NFL Notes: Mike Glennon, Buccaneers, Chargers & Panthers

Mike Glennon

  • A source tells Jason Cole that the Buccaneers are not shopping QB Mike Glennon, nor have they received any calls about him.

Buccaneers

Buccaneers new HC Dirk Koetter told reporters Wednesday that Cameron Brate is working as the team’s No. 1 tight end, ahead of Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

“I don’t think it’s any big secret that Cam’s been working with the first group,” Koetter said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “We’re deep at tight end and Cam’s at the top of the depth right now. (Seferian-Jenkins) is working hard, working at it. Austin’s trying to get better every day. … Austin’s working at it and that’s all he can do right now. He’s just got to work. That’s all anybody that’s fighting for a job can do. The guys that are playing the best are going to play.

“Catching up for some guys is knowing what they’re doing. Catching up for other guys is you’ve got to play better, and he falls into that category.

Chargers

  • Pro Football Talk reports that there still were no talks between Chargers and first-round DE Joey Bosa on Tuesday.
  • The two parties reportedly haven’t spoken since last Thursday regarding the contractual details still remaining. (NFLTR)

Panthers

Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer writes that the Panthers’ deep defensive tackle group will likely lead to them making some tough decisions in the coming weeks.

In fact, HC Ron Rivera admitted as much.

“It’s a great battle. And it’s going to be one of our tough decisions,” Ron Rivera said. “Because as a coach you’re always concerned that you may have to release a really good football player.”

“When we start getting ready to get to the numbers, if our sixth defensive tackle is better than our fifth defensive end or our seventh linebacker, we most certainly can carry that extra guy,” Rivera added. “But they’ve done a great job.”

Person considers Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei and first-round pick Vernon Butler to be locks to make the team. However, this leaves veteran Paul Soliai and Kyle Love fighting for a single roster spot.

  • Panthers activated CB Bene Benwikere (leg) from the active/PUP list.
