More Bad News For Potential Glennon Deal

April 10th, 2016

mike glennon 1103

It seems a young quarterback not named Kaepernick, a guy with standout career statistics including a winning record, is on the market.

This is sure to drive down the trade-market value of Mike Glennon.

Joe might hit the vodka early on this sunny Sunday.

Per guru and super insider Mike Florio, 27-year-old Rams quarterback Nick Foles is on the market and won’t be a member of the Rams come opening day. You can read all about it here. Per Florio, Foles already earned a big roster bonus for 2016, and he’s only owed $1.75 million for this season. He’s also signed for 2017, wheres Glennon is a free agent at the end of this year.

Laugh at Foles all you want, but the guy is 19-16 as a starter, has completed 60 percent of his passes, has thrown twice as many touchdowns as picks, and he made a Pro Bowl. Don’t forget Foles performed extraordinarily well in a 26-24 playoff loss to New Orleans back in January 2014.

Foles’ resumé is way more impressive than Glennon’s. If you wanted a tall, immobile QB, who would you choose?

Damn, today, Joe can’t see how the Bucs get anything better than a fourth-rounder for Glennon later this month.

    That means Rams trading up for one of qb s. Maybe bucs at 9 if bucs willing to trade back

  2. The Buc Realist Says:

    You are wrong Joe, The Bucs will get nothing but a solid QB depth for this year, and that can be priceless in the NFL!!!! The Price Tag will remain high because it is more important to have MG8 on the roster and in the meeting rooms with JW3 then that 4th round slappy that you want!!!!!!

  3. BucMania Says:

    Glennon not going anywhere for a 4th round pick. Bucs can wait until price goes up.

  4. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    If a fourth-rounder is all that’s on offer, even up until a couple weeks after the draft, then Licht will simply keep Glennon and have one of the best backup QB’s in the league for another year. If the market doesn’t meet your price you simply hold onto your merchandise and get the most use out of it that you can. It’s an easy decision, especially since it’s likely the Bucs get a fourth as a compensatory pick if Glennon signs a sizeable deal in 2017 with another team.

    But this is all overblown, anyway, because even after the draft there will be a team or two that still needs a middle-of-the-pack starting QB like Glennon and who weren’t able to meet their needs in the draft. Getting a third-rounder in the 2017 draft at that point won’t be difficult. So just hang in there. Licht knows what he’s doing and he’s not going to be a panic seller like Joe.

  5. martinii Says:

    Sad, difficult to understand, blow to Glennon supporters, but unfortunatly true. A 4th round pick is as good as it gets and that for me means he will be our back-up in 2016.

  6. Kevin Says:

    Trade the browns for gordon take a chance hea gonna walk next year anyone

  7. Buccfan37 Says:

    It’s the Glennon lottery and nobody is buying any tickets.

  8. Supersam Says:

    I never once thought we would actually seriously trade Glennon. Just didnt seem like they really wanted to.

  9. ManzielMadness Says:

    Maybe trade down with jets in first and Glennon for big Mo’?

  10. Bucs SB with Jameis Says:

    Foles is on the market because nobody wants him. He trying to get on his third team in less than five years. That speaks volumes. Same for MG if he goes to another team and is looking for his third team in a year.

  11. buc4life1979 Says:

    “Standout career statistics?” Have you never heard the phrase one or two hit wonder? “Kap” got figured out by D coordinators a while ago now, and anyone who thinks he will somehow find a way to “revive” his professional career, has never seen pics of him away from football, he’s in the same crowd as johnny football.

  12. mac Says:

    Keep Glennon. The price will go up the first time a starting QB goes down this preseason… It happens every year… Patience…

  13. JAB83 Says:

    Oh I know what we could do to pull off getting the best value for MG…. Even better now that Foles is in the fold…

  14. CL Bucs Says:

    Foles isn’t as good as his numbers would indicate. One could argue Glennon has more upside and Glennon has played with abysmal talent on offense.

  15. Pete Says:

    Bucs shouldn’t wait and field offer(s).
    Get out and make offers to better the team!

  16. Cobraboy Says:

    If Glennon’s worth is just a 4th rounder, then the Bucs should keep him as a “stop-gap.”

    If someone values him higher, than make a trade for a lower pick or some other value.

    The issue with Glennon is what his cost will be to a new team in 2017. He’ll command Big Bucks.

  17. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’ll go further than you Joe. I’ll be surprised if the Bucs get anything more than a 5th rounder for Glennon. We held out thinking the air would clear and there would be a desperate need elsewhere for him. As its playing out, teams are looking elsewhere than our Bucs. Knowing he’s a free agent come yrs end anyways. We might not get anything. He’ll just leave after this season. Our best shot was probably last year.

  18. LovieBall Says:

    A Glennon trade will happen on draft day. No sooner.

  19. salish_seamonster Says:

    This incessant clamoring for a Glennon trade is getting old. Can we find some other topics please? How about some draft profiles of candidates for the Bucs in rounds 2 and 3? Oh, because that might take some extra effort in research…

    Joe has written about plenty of those guys.–Joe

  20. finishers Says:

    I won’t bother me or the Bucs if Glennon stays this year!

  21. The Buc Realist Says:


    Unfortunately, Joe has been trying to run MG8 out of town, errrr I mean, trade MG8 for 3 years now!!! and he will not stop until it happens!!

  22. ndog Says:

    This is easily the worst Rays team since 2006. No offense and now the defense is equally as crappy! Morrison and Miller completely suck out loud.

  23. phreakybucfan Says:

    Mike Glennon = Jason Garrett II.

  24. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    I want to see another post on how much we need Johnny Football from the “Joes”! The constant drum beat about Mike Glennon just reminds me of the constant clamoring for “Johnny Footbal”! Hear is a thought,.. if you find yourself wanting to post about the same guy every day,… think better of it!

    LMAO…I can back that up.

    @Martinii …no offense but every time I see your name, I think of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Probably because JBF reminds me of it sometimes.

  26. Buc1987 Says:

    That and well it’s my 2nd fav movie of all time.

  27. Couch Fan Says:

    Why exactly would you “hit the vodka early” ? Is having a competent back up QB that bad?… I know you say you have nothing against Glennon but seems like you are so desperate to get him out of Tampa.

  28. Trubucfan22 Says:

    As i always assumed, teams are not really interested in glennon to be a starting QB. He is not instant starter upgrade for any team. For a flyer, a team could maybe bring him in to compete with a rookie and mentor him when the rookie wins the competition. But no one is trading for him to be their future star QB. That is blind optimism for even the most devoted mgm members.

    The bucs have no choice but to keep glennon for the year, or trade him to the 9ers for a 6th round pick. Tbh trading him for anything is fine with me. We invested a roster spot for Ryan Griffin. They obviously see him as the bucs future back up QB. Get anything you can for glennon and just walk away with something rather than nothing.

  29. Pat Says:

    Whenever Koetter looks at MG8, he is thanking the Man above to have a Ryanesque qb in his arsenal. EMBRACE MG8

  30. Couch Fan Says:

    For those that say, he’ll leave after the season and we’ll get nothing. Thats completely false. We’ve gotten 4 years of competent QB play on the cheap as well as him having a big hand in running Loser Freewee out of town. For that I say job well done Glennon and best of luck to you wherever you end up. This Bucs fan will always appreciate you.

  31. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    I still think Glennon will sign an extension.

  32. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Buc1987 Says
    “Unfortunately, Joe has been trying to run MG8 out of town, errrr I mean, trade MG8 for 3 years now!!!”

    Not true at all. I seem to recall Joe declaring himself “The General” of the Mike Glennon Mob for one of those years.

  33. finishers Says:

    I’ll say it again, I HATE This Time Of Year!!!!!!

  34. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    @Couch Fan

    I like the way you lay it out, bro.

    I’ll add this…people are making assumptions that offers are not coming in without knowing anything about it. Things like this mean nothing. Do people think Licht would have turned down a (rumored) late 2nd round pick if he wasn’t getting other offers?

    I believe there are offers contingent on the draft. But even if there isn’t, I think people assuming Mike Glennon won’t sign a new deal with the Bucs are making some leaps.

    IF there isn’t a market for him, then he may well feel satisfied to sign a 2 year extension with a slight increase in salary.

  35. BuccaneerBonzai Says:


    Ryan Griffin is nowhere near a good backup. He had a losing record in college. The Bucs need a backup that has the real potential to win games if Winston goes down so they don’t losing in the standings.

    Frankly, I would offer MG a decent salary to stay, unless an irresistible offer comes through.

  36. DallasBuc Says:

    Take Foles all day over Glennon. Please?

  37. Anthony Says:

    Joe also tore apart the bucs when they lost to foles in tampa when the Eagles came to town

  38. James Walker Says:

    Glennon is far better than Foles. Foles has been on supposedly “good” teams and stunk it up. Glennon excelled in one of the worst NFL teams ever.

  39. NCMike Says:

    I’m surprised the joes haven’t out a post about a MG trade this evening. I mean the Jets just traded for Clady from Denver. Must mean the trade is moving forward! Lol

  40. NCMike Says:

    Put out a post*

  41. Buccfan37 Says:

    At this point I would like to see Glennon go to another team and lead them to the playoffs. Last laugh. Old cement shoes giraffe beanpole gets it.

  42. NCMike Says:

    I’m right there with you 37

  43. NCMike Says:

    I think this whole dump MG thing is a joke. What if he resigned with TB and we make to the playoffs and then JW gets hurt? You gonna want a scrub to hold it down or a player that keep you on track?

  44. Bucs SB with Jameis Says:

    Honestly, I can see what 37 says coming true because Nobody can square their mouth right enough to say that MG was ever given a fair shot here. IF they do then they don’t actually watch the Bucs. However, there is no way that we should keep MG on the roster for this yr and get nothing in return when he walks next yr. I think we should all stick to our own respective professions and let Licht do his job.

  45. Getaclue Says:

    I’m sure there are teams that want glennon and his salary NOW before they have to commit to pay huge money. This is why I don’t buy into the “teams will just wait till he is a free agent”. That’s a significant financial investment that a team can see how he plays before making that commitment by trading for him now without the risk of flushing millions down the drain and setting their team into cap hell.

  46. cmurda Says:

    If the Bucs can get a 4th rd pick and said 4th rd pick is a mid round or better, you take the trade. There is no guarantee that Glennon’s comp pick is a 4th rd or better and that will mean it will be at the tail end of the round. I would hold out in hopes of landing a 3rd rounder but take the 4th rounder shortly before the draft. So many of you are overvaluing Glennon as a backup for us. Glennon’s value as a backup to us is slim to none. If we find ourselves needing Glennon early on, then we are going to be picking in the top 10 again next year. Sorry, but it’s true.

  47. DallasBuc Says:

    Foles. Nick effin Foles straight wins football games in the NFL. If he ever happened to Tampa with that win record they might already be designing a bridge name change.
    Stop it.

  48. Couch Fan Says:

    Glennon’s value as a backup to us is slim to none
    If that were true, he’d be gone already for peanuts. But its not true.

  49. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Why come here to insult Joe? –Joe

  50. demBoysFromDaBay727 Says:

    It looks doubtful as of now for a trade but wait till training camp and preason to start. All it takes is one injury to a starting QB and teams are scrambling for a reliable option and who better then napoleon dynamite a.k.a M.Glennon.

    That’s what the bucs are banking on, and if not they have a reliable backup for the young and reckless Winston. We all seen how he sacrificed his body for a couple extra yards last season and im sure the bucs took notice as well. that’s probably why there not in any rush to trade #8.

  51. demBoysFromDaBay727 Says:

    And sorry folks but Glennon is NOT better than Foles, as much as i,like Glennon he did.not throw 28 TD’s to 2 INT’s. When a QB can put stats up like that, he’s pretty darn good. Now he has not maintained that level of play since, but is still a decent starting QB.

    They are similar type players, tall lanky, stand in the pocket guys with Foles being a little more athletic than Glennon. who isnt tho?

  52. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    You people are way, waaay too impatient.

    There is plenty of time for a trade. Plenty of time.

    And just because we’re not hearing anything, that means nothing. Licht is tight-lipped as always. If you trust the man, trust that he will get us that 2nd round pick.

    Don’t assume because of the silence that it isn’t possible. Media heads know as little as anyone else. They are all guessing.

  53. Pick6 Says:

    unless the rams are targeting glennon?

  54. Pick6 Says:

    i think foles has missed games due to injury every year of his career. maybe with one or two exceptions, but overall that is the main thing i remember him for other than that one anomolous year where he threw almost no INTs
