Dry Market For Glennon

February 13th, 2017

The next Brock Osweiler?

Recently Joe brought word from a national quarterback analyst of some repute who stated no teams are interested in making Bucs backup quarterback and current free agent Mike Glennon a wealthy man.

Now comes news from long-time Bucs beat guy Woody Cummings. He claims that when teams had a chance to contact Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht to propose a Glennon trade last year, Licht’s cell phone fell silent, so Cummings types for FanRagSports.com.

Interest in Glennon has been deteriorating steadily … with Licht fielding only a couple of trade inquiries two years ago and none during last year’s draft or before the 2016 trade deadline.

Despite this revelation, Cummings seems to hint that what Adam Schefter of BSPN wrote near the end of the season is not a fallacy: a team is going to pay Glennon like the next Brock Osweiler.

Well, Joe isn’t seeing the pattern.

Sober team executives, when they propose a trade, initially make a low offer, like when you buy a car.

Given that teams (plural) allegdly didn’t call Licht to even offer a mid- to low-rung draft pick for Glennon speaks volumes. If teams weren’t willing to cough up a second- or third-day draft pick for Glennon, why would they be willing to pay him $13 million+ a year when he could have been had on the cheap?

Well, as they always say in NFL circles, it only takes one (general manager).

    The Brock Osweiler effect is hurting Glennon. No GM is going to throw money at Glennon who has yet to prove himself as an NFL starter, especially after just watching the Osweiler train wreck take place.

  2. DallasBuc Says:

    He will be Brady’s backup in NE after Garropolo gets the franchise deal that Glennon wants.

    I have heard and read on several occasions that regardless who is playing back-up to Jameis, if he goes down the season is over for Tampa. While I believe that is painting reality with a broad brush It can’t be denied because thankfully Jameis has remained healthy. We have not had to test that Hypothesis. I agree that Mike is probably not going to be starting for another team in 2017. It is apparent with few exceptions that teams are not scrambling for his service. For these two reasons I believe his value lies with his experience and Knowledge of the Buc’s system and for a reasonable price he should remain our Back-up QB.

  4. The Buc Realist Says:

    I would not expect “hot” interest in MG8 to be known!!! That would be a popstar move that would drive up the price against themselves!!!!!!

    The word on the street is that Arizona is very interested, and if their QB retires than MG8 will be the #1 target in free agency!!!!!

  5. Nole on Sat- Bucc on Sun Says:

    Man what Dallas said.

  6. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I wish we could comment in the Big Dog article, but I get why comments are locked. There are some people who are spiteful enough to jump on such things.

    On topic, only the teams that constantly make dumb moves will sign him as a starter. So that’s who? The Browns? Jets? 49ers?

  7. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    @The Buc Realist

    You always quote this ‘word on the street’, lol.

  8. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I don’t see NE taking him. I realize they have a habit of drafting QBs and making them look good, then trading them away (and they eventually bust), but at some point they need to start thinking about Brady’s heir…and he’s pretty up there in age now. What does he have left to accomplish?

  9. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    Agree about the Big Dog piece with no comments but like you I understand why the Joes had to do it. Some of the hatred in this country is appalling.

    I didn’t always agree with him…should make that present tense because he’s going to keep on keeping on but I wish him the best in this battle.

    People forget “celebrities” and “athletes/coaches” are actual human beings with families. I know Big Dog was crazy proud of his daughter and I hope for both of their sakes he has a successful outcome.

    As for MG8…last year in preseason it’s clear with total lack of playing time his skills seem to be deteriorating. Either that or he just had a horrid pre season and it’s a very small sample. He doesn’t have outstanding leadership skills that for sure but Matt Ryan doesn’t impress me as having Jameis like leadership either and he was just the MVP of the league. Again more than one way to skin the cat.

  10. Tampa Tony Says:

    If anyone has seen him play it’s a no brainer why there is no market for him. If you can’t complete passes in pre season against vanilla base defense’s playing 2nd and 3rd teamers what makes anyone think he can do it against starters?

    Dude is awful

  11. Chris Says:

    A simple google of Glennon found that repirtedly Todd Bowles loves him in NY and if Carson Palmer doesn’t come back to Arizona, they’re interested

  12. Chris Says:


  13. Joeypoppems Says:

    Pretty sure Carson Palmer already said he was playing in 2017. I could be wrong tho.

  14. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Stpetebucsfan, I know exactly what dog is going through too. I had a very close friend go through the exact same thing. Worked for the military doing weapon design and on his way home he passed out…turned out to be brain cancer.

    So far as MG8, I look at it like this…he was aware that his contract would be expiring. He could have taken steps during each off season to get special training in order to improve himself. He could have attended these get togethers that Winston does. He could have approached elite QBs with similar playing styles to get help.

    But he just did not take the initiative.

    And I bet the teams see that too.

  15. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Palmer is playing in 2017

  16. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Well…until he gets injured again…

  17. The Buc Realist Says:


    It was not the Joe’s decision. said person had removed that option!!! in fact the other Bucs site that was partnered before joe, was let go because of the forum they had and they would comment on him! and they could not delete it fast enough!!!! But like The Commish said, when someone laughs and parties when people get fired, its hard to feel sympathy for!!! When you play “ding, dong the witch is dead” when a coach that is not in the Tampa2 mafia, it might rub some people the wrong way!!! So I am glad the comments are off!!! As they say, “if you cannot say something nice, do not say it all!!!” leave the comments off Joe!!!!

  18. Stpetebucsfan Says:


    I hear ya. My mother always said “If you can’t say something nice about someone then say nothing at all”. Sometimes I am left speechless.

    I think a person’s professional performance is worthy of criticism whether it be good or bad…fair or unbalanced. I do not think folks who dissed Lovie or GMC based on their professional performance are haters. When it gets personal though count me out.

    Of course sometimes we posters disagree as well…considering how opinionated I’ve been here I’m amazed that only ONE poster has attacked me personally. It was actually pretty funny because the attack was pretty much 5th grade level insults about my “masculinity”. I’m old enough now that I don’t have to worry about that crap anymore.

    Big Dog professionally made his living with his sometimes controversial takes…that was his job. When I was on the air paying attention to such stuff I quickly learned that the more intensely popular someone was…the more hated they were on the other side. Big Dog generated heated conversation…it is his job. But on a personal level I can feel his pain…again perhaps since my son was just in town I can’t help but think of his daughter.

  19. NashvilleBuc Says:

    Agree with Dallas and NosBos on this one.

  20. Bobby M. Says:

    The guys started last year….
    Josh McClown
    RG ME
    Blake Bortles
    Ryan Fitzpatrick
    Case Keenum
    Trevor Sieman
    Blaine Gabbert
    Sam Bradford
    Tyrod Taylor

    Glennon will get an opportunity if teams were willing to roll out those guys. The local media and Bucs PR are planting doubt hoping to get Glennon to take a deal.

  21. D-Rome Says:

    In limited action vs. Atlanta in the regular season Glennon went 10-11, 75 yards with 1 TD, 0 INT, and a QBR of 125.4. Someone will look at that and wonder the possibilities. 🙂

  22. buc15 Says:

    Wouldn’t it be sweet to lock him up as Winston’s backup for a couple mil per year?

  23. The Buc Realist Says:


    “Word on the street” (thats for you bonzai) is that last year there was a multi-year extension for MG8 that was 6 million a year and he walked away from!!! so it might take more than a “couple of mil per yer”!!!!!!!!!

  24. LakeLandBuc Says:

    I seriously doubt that Mike Glennon is getting interest from teams.

  25. tmaxcon Says:

    Glennon’s biggest concern is studying for the Series 7 license or Insurance License depending on what field he chooses to support his family. He is clearly not a football player.

  26. Bucsfanman Says:

    With no market for him, would it be terrible for him to re-sign as Jameis’ back-up?

  27. Joe Says:

    It was not the Joe’s decision. said person had removed that option!!!

    Joe’s decision fully because people cannot behave.

    Joe’s run off long-time commenters because of this. So in a way, this move is to protect others from being banned.

  28. Joe Says:

    I have heard and read on several occasions that regardless who is playing back-up to Jameis, if he goes down the season is over for Tampa.

    When is the last time a team won a Super Bowl with a backup quarterback? Trent Dilfer. Before that, Jeff Hostettler.

    Common denominator? Both teams had world-class defenses. The Bucs almost made a Super Bowl with Shaun King. World class defense, again.

    Joe isn’t sure the current Bucs defense, while good, is that good.

  29. The Buc Realist Says:


    That is not the point!!!! How many teams that won a superbowl had the starting QB play all 16 games and all playoff games and superbowl!!!!

  30. Buccfan37 Says:

    Hey hey hey we’re the Buccaneers, ho ho ho we’re the Buccaneers, offense defense now we’re here to say, make the giraffe walk the plank, throw him in Tampa Bay, Hey! Am I correct?

  31. Joe Says:

    That is not the point!!!! How many teams that won a superbowl had the starting QB play all 16 games and all playoff games and superbowl!!!!


  32. The Buc Realist Says:


    not the last 2!!!!!! and if you look, you might be surprised how many did not play all 16 games, all playoffs and superbowl!!!!

    every now and then some QB’s will miss 1-2- or 4 games!!!! I get it if JW3 is gone for 4 or more games, then yes, the season is most likely over!!!!

    But 1 or 2 games and have a Backup QB go .500 can mean a difference in the final standings!!!!!!

  33. Tampa Tony Says:

    @realist- it’s only happened 7 times in the last 23 Super Bowls. 1 because of an unjust suspension and 2 cases was because Big Ben can’t stay healthy.

  34. Pickgrin Says:

    Glennon will get a better offer than the Bucs will be willing to pay for a back-up QB. Of that I am pretty confident. It won’t be $12M or anything like that – but it will be enough to price the Bucs out of keeping him. Probably $7-8Mish on a 2 year deal is my guess. Arizona – Jets – some team like that will pony up some scratch to take a chance on Glennon as a potential starter.
