Bucs Planning For Glennon Exit?

April 1st, 2016
Actions indicate something brewing with Mike Glennon.

Yes, Joe sure hopes Mike Glennon is traded.

Not that Joe has anything against the backup quarterback of the Bucs — he doesn’t. But Joe sure would rather have a new, young potential starter for a previously underwhelming defense than a guy who you pray never steps on the field.

Last week at the NFL owners meetings in pedestrian Boca Raton, Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht admitted he is studyiing inquiries for Glennon’s services but maintained he wants to keep Glennon barring a deal that knocks his socks off.

Of course, all sorts of innuendo is coming out of New York claiming the Jets are hot and bothered over the prospect of trading for Glennon. We shall see.

But yesterday, Tony Pauline of Walter Football reported very interesting information. Bucs quarterbacks coach Mike Bajakian privately worked out Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen last week.

Also, something called NFLMocks.coms, part of the FanSided network, claims Bajakian monitored Christian Hackenberg at Penn State’s pro day.

So why exactly did the Bucs spend the energy and Team Glazer loot to work out a quarterback if they are already set with three quarterbacks?

Maybe the Bucs do not plan on being set with their backups in the near future.

As the late, great sports columnist Joe Strauss would write: #Intrigue

    Is this the 1000th “Joe wants Glennon traded” post??

  2. Bucs SB with Jameis Says:

    It is the off season. Joe is trying to give us something to read

  3. Bucs SB with Jameis Says:

    Actually I think this is one of the more tasty nuggets that you have provided us lately. Very interesting. Thanks

  4. Espo Says:

    Due diligence?

  5. Pickgrin Says:

    What? Joe wants Mike Glennon traded???

    That’s the 1st I’ve heard of it…..

  6. DoofusDan Says:

    I don’t think they’re trade posturing. I’d call it being a prudent and professionally run staff. I would expect Jason to scout talent of the caricature he desires. If a trade or injury occurs and these QB’S are available their bases are covered. Most well run organizations operate in this manner every year.

  7. Bucs SB with Jameis Says:

    After over 4 years of posting here I will finally meet another poster in person. Nole on Saturday and I will be tossing back a few beers tonight somewhere here in Orlando while we discuss all things Bucs! I will drink one for you too Joe.

  8. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Joe that’ll make two of us…

  9. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Dag SB I think we may be setting a new precedent.

  10. FuNkYxMuNkEy Says:

    Drink one for me as well Buc SB

  11. Bucs SB with Jameis Says:

    Will gladly do FuNkY!

  12. Dreambig Says:

    Hey I have an idea, lets trade Glennon for a 3rd round draft pick. Then in the draft we will pick up a new fresh back up QB with no experience, with oh, I don’t know, maybe a 3rd round draft pick. Makes perfect sense.

  13. CrustyCrab Says:

    Every team look at quaterbacks in the offseason or they would be doing there team a disservice. We signed Griffin and put him on the roster so no one can snatch him.

  14. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    With Griffin, I don’t think we need to draft a QB….and I certainly don’t believe we need to carry 3 on the active roster.

  15. ToesOnTheLine! Says:

    Well the intersting nugget I took from this story is the Hackenberg mention. As anyone who’s wasted precious moments of their lives to read one of my posts knows…I like Glennon but have been bullish on Hackenberg. I wanted him on the team more than “the savior” because I wasn’t sold on Winston’s maturity last year at this time. Obviously those fears where unwarranted, and oddly I find myself intrigued by a Winston-Hackenberg QB duo. Alas the team has other needs to address, and it would be a waste. I still think that young man will eventually be a top 10 NFL QB, but it certainly looks like the Bucs already have their guy who will be one as well.

  16. The Buc Realist Says:

    How do we know that Bucs QB Coach was not looking for a replacement for Griffin???

  17. R.O Says:

    The packers did this for years… Draft a QB they felt had potential. I have no prob with this. JW’s health is not guarenteed.

  18. 813bucboi Says:

    @realist..thats what I was thinking…or at the very least challenge him for the backup position….I would like us to try to get j.brissett from ncst in the later rounds if available…reminds me of a poor man Winston….GO BUCS!!!

  19. BucFan20 Says:

    Well it is the daily ” Why is Glennon Still Here?” story. To followed by ” Is He Gone Yet?” To be followed by “What The Hell Is Licht Waiting For?” We get the idea. You and your gang don’t want him. When Jason decides to do what he is going to do he will. But you and your gang are not going to make it happen any faster.

  20. DB55 Says:

    Still don’t like the idea of trading Glennon. Luck was hurt most of last season. Cam almost died last off-season. It’s just smart business to keep a capable back-up unless we want to draft in the top ten again should anything happen to Jaboo.

    Didn’t Jaboo take the most qb hits last year? Didn’t he play with a bum ankle all year? Doesn’t he take off thinking he’s the reincarnation of Barry Sanders?

  21. RustyRhinos Says:

    Lol Realist, this was my first thought too.

    “How do we know that Bucs QB Coach was not looking for a replacement for Griffin???”

    Have a beer or two for me Bucs SB and Nole, I prefer amber ale.

  22. JAB83 Says:

    You this does present a bit of intrigue…. When we scooped Griffin from the Aint’s word was he was a very talented passer with a strong arm….

    Perhaps we are looking to fill the needs of a couple teams at QB???

    That would be a hoot if JL did something like.

    Trade MG and the #9, in return for Mo and a 2nd Round pick …. Than used Griffin and that same 2nd pick to move back up into the first…

    Ok I am just BSing but if Griffin is as good as some of the reports were… Well then he is every bit as good AND valuable as MG….

    We don’t need no stinking back up QB right Sloppy Joes… Use the extra roster spot for another DLineman…. We need 20 DLinemen on the roster to have a chance…. Besides if JW goes down all the games are meaningless anyways…

  23. Buccfan37 Says:

    If Glennon is such a hot commodity someone should have already snatched him up. Cheap chiselers want to lowball his questionable worth. The Bucs quarterback of the future that never was.

  24. kraymuthaphukinglocz Says:

    i think if we wasting a pick on a qb woldbe a bad idea, if we do I hope for every bucs fan sake we take one after round 3 kuz we really need to fill other holes. but this is my team and I have the buc flag tattooed on my chest so with that said I WILL BE BEHIND THEM 1000%, I just wanna WIN is the keyword.

  25. ElioT Says:


    It’s better then losing Glennon for nothing in 2017.

    How anyone could think it makes sense to keep Glennon for 2016 is beyond me.

    He must be traded.

  26. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:


    Let’s say this team is 9-6, and in week 17 are in a “win and in” situation. Late in the 2nd quarter something that I don’t even want to think about happens to our starting QB and our backup QB has to come in and lead our team to victory in order to get us into the playoffs.

    Now, would you rather have Mike Glennon or Ryan Griffin in the game? Would having an extra 6th round pick this year be worth having Ryan Griffin on the field?

  27. godzilla13 Says:

    Trade our ninth pick and Mike Glennon for Muhammad Wilkerson asap. Trade up with our second pick and get Noah Spence. Bam.. we are legit.

  28. Tony Brose Says:


    love the Joe Strauss comment he was a great writer here in the LOU

    Go BUCS

  29. Joe Says:

    Is this the 1000th “Joe wants Glennon traded” post??

    You know, who the hell is forcing you to read this story if the subject is not to your liking? It must interest you somewhat if you took the time to comment, the very first to comment in fact.

    There is no other subject Bucs fans are interested in as much as this subject. Joe has the data to back this up.

    Why is it you persist on being such an ass?

  30. Couch Fan Says:

    If this happened, I would be very worried about the Bucs. Once again, Joe’s logic is flawed. Trade Glennon, he says. We dont need a back up, he says. But the story suggests we may trade him and then they may waste a pick on a QB? That makes absolutely zero sense. The pick wont be better or cheaper, stupid idea.

  31. bringbucsback Says:

    In this day and age of the QB driven NFL, shouldn’t every team be looking for a QB, always?

    It’s often the best time to draft a QB, when you don’t need one. The Packers had Favre when the drafted Rogers, the Pats had Bledsoe when the drafted Brady, heck, the ‘Skins had R. Griffin when they drafted Cousins. Can a team have too many QB’s?

  32. bringbucsback Says:

    Sorry: …”when THEY drafted…”

  33. bucs4life86 Says:

    Lmao get em JOE! All these Lil whiney complainers always have something negative to say no matter what u post. I don’t blame u for getting aggravated with em. Nobody’s forcing u to read the articles “dip spit” as the Big Dog (Steve Dumig) would say.
