Another Twist In The Glennon Trade Pretzel

April 13th, 2016

Winston Glennon

Will the Bucs execute a draft-day trade for Mike Glennon in 15, 16 or 17 short days, or will they be stubborn and cling to a him like a toddler cradling his last sip of apple juice?

This question has been burning the ears and minds of fans and media all across the nation.

Former NFL quarterback Jim Miller, highly connected in NFL circles and co-host of Movin’ The Chains on SiriusXM NFL Radio, is very intrigued by the Bucs’ No. 3 quarterback, Ryan Griffin. Speaking on air last night, Miller said he knows “a lot of people” who like Griffin.

Miller got on Miller’s bandwagon during a discussion on trading Glennon with co-host and former Jets personnel chief and linebackers coach Pat Kirwan. For those fans lacking a clue about Griffin, he was snatched by the Bucs last season after he was a final-roster cut of the Saints, where he spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

That got Joe wondering what the Bucs might be able to get for Griffin?

Again, Miller has major league contacts and attends all major NFL events, from the Senior Bowl to the NFL Owners Meetings.

Miller went on to say he would cough up a third-round pick for Glennon, if he ran a team desiring Glennon’s services. Kirwan didn’t argue that, saying Glennon is a “big guy with a nice release who has escape skills.”

One thing that is certain, the Bucs have no need for three quarterbacks, especially if options No. 2 and No. 3 have trade value.

    May mean something, may mean nothing. But the Bucs spent the time and money to travel and work out Brandon Allen, QB, Arkansas and Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford. You decide!

  3. The Buc Realist Says:

    Kirwan got on Miller’s bandwagon,,, Most of us get the just of it…. Or are you throwing stones at glass houses Stanglassman?????

  4. Stanglassman Says:

    No, I really couldn’t understand what it was saying. Thank you.

    Interesting… so maybe we can get a 5 for glennon or a 7 for griffin.

  6. Pickgrin Says:

    Glennon is a “big guy with a nice release”. Not so sure about his “escape skills” though.

  7. William Walls Says:

    He has decent escape skills, but he’s no Houdini. But few QBs are. That’s why having ‘decent’ escape skills is considered an asset for a QB.

    OMG… he looks like a giant in that pic!!

  9. ATrain Says:

    Why Trade Glennon unless we get a 1st or 2nd…

    There is no telling who will fail this year… Houston, Cleveland, the Jets all could come up short really fast in the first part of this season..

    Then Glennon is more of a commodity

    Glennon is anybody’s guess at this point, but Griffin might be the best kept secrete in the NFL. Saints held onto him for two years and Buc’s snatched him up and put him on their 53 man roster. Somebody must know something. With Winston and Glennon taking most of the snaps in 2015 preseason I can’t remember much about Griffin.

  11. Howard Cosell Says:

    Why do the Bucs even NEED a backup quarterback when they have Winston?

  12. tmaxcon Says:

    It will be a huge mistake by Licht if he does not get at least a 5th possibly a 4th for glennon during the draft in a couple of weeks. 1st or 2nd round for glennon is hilarious…

  13. DB55 Says:

    big guy with a nice release who has escape skills.

    Escape skills? What the who what now? Lol, now that’s funny!


  14. Buccfan37 Says:

    Big dilemma for the Bucs, a #2 giraffe in hand or a #3 with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion.

  15. bee Says:

    Look, no one wants Glennon! If a team did, he’d be gone already. He’s not really that good. He’s far from dynamic, immobile and inconsistent. Not to mention he plays scared at times. Don’t expect him to run and get a 1st down for you, which is needed from time to time. He’ll be on the team til we release him, that’s my guess anyway.

  16. tmaxcon Says:


    unfortunately you are more than likely correct. I’d like to see the bucs recoup a draft pick for 8 this year because that compensatory pick so many think the bucs are getting for glennon next year is a fairy tale. other than the few glennon loyalists on this site there is no buzz and even less written about Glennon being the future for any team. he’s an adequate backup nothing more.

  17. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’ll be shocked if the Bucs get anymore than a 5th rounder for Glennon. If you are watching the boards, most teams already have their backups. Last year was the best yr to have traded him.

  18. Tyler Seufert Says:

    If Glennon is dealt it will be to move up in draft. Possibly with Dallas or Cleveland. I would absolutely love to see the Rams give up one of their second rounders in return.

  19. Stanglassman Says:

    Tmax- Comp. picks come a full season after losing the player in FA because it’s a combo of their new contract, incentives reached and playing time. So if a 5-7th pick was awarded it would be in ’18 draft..

  20. Kevin Says:

    Maybe the point is they may try and trade griffin

  21. Capt Blighe Says:

    The bucs will not take a 5th. Heres why, next year when Glennon goes free agency if he gets a contract worth 8 million which he will.
    The Bucs will receive 3rd or 4th compensatory pick

  22. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Bucs are heavy shoppers in Free agency every year. We need to be just to reach the cap minimum. Which means the loss of Glennon will be countered by the addition of others. Which means no draft compensation. One day when the bucs have a decent team assembled, they will not have to send big pay checks to free agents, and then we might see a compensation pick. But not within the next 3 years, is my guess.

    I am still in aww of how the patriots got a 3rd round compensation pick for their 1 yr lease of darrell revis. while the bucs got zilch after we traded away a first round pick for his services for 1 lousy season.
