Glennon Trade Odds Fading Fast

April 2nd, 2016

Winston Glennon

Those who assumed a great quarterback guru like John Elway wanted to trade for Mike Glennon to replace Peyton Manning/Brock Osweiler are in for a rough night.

Per the Twittering of Adam Schefter, NFL guru of BSPN, the Broncos have the parameters of a trade in place to acquire quarterback Colin Kaepernick from the 49ers.

Schefter says the deal hinges on Kaepernick agreeing to a restructured contract. If so, the Broncos would cough up a “mid-round” draft pick to make the deal.

So who will take Glennon from Jason Licht and deliver Tampa Bay a coveted draft pick for the quarterback primed to leave town in less than one year?

Licht claimed last year that teams were knocking on his door for Glennon but he wasn’t interested. Surely, one of those teams was not the Broncos, who assumed Osweiler was their future QB.

Time to hope the Jets chatter gets real.

    So no Aguayo? Lol

    It seems the deal is not made yet so ….

  4. tmaxcon Says:

    It would be a huge mistake not to trade 8 draft day. That compensatory pick that some think is guaranteed is 6 or 7th at best. That 3rd or 4th Rd pick that some are convinced the bucs are receiving is about as likely as tinker bell and the tooth fairy being real.

    We need interest from the Jets or Cards

    There’s no reason for him to agree to the trade.
    Why should he take less guaranteed $?
    Worst case – he should force a release.

    Get out my brain. Worst case he can sit at home n enjoy his million dollar game checks each week.

    Until I see it finalized I don’t believe anything this time of year.

  11. Couch Fan Says:

    Said it before and Ill say it again. Glennon’s value to us is far more than other teams would value him. You can’t give up a 2nd round pick on a guy you havent seen enough of. Teams are stingy with their picks. You would have to trade and extend him. When you could just wait and try to overpay him next off season. But you also cant give him up for anything either like some would have you believe.

    Elway’s a tightwad ….

  13. Rod Munch Says:

    Who cares, the Bucs need a quality backup in case Winston it out for a few games. Denver wasn’t going to give the Bucs at the very least a 2nd rounder (last pick mind you) anyways, so it wasn’t going to happen. Now with that said why they’d trade for Colin I have no idea, if you wanted a mobile QB that can’t throw they could have just resigned Tebow for a lot less money and frankly Tebow has a lot more upside and is a good off the field presence.

    I agree w TBBF. Patience

  15. PleaseGetSomething4MG Says:

    Trade up to #4(Cowboys) for Glennon and a third?

  16. tmaxcon Says:

    Tebow has not been in the league in years… hilarious

    His upside is TV and the speaking circuit not football

  17. salish_seamonster Says:

    If Glennon can’t be traded for at least a 3rd rounder, I see no reason to worry about it all that much. It’s not high on my list of priorities. If they can get something to give them real flexibility in the draft, then they’ll do it… but I still think it will probably wait for draft day.

  18. Mort Says:

    So if the 9ers trade him then they have a CLEAR need at QB. biggest hole in the league.

  19. BigPoppaBuc Says:

    Peyton in N.O. Said he was going to draft Glennon if we didnt. Not sure he’s willing to trade away picks, though and probably more likely to make a bid on him in free agency.

  20. BucsForYodaIs Says:

    1.6 Million in cap space the Broncos have. One hell of a pay-cut that is.

    I see how you tried to rain on my parade early in this article Joes bit than brought me home like an amazing Saturday night in the 813!!!!

    Bucs fans…. Get ready for VIF MO and a bad to the bones kicker the top two picks of this years draft!!!

    Here’s to PBR and Captains Private Stock!!!!

  22. JAB83 Says:

    *VIF????? Don’t know what that was about….lol…. BOOM drops the mic….

  23. JAB83 Says:

    **oh it was ***get ready for BIG Mo… my bad…

  24. USFBUC Says:

    Just read a guys blog suggesting that the Bucs give up Marpet, Glennon, and a 4th for Mo Wilk and a 3rd. Not sure about giving up a solid guy like Marpet but I would trade another D lineman in place of him in this scenario. Then we could try and trade down in the first to snag another pick in the third. Three picks in the third round sounds great to me.

  25. The Rockstar Says:

    Glennon trade talk on and on…

    But hey, everyone will agree that Mike Glennon was a good third round pick by the organization. A positive pick. Glennon was not a bust third round pick.

    Jason Licht seems to know that and doesnt have many good draft picks left on the roster from the previous General Mangers. But he seems to be trying to build a team of good players.

    SO why would let Glennon go for the possiblity of a bust player?

    I mean, you just don’t trade a known quantity for an unknown quantity. Draft picks are gambles.
    To trade of Glennon, a good player, you must exchange him for a good player, (or players). You only trade for an increase of good football players while avoiding injury plagued veterans or busting on a bad choice on draft day.

    Therefore, Glennon’s value is for a good player in return. Not a pick. Maybe a good player and a pick to increase the odds of losing the one good player you are exchanging. But if Licht picks poorly on draft day with the acquired pick no matter what round, this would be a net loss for his team of good players and everyone will say “Glennon was traded for nothing.” Nothing gained that direction.

    Ok so then Glennon may walk next year unrestricted and the Bucs may only get a compensation pick….So what if he does,…if you just want him off team, maybe the you have a Napoleon Dynamite complex or maybe giraffes scared you as a child or maybe you just wish your wife was hot like his, whatever the case. If he walks, he walks. It wouldn’t be Jason Lichts fault.

    On the other hand, if you love Glennon then sign him. All this trade talk will be a fair assessment of Glennon’s value on the open market. Extend him and pay him what he is worth to back up Winston, he gets a NFL career and the Bucs have one postion on their roster locked up for the next few years. This is best resolution for Licht because it builds the team of good players with continuity.

  26. JonBuc Says:

    Interest has always been imaginary….face-saving declaration that “despite all the interest…we decided Glennon was far too valuable to trade” is forthcoming.

  27. Dave Says:

    My bet is he is still traded. Too many still need a QB. Denver never seemed to be in the running anyway.

    Luv– are you saying Colin won’t take a trade to Denver? Why would he not? To sit home and cash a check? News flash: the vast majority of pro athletes want to play and win and compete, not skate by and get a check.

  28. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Glennon will be traded any time between now and two weeks after the draft if anything from a third round pick or higher, or a good starter at a position of need, is the best offer they get. If a fourth rounder is the best offer, they’ll just decline it and keep Glennon for the year since he’s more valuable as Winston’s backup for another year than a fourth round pick. As clueless Lovie Dovie would say…simple as that.

  29. MadMax Says:

    Marpet isnt going anywhere….you can be as sure of that as a stop sign is red!!!!

  30. USFBUC Says:

    @madmax – oh I agree but the rest of the guy’s theory doesn’t seem horrible to me. Grabbing an extra pick in the third and a first round talent would be incredible

  31. Bucs Fan Since '76 Says:

    If Licht and Dirk truly believe the team can compete for a playoff bid, they are not going to trade Glennon unless another team offers up something stupid, like a pro bowl player at another position or a first or second round pick. The Broncos won the SB because they had an outstanding backup QB. Dallas had a horrible season because they did not. Simple as that.

    Glennon is an outstanding backup QB, who yes, is likely to leave for greener pastures after this season. But insurance exists for a reason and that is what Glennon is for this season. My guess is 8 is on the roster opening day.

  32. JAB83 Says:

    76… That was the senareo I was going with till I got the vision of Mo Wilkerson GMC and The rest of the guys… He undoubtedly would be GMC Bradculpepper!!! We would have the best DL in the south hands down!!!

    Everyone remembers Rice and Booger…. But what about #77….

    Yeah that would cap off an amazing free agent haul and Joe would struggle to find a metaphor to discribe it…

    I will go with Another Grand Slam… Perhaps “Yatz!”

  33. martinii Says:

    I’m not really surprised about the Glennon issue. In Tampa it’s a big story, but league-wide I can’t recall seeing him as part of a serious trade conversation and certainly nothing higher than a 3rd round. I hope I’m wrong. It would be nice to get a decent pick for him in this draft, because he will walk next year and any compensatory pick we get will be minimal. Worst case scenario we have a decent back-up in 2016.

  34. Costa Rica John Says:

    If it’s the Jets we are trading with I want at least a 3rd and maybe a 2nd rounder….They really screwed us when we took Revis from them for draft picks. Im sure Licht would have never made that deal.
