Is Mike Glennon on the trade block?

When all is said and done, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could end up with more than the six draft picks they presently hold.

General manager Jason Licht previously has made it clear the Bucs are willing to entertain offers to trade down from the seventh overall spot in the draft. Now comes news of the potential for adding another pick or picks.

ESPN’s Adam Caplan told Tampa radio station WDAE (620 AM) that he believes the Bucs are trying to move backup quarterback Mike Glennon. There’s some pretty good logic to that.

Although Glennon started 13 games last season, it was for the previous coaching staff. One of the first moves new coach Lovie Smith made was to go out and sign veteran Josh McCown. Smith promptly named McCown his No. 1 quarterback.

Smith has been complimentary of Glennon, but it’s pretty obvious the coach isn’t enamored with the second-year quarterback. There have been reports that the Bucs might be interested in drafting Johnny Manziel with their first-round pick.

If that happens, Glennon would drop another notch on the depth chart. But, to other teams, Glennon might be more valuable than a third-string quarterback. The Bucs possibly could end up with a mid-round pick in exchange for Glennon. This is one situation to keep an eye on as the draft gets closer.
