Report: Glennon Wants Starter Money

August 31st, 2016

Winston Glennon

The quarterback of the future has no interest in being the backup of the future.

That was the word from Bucs preseason play-by-play man Chris Myers. The renowned national voice told Bucs fans on the local Bucs-Redskins broadcast tonight that the Bucs “have reached out to sign” Mike Glennon, but Glennon isn’t interested. He wants starter money, per Myers.

Keep in mind Myers meets with Bucs officials to prepare for the broadcast and gets his info right from the right sources.

Joe thinks Glennon is gambling when he shouldn’t be. What team is going to put big money in front of Glennon? None.

Glennon would have one hell of a sweet gig in Tampa backing up America’s Quarterback, Jameis Winston. Joe assumes the Bucs would at least drop $10 million in Glennon’s lap for the next few years, after his contract ends after this season.

Take the deal, Mike.

    Glennon must have a fun house mirror in his house if not his head. That’s nonsensical. Perhaps when the Ostrich Osweiler struck gold, the Giraffe Glennon figured…”why not me…I’m tall too”. He’s playing himself out of the league…

  2. Rojas Says:

    Glennon for Patterson ? Why not

  3. Waterboy Says:

    Good luck getting that!

  4. Brian Says:

    The film he has put up this preseason wont get him a damned thing. He’s turrrible.

  5. 911bucs Says:

    Like Joe said “take the deal”…

  6. grafikdetail Says:

    good luck with that glennon…

  7. Couch Fan Says:

    Can’t blame him for wanting to see whats out there. I am positive some team will give him a lot despite what the know it alls on JBF think. Good luck Glennon, go get you that money.

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    I like Glennon. And he may be a starter one day. Many QB’s have to become..Journeymen, get a lot of experience, then get a break. Who knows. But for Tampa? starter money? I say if we can..which we can’t… unload him for a 3 thru 5th rounder while we can.

  9. LocalJoker Says:

    Problem: Nobody wants Glennon. Stalemate!

  10. Mike Says:

    Ummmm…. Glennon doesn’t want to be a back up, so his agent says, you want me to stay give me 10 plus a year. Why would he want to stay?

  11. mike10 Says:

    I just don’t think he wants to be a back up.

    Can’t blame him. He ain’t gettin 10 mil Joe.. Although Licht does overpay

  12. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    And I want Kate Upton…Learned not to hold my breath while waiting, take a hint Mike

  14. mike10 Says:

    Exactly. Let him smell the market, he will come running back for a deal w us.

  15. Tony Says:

    Not one team will.consider Glennon starter material. Not one. There are ten better backups on NFL rosters right now and a deep 2017 QB class. His time has passed.

  16. Rob Says:

    Like Glennon, I want starter money. Also like Glennon, I’m not going to get it.

  17. Sacbuc$ Says:

    Then Why Minnesota didn’t come kick his door down with millions when Teddy 2 gloves got injured. Cut that fool. I knew he was dumping the preseason games. He is way more accurate then what we have been seeing. “Steelers Game”.
    (Speculation)He thought the Organization was wrong for drafting Famous. He act like he didn’t get his chance a few times. He’s been butt hurt ever since they made JW the Capt. Of the SS Buccaneers. Even if MG had been the starter Winston would have took the job the next season anyway. The kids a natural born leader. So I say again cut that fool or get a 5th round. I been said get Paterson months ago check the archives.

  18. THETRUTH Says:

    he has looked terrible every preseason game, I actually feel his value drops everytime we put him out there.

  19. Defense Rules Says:

    Interesting dilemma … for Glennon, not the Bucs. If he didn’t want to be a starter, personally wouldn’t want to keep him as a backup. Does he have a chance to start here? Zip-zero-zilch. Might he get an opportunity to start somewhere else? Possibly. Is it worth it to him to roll the dice and take a gamble? Why not, if he really believes that he’s starter material.

    In the Bucs case, he’s a much better backup at this point than Griffin, and he’s cheap for 2016. Hang onto him and some hurting team (hello Vikes) might offer you a #2 or #3 draft choice or a trade for something you need (like a WR?).

  20. salish_seamonster Says:

    I’m not even sold on Glennon as a backup anymore. He hasn’t done anything in preseason games. We should trade him to anyone who offers a 4th rounder.

  21. 1sparkybuc Says:

    No team will trade for him. Cut him. Don’t waste the roster spot.

  22. Phil Says:

    After his performance last night there is no reason to want him back after this year. Let him walk.

  23. DemBoyzFromDaBay727 Says:

    I actually liked what I saw from Griffin in the second half last night once the rain died down. He could of had another 10 completions for 100 yards had the WR held on to the dam ball. I’m disgusted with the lack of depth at WR. Praying Licht hits the waiver wire.

  24. ToesOnTheLine!!! Says:

    What Defense Rules said above. I will add to those hung up on preseason play…preseason games are an evaluation tool that really is more about “fine tuning” reps for starters, evaluating roster talent (and needs), as well as seeing f there are any hidden gems before final cuts are made. Hell a good portion of the playbook isn’t even being shown yet, so I’ll continue to put far more credence in the regular season body of work Glennon (or any Bucs player) has given us than training camp or preseason play.

  25. BigStinky Says:

    Can’t blame him for wanting more money and NOT wanting to be a backup QB in the league. NOBODY is going to trade for him AND who knows if anyone will even give him a shot to start. Chances are, he is just going to have to go somewhere else that doesn’t have a good QB and compete. Sign a 2 year deal or similar until he shows what he can do to make more money. Playing here with SCRUBS is making him look worse and worse so why not get a fresh start somewhere else? Good luck Glennon
