says:

    People keep saying, “If/when Jameis goes down we’ll need Glennon!!!!”

    Why? The Buccaneers are not going to win the Super Bowl this season, regardless of who’s playing quarterback. If Jameis Winston gets hurt, Garrett Gilkey can be the starting QB for all I care. Trade Glennon now while you have the chance to get real value for him (a 3rd round pick for an upcoming UFA who will NOT be back in Tampa is EXCELLENT value) and don’t worry about winning an extra game or two in case Jameis gets injured. It won’t matter at that point anyway.

  36. D-Rome Says:

    ^^^This above. DraftJameis is correct. We are a team that is rebuilding and Glennon is an asset that can be used to improve the team. All this team needs is an arm and given where this team is any arm will do if Jameis goes down.

  37. GogoGlennon Says:

    2 fourths or a 3rd for a starting caliber QB? may as well keep him then. If one of these teams feel they can win a division or get to the playoffs with Glennon they will hand us a second rounder at least.

  38. The Buc Realist Says:

    Some people say why keep Lovie, Why are they going to win the superbowl or sniff the playoffs with him??? the answer is no. You are either building for the future or wasting time. Quick, guess which one lovie is!!!!!!

  39. Dreambig Says:

    I think I would only trade him on a player that could fill a gap this year, like maybe a starter quality offensive lineman or pass rusher. I wouldn’t give up a quality backup QB this year for a 3rd round pick next year. I don’t care how far away we are, I want the best chance possible to win this year.

  40. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    I would want a 1st round pic,.. and the bad wheel on our new starter should keep Glennon where he is! And if Anyone thinks we would have only had 2 wins last season with Schiano,… they are out of their minds! I believe we would have won our division last year had we not fired him.

  41. mac Says:

    Its simple… If you think you have a chance of making the playoffs you should keep Glennon… If you think our team is a few years and players away from the playoffs you make the trade and get the best deal you can… Hopefully a first round pick at least…

  42. Mr. T Says:

    Lovie and co. can’t afford another disastrous season like last year so keeping Glennon as an insurance policy in case something goes wrong with JW is a good idea. I would be surprised if we traded him this year, next year is a different story.

  43. tickrdr Says:

    I read the title of this thread: The Most Sought-After Trade Chip and thought:

    We just had it and we squand,,,,,,, er, I mean we spent it on Jameis Winston.


  44. tickrdr Says:

    A crazy, misguided blast from the past:

    Some of us felt the Josh McCown era as a starter should never have begun:

    Posted by me BEFORE the season started:

    The MG8 led Bucs played the 17th ranked schedule based on the 2012 records of their opponents. But in the actual 2013 season the Bucs beat the 4-12 Falcons once; beat the 6-10 Bills; beat the 7-9 Lions, and beat the 8-8 Dolphins. They also played and lost the remainder to the 4-12 Falcons, 7-9 Rams, the 8-8 Jets, the 10-6 Eagles, the 10-6 Cardinals,the 11-5 Saints twice, the 12-4 49er’s, the 12-4 Patriots, and the 12-4 Panthers twice, as well as once to the 13-3 Seahawks. Several of those teams made the playoffs, and/or were ranked in the top ten defensively. Their aggregate record was 147-109, which is THE Toughest schedule of all the teams in the NFL for 2013!

    My last point concerns Josh McCown, and his 13 TDs vs. only 1 INT. Two of those five games were against Minn and Dall, where he threw for 6TDs and 0 INTS, the 31st and 32nd ranked defenses overall for 2013.
    JM12 anointed the starter before the season even started??!


  45. tickrdr Says:

    I had even forgotten that last point about Josh McCown. No wonder he looked so good last Saturday.


  46. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    @BucBonzai…not nitpicking but just for the sake of discussion. According to Rotoworld Glennon is under contract through 2016 with FA in 2017.
    He can’t jump ship for TWO more years.

    Meanwhile Joe is driving Donald Trump nucking futs. Talk about no skill in making a deal. MG8’s value to other teams continues to climb! He will thrive in Koetter’s offense if he ever hits the field.

    His value to us this year is immense. I’m tired of hearing we’re not a playoff team. You losers argue for your own limitations. Even if I accept 5-6 wins tops does that not get dramatically adjusted if Fameis goes down?

    Let me try and imagine life from you Negative Nellies viewpoint. IF Fameis goes down would you rather stay on track for six and put in Seth Lobato and win 1 or two games this year. I’m freaking tired of LOSING. i’ll take six wins over two wins ALL the time!!!

    Where is our competive fire? MG8 is worth far, far more than a 3rd round pick to us. Forget about the others he is WORTH MORE TO US!!! In 2016 we owe him $675,000!!!! Two more years of a solid NFL QB for under $700,000 per.
    You want to give some slug like Josh McClown or Jason “I’ve never been a winner” Campbell multi millions. Have you considered the salary cap implications.

    Somebody pointed out MG8 might even be more valuable after the season when a team knows they have him for the entire off season.

    Consider this scenario. The Deadskins are in deep deep dooty at QB!!! There are rumblings that they are ready to move on from RGIII and Kirk Cousins has choked everytime he’s been given a chance.

    The Deadskins gave away the ranch to get RGIII!!! Can you imagine if their QB play continues to doom them to losing how they might feel about taking a shot with MG8 secure in the knowledge they could pay him less than $700,000 in his first season with them.

    A freaking 3rd rounder. When I get back I plan to use my RE Brokers’ license.
    I want some names here. I want to deal with you! A 3rd rounder at THIS time for MG8 is brain dead. We’ll get a LOT more if we hang on. If we get nothing a
    solid QB for two years at less than $700,000 is a BARGAIN!!!!

  47. rayjay1122 Says:

    Some comments say what if Winston gets injured. Unless I missed something, Winston IS injured. Right ankle sprain so I hear. I would only trade Glennon if we get a good enough offer and are all willing to accept that this is a building season and we are going to be cellar dwellers again. That way when Winston can’t play due to injury, it won’t matter that we have zero chance of winning with our back up QB.

  48. Hawk Says:

    Every time I see/hear someone write/say that Glennon’s nickname is “Captain Checkdown”, I just shake my head. It is either a parrot, a lemming, or just a football simpleton. Before spouting such nonsense (hate?), check the facts. It will cheat the rest of us out of a good laugh, but at least you won’t look so foolish. If you don’t know how to find football facts, try Advanced Football Analytics, and see where Glennon ranks for % pass atts. OVER 15 yds. for 2014.
    BTW, through three preseason games, we can now see (ESPECIALLY after this last one) that QB was NOT the biggest problem with last years’ football team. The third preseason game is the ‘tune-up’ game, and “McCown” reeked havoc on the Buccaneer defense. He threw TWO(2) TD passes and ZERO interceptions. The Buccaneer ‘starting’ offense (in THREE games) has ZERO TD passes and TWO (2) interceptions.
    I was hoping for six wins in 2015, but unless they are just ‘tanking’ the preseason, I do not believe I will get my wish.

  49. Buc1987 Says:

    I want him gone, because I’m sick of the Glennon Mob.

  50. georgia buc fan 39 years Says:

    Remember Lovie you said Mike Glennon was our quarterback of the future. might be prophecy. Funny how this subject evokes so many responses

  51. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    I want him gone, because I’m sick of the Glennon Mob.

    Tsk..tsk…tsk. You a hater? Who’d a thunk it? I’m no member of the mob.

    I break QB’s into three categories.

    Franchise QB’s…can carry a team at times and can definitely win an SB. Maybe six of those in the league.

    Competent NFL QB’s…may not carry a team but can definitely win an SB with the right team. Think Trent Dilfer..Joe Flacco…Brad Johnson…

    Dead weight…These guys not only are never able to carry a team, they actually cost their team over the long haul. Think Josh McCown..Luke McCown..Blaine Gabbert..etc.

    IMHO MG8 while no franchise QB is clearly a competent NFL QB who can win IF he’s on the right team.

  52. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    BTW for those of you clamoring for a 3rd round draft pick to simply REPLACE what we spent on MG8 even though he’s clearly improved and played beyond a 3rd round pick let’s give some perspective.

    And so you’d happily trade Mike Glennon for…
    Mason Foster? Myron Lewis? Jeremy Zuttah? Quincy Black? Sabby Piscatelli(2ndrounder)? Maurice Stovall? Alex Smith? Marquis Cooper?

    Apparently you all believe that since we got incredibly LUCKY (or give L&L some credit…I think it’s some of both) and got Kwon in the 4th that we can simply repeat that success. It ain’t that easy!!!

    Look at that list again. That’s what a REAL 3rd rounder looks like for the Bucs.
    Was there really anybody on that list that would make a dramatic difference in our team?

    I wouldn’t mind Foster at OLB but he wouldn’t necessarily crack this lineup.
    The ONLY player on that list who could help us now is Zuttah..he’s solid but he wouldn’t be a difference maker either.

    We all agree that QB is the single most important position on the team and by a significant margin!!! I would trade MG8 for the RIGHT deal. A 3rd rounder and we get more value out of him by simply keeping him for two more years at less than $700,000 per at the most important position on the field.

    Other than 87’s honest self assessment I cannot understand the rush to trade him for a 3rd rounder.

  53. The original "Kevin" Says:

    Why in the HELL would you trade Glennon? Winston hasnt even played more than 4 quarters of football in the preseason and hes already got a bummed ankle. Mike Glennon may end up being the savior of the season if Winton cant move around. He may have did it in college for a while but thats not the nfl with our oline. Trading glennon would ensure loss after loss of winston could not go. If they trade glennon….I dont know that it would even be worth watching. Winstons hurt…and hes gonna get hurt again until he realizes he not wearing scuba flippers out there

  54. The original "Kevin" Says:

    Your right georgia buc…..glennon always has been our quarterback of the future. We have a number 1 overall pick backup quarterback

  55. Buccfan37 Says:

    87… you just said recently that you were a Glennon fan. I think the support for him in these comments have got you rattled.

  56. DraftJameis Says:


    You didn’t actually just cite failed 3rd rounders from the GRUDEN era as support to your claim did you? By that logic the Bucs should just forfeit their 3rd rounder every year. A valid point can be made for keeping Glennon, but yours is not that. A 3rd round pick is a 3rd round pick, regardless of what coincidental list of busts you can come up with. Whiffing on Maurice Stovall 9.5 years ago literally has nothing to do with the 2016 Draft.

  57. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    No I did not simply post Gruden’s picks. I went back about ten years just to illustrate the “type” of player that goes in the 3rd round.

    It encompasses Gruden/Allen as well as the “Rock Star”. If you wish you can add L&L’s 3rd rounder since many here are really upset with the selection of Sims.
    I didn’t include Sims because I think the verdict is still out there. But having said that I wouldn’t trade MG8 for Sims either. No other position comes close to QB in impact. About 1 in 5 FIRST ROUND picks ever make a pro bowl. About half play solid careers…FIRST ROUNDERS…that drops for the 2nd and of course even more for a 3rd rounder.

    And so if we got a FIRST ROUNDER for Glennon there would be a 50-50 chance they would work out..pretty close for the 2nd and then it drops off.

    We KNOW what we have in MG8. Yet people are willing to toss it all away for a LESS than 50-50 success. That was the point of listing those players. Which of them stood out. I remember how everybody was jumping up and down for joy because Zuttah worked out as a 3rd rounder.

  58. owlykat Says:

    I totally agree Joe that now is the time to trade Glennon, but after all the praise he is getting, we would be foolish not to hold out for a second round pick. I watched a great replacement for him play against the cardinals last night named Matt McGloin for Oakland. I swear his smooth play reminded me of the greatest 49er QB of all time who was his build and height. Matt was so instinctive and accurate and had all the throws. If we keep Glennon, what is to say he too will not get hurt behind this line. He is less able to run so he is going to be a bean pole target. He also is not going to win many games either. He is no winner. You have to get a turnover on the opposite team’s 30 yard line to have a chance of him getting a touch down. And you cannot count on him to bring a team back at the end of the game either. Get a second pick for Glennon, and trade your third pick and get Matt McGloin in trade from Oakland. He will be able to win a lot more games this year if called upon than Glennon can.

  59. Buc1987 Says:

    Welp as Winston’s biggest supporter here, I’ll say this. The realist in me knows how many QB’s looked great in college only to fail in the pro’s no matter what round or how high they were drafted. I’m confident in Jameis, but I’m also confident that this is going to take a little bit of time before he goes to a Pro Bowl. He may be a bust, but I don’t see it.

    Then again, who’s right or wrong at this point in his career?

    If I’m completely wrong, I’d sure like to have Glennon for a back up answer in case of injury or chance of Jameis actually becoming another one of the long list of QB’s that were great on college and sucked in the pro’s. Once again I don’t see it, but keep Glennon in case of anything.

  60. Buc1987 Says:

    “I want him gone, because I’m sick of the Glennon Mob.”

    lol…I forgot I typed that earlier. I was just trying to rile the thread.

  61. Seminole Bill Says:

    So, if we trade Glennon, who is the backup QB? If we were going to trade Glennon we should have kept McCown as the backup. Think, people – you cannot go into a 16 game season without a backup QB.

  62. DraftJameis Says:


    Your argument would make perfect sense if we didn’t have that new guy who wears #3. Everything you say about Glennon and his value as a QB is true. However the caveat that is most importantly being missed is the fact that he has no value (I should say very minimal, if you wanna get economical/technical) while he’s on the bench. So that, let’s say, 10% success rate of a potential third rounder holds much more value to the Bucs than keeping Glennon does. You said it yourself; we know what we have in MG8. He’s not going to carry this team to a Super Bowl, even if he gets the chance to if JW3 were to get hurt. If the Bucs are a 3-6 team, and Jameis goes down, what benefit is bringing in Mike Glennon going to be long term?

  65. Danati74 Says:

    Wow, people..so called fans wishing we still had Shiano. Think about it…you are the only 2 or 3 in the world. Wake up!!! Go watch one of his press conferences. The worst coach. That is the only time I hated the Bucs. I kept thinking who the f¥ck hired the drill sergeant bozo. Then I kept looking at boy wonder The Dom. Geez, I just threw up in my mouth. I can’t believe a fan, or moron would want that dip sh!t back. No other team wanted him. Not even his love Billacheat. Thank god he’s gone. I had a Bears fan tell me tonight we were lucky to have Lovie. He at least got to the SB and made the playoff. Just wait, and let’s see what happens. Last year was a waste and we knew it. We got Jameis!!! All other NFC south teams had a QB, and year after year we had garbage. Let’s wait we’re finally building again. Some sorry fan thinks this is rebuild year 7. Either jump on the ship, or ride out. Remember guys…it’s still the preseason. It don’t count. Ya last preseason caused for concerns, but we are on the right track. Shiano…shut the f¥ck up!!!

  66. jbskiff Says:

    Sounds like a lot of Hate on Glennon from the self proclaimed General of the Glennon Mob. Bully pulpits whether they be Blogs, radio programs, papers or sit house commentaries, will not get Glennon traded. Lovey knows his ass is on the line this year and he’s not about to get rid of his insurance for winston. Joe’s and Dumig’s favorite quarterback will be starting for the Bucs by the 8Th Game.

    Why in the HELL would you trade Glennon? Winston hasnt even played more than 4 quarters of football in the preseason and hes already got a bummed ankle. Mike Glennon may end up being the savior of the season if Winton cant move around.

    Savior of the season? What exactly are the Bucs trying to save? Be realistic for a moment. The Bucs are not a Super Bowl bound team, period. They aren’t even a playoff team. Do you think the Bucs are going 9-7 or 10-6? LOL!

    So then should the Bucs tank this season for high draft picks because analysts and a lot of fans don’t see the team winning many games? Most of these guys train hard and stick to strict diets throughout the season (and off season) for an opportunity to win the SB, and some of you Nancy’s think who cares about quality depth since it’s a foregone conclusion the team will suck again this year!? Man that is a loser mentality for sure, probably why a lot of posters here are fine with keeping Lovie around even if he has another 2-14 season since he did take a team to a SB once in the past decade. I’m sure guys near the end of their careers like VJax have a very different perspective on what a future 3rd round pick is worth vs keeping Glennon in Tampa.
