“What Market?”

February 10th, 2017

Harsh feedback alleged.

Joe is unfamiliar with this Benjamin Allbright, who worked in Denver radio (but there is no suggestion of any Denver radio work on his LinkedIn resume) and is also a quarterback draft analyst of some repute doing hits on CBS Radio.

The way some Bucs fans want the team to keep backup quarterback and soon-to-be free agent Mike Glennon, a recent Twitter from Allbright might make their day.

Apparently, Allbright has inquired with quarterback-needy teams and the word on Glennon doesn’t seem promising for the North Carolina State product.

@AllbrightNFL: Talkes to a couple league guys and asked about the market for Mike Glennon…

“What market?”

If this is any way accurate, then it may explain why Bucs AC/DC-loving general manager Jason Licht never traded Glennon to a team starved for a quarterback — for an important, precious draft pick(s).

At this point, one can only speculate if Allbright’s information is real, or if he is being played.

    The Brock Osweiler effect and though not great a quarterback heavy draft for those teams looking for a quarterback. Not sure if any of the rooks coming in should be day one starters, so if Glennon went to a team that is going to draft one of those QB’s he would be a bridge player. Maybe he goes to Cali and becomes Shanahans new Mike Ice

    Licht has had the clipboard contract for Glennon collecting dust for a couple of months. Licht is waiting for Glennon to reach out to free agency and realize his best scenario is with the Bucs.

    Glennon will soon see the Licht….

  3. ITH Says:

    He played so badly last preseason he basically locked himself in with the Bucs.

  4. Tnew Says:

    Don’t minimize the Dan Prescott effect. Gms are trying to find that guy again. Many would take a chance on and unknown rather than choose what is known in Glennon. Sidenote to Glennon’s agent. Jim Sorgi had it pretty good

  5. tdtb2015 Says:

    @rrsrq – If Shanahan mentions Glennon to Lynch, Lynch will bring back the good old days with a full body tackle that will bring some sense into him. Then Lynch will remind him there is a Safety in still him. lol

  6. tdtb2015 Says:

    ^ still in him

  7. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I hope someone else signs him, because I don’t want him in Tampa. A good backup is one who is capable of competing to start, that way he either becomes trade bait or can fill in if your starter goes down.

    Mike Glennon doesn’t want to start bad enough. How do I know this? Because he hasn’t worked his tail off to prove he is capable. He could have taken it upon himself to create a market for his services since he’s been here. He could have shown that he’d been working on addressing his weaknesses.

    These are things he could have done in the off seasons or in camps, but all he ever did was just enough to get by. Teams see the lack of fire.

    I don’t want him here at all. We could get someone in who actually is hungry for opportunities.

  8. tmaxcon Says:

    Mike Glennon is irrelevant to the bucs future. I have been saying it for three years. He’s NOT a proven back up either so stop that nonsense. He is a proven 5-13 failure that some of your fools love to make excuses for. Glennon has NO heart or passion for the game thus will never lead a team to a winning record much less the promise land. Good off-season filler but Glennon is irrelevant to the bucs future. Bucs are not going to resign a bum that easily can be replaced with other bums or a draft pick cheaper. Glennon is NOT insurance for Jameis. The offense would have to change so much for the nonathletic heartless bum to be successful that even as a back up he does the bucs no good.

  9. USFBUC Says:

    I think the Bucs will follow the NE way of the backups. We will constantly have a young guy holding the clip board who will get replaced every few years

  10. DB55 Says:

    Mike Glennon is the best …… back up QB ……..on the Bucs. Period. Lol

  11. Erik w/ Clean Athletics 'The Kwon Alexander of Bucs Fans' Says:

    It’s definitely real info, IMO.

    Glennon is the epitome of a backup QB.

    When has there ever been a hot market for a backup QB with garbage recent film?

  12. BurgDweller Says:

    @Buccaneer Bonzai & tmaxcon….thank you for being real and having common sense. I never understood the love for Mike Glennon. Before Winston he had multiple chances to become the starting QB but he didn’t prove he was worthy of the job. No fire in his heart and very little passion. This is the very reason we have Winston now thank goodness!

  13. The Buc Realist Says:

    Word on the street was that MG8 walked away from a 2 year extension from the Bucs worth 6 million a year!!! Just because some guy on twitter says there is no market then is that the case???? Did he say there was a big market for Brock Osweiler last year???? All it takes is one team!!!!

    And I think some of us fall into the trap of comparing MG8 to JW3, when they should be comparing him to the bottom half of the starting QB’s in the NFL!!! The kid does have the “possibility” to start in this league!!!!!

  14. BFFL Says:

    Talk about JW not having a supporting cast well who the hell did Glennon have around him?? Who the hell did Glennon have as his OC?? Now Glennon may prove out to be mediocre but lets please stop pretending like there is any evidence to support that.

    And just because some anonymous dude on a blog says there was word of an extension on the street, should be take him seriously?

    I actually hope there is interest though. Just to get him away from here.

    He had the same guys as Winston, yet clearly, Winston is much, much better.

    AND…Glennon has more experience. AND have you heard anything about Glennon doing anything to improve himself in any of the last few off seasons? Like working with WRs or going to any extra coaching activities? Nope.

    Stop making excuses for the man.

    I’m curious why my comments have been awaiting moderation lately instead of instantly posting? I’m not using any controversial wording as far as I know.

    Anyway, I basically agree with tmaxcon about Glennon.

  18. Buc1987 Says:

    No one cares about Glennon Joe…


    There’s 45 comments in the Trump is the devil thread below.

  19. Buc1987 Says:

    Realist…. Brock Osweiler was current and on a nationally televised team. He looked good to someone apparently.

    Then again so did McCown until he became the tank.

    Glennon ain’t gettin’ Osweiler money.

    If he thinks he can start in the NFL he might just leave for peanuts.

  20. The Buc Realist Says:


    I was comparing the non-hype of Brock Osweiler becoming a free agent!!! There was none. No one was saying that their was a market for BO!!! And yet he was the highest paid free-agent QB of 2016 (for better or worse) !!!!

  22. Joeypoppems Says:

    I dont see a reason to think Glennon cant compete against the Blaine Gabberts, Cody Kesslers, Matt Barkleys and Bryce Pettys of the world. He is a better option than most of the rookies in this draft class too. I can see one of the teams picking in the top 10 that need a QB try to work out a deal with him.

  23. Joe Says:

    Talk about JW not having a supporting cast well who the hell did Glennon have around him??

    A healthy Vincent Jackson, a healthy Louis Murphy, Mike Evans and a drug-free Doug Martin.

  24. PABucsLover Says:

    Maybe we resign him early. Then to a team-starved quarterback, we make a trade for a pick in the draft, based on how the quarterbacks perform at the combine? Just a thought, probably won’t happen but just a thought

  25. Joeypoppems Says:

    If they were gonna trade Glennon it would’ve happened by now.

  26. PRBucFan Says:

    There was a market, but now that he’s about to become a FA it has dissipated. They waited too long. He will be starting somewhere next year.

  27. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Here Edwards just said on BSPN that Jamies threw 28 tds and 24 ints. National media still clueless about the Bucs.

  28. Jameisbucsfan Says:

    I say let him go and get Sean Maguire in the seventh round or free agency

  29. DraftJameis Says:

    If I’m Glennon I take a one year deal every year until I’m the top QB on the market, then I got my Osweiler money. Standing on the sidelines isn’t going to diminish his value, so why enter a market where he has to compete with Romo + Tyrod, who are both better.

  30. Buccfan37 Says:

    A backup NFL QB is a good job if you are good at it. That’s like an average persons dream come true.

  31. Chris Says:

    Apparently Todd Bowles is in love with Glennon, and the Cardinals are interested if Palmer doesnt come back. Amazing what googling Mike Glennons name , what you come up with. Our fans and this site are the only ones who cant see that Glennon had a decent rookie year in this , up until last year, perennialy train wreck of an organization. It would have been like having a good year with the Browns.Like Terrell Pryor, who everyone on this site loves.

  32. Chris Says:

    I mean, I love how I can google and come up with two teams off the bat and this guy names unamed league sources and its gold.

  33. Chris Says:

    Ok Joe, Glennons rookie year, the only year he was given a realistic opportunity to start. His 18-8 year was put together with a wr crew of Vince Jackson, Chris Owosu, and the immortal Skye Dawson. Doug Martin, 456 yrds in one of his injury years, with Bobby Rainey as his replacement.
