Buccaneers Still Unlikely To Trade QB Mike Glennon, Could Consider An Extension?

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers are unlikely to trade backup QB Mike Glennon, despite speculation that he could be a trade option for quarterback-needy teams.

Stroud adds that the Bucs most likely wouldn’t part with Glennon for anything less than a mid-round pick.

Interestingly enough, Stroud writes that there’s at least a chance that Bucs GM Jason Licht could explore the possibility of signing of Glennon to a contract extension that includes a “considerable salary.”

Stroud mentions that even if the Bucs were to sign Glennon to an extension that would pay him over $7 million annually to be their backup, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that another team could still value him as an asset worth trading for.

Glennon has been a popular name in trade rumors for a while now. However, nothing has come of the speculation, and he’s now in line to be an unrestricted free agent in 2017.

Glennon, 25, will be entering the fourth year of his four-year, $3.104 million rookie contract and stands to make a reasonable base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2014, Glennon appeared in six games for the Buccaneers and threw for 1,417 yards while completing 57.6 percent of his passes to go along with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions.
