Glennon completed one of five passes for minus-one yard with no touchdowns or interceptions in Wednesday's 20-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

The Bucs' presumed No. 2 quarterback didn't see much time in before giving way to Ryan Griffin, playing early into the second quarter before departing. Glennon struggled with the soggy conditions the game was played under, completing his only pass to Brandon Myers for a loss of one yard and also losing the handle as he went to throw on another of his five attempts before falling on the ball and recovering. The performance was clearly an outlier the likes of what a preseason finale in bad weather can easily elicit, and absent an unforseen trade, Glennon is fully expected to resume his backup role behind Jameis Winston come Week 1.

Glennon is a main reason that head coach Dirk Koetter expresses optimism about the team's depth at quarterback and thus is unlikely to be dealt heading into his contract year this season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The five-year veteran appears destined for another season of holding the clipboard behind Jameis Winston, unless a quarterback-needy team comes calling with an offer the Bucs can't refuse. One such squad could conceivably be the Vikings, whose fans voted for Glennon as their top choice to replace the fallen Teddy Bridgewater (knee) in an online poll late Tuesday as reported by Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. However, Koetter appears to value the insurance policy of having a backup in Glennon who started 18 games over his first three seasons in the league, particularly with likely third-string signal-caller Ryan Griffin having yet to take a regular-season snap in the NFL. With Glennon likely on the move next offseason to a potential starting opportunity elsewhere, his presence on the roster in 2016 would provide the Bucs with the luxury of grooming Griffin for one additional season.

Glennon completed 11 of 20 passes for 120 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's 27-21 preseason victory over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Glennon entered the game midway through the second quarter and played until the end of the third period, leading one scoring drive in the process. The fourth-year pro capped off the seven-play, 59-yard possession with a five-yard scoring toss over the middle to Mike James. Glennon's extensive amount of work was at least partly designed to give him some valuable reps in live action, but could have also been an opportunity to continue to showcase his talents around the league to potential trade partners.

Glennon completed 7 of 14 passes for 83 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Thursday's 17-9 preseason loss to the Eagles. He also gained four yards on his sole rush.

EDGE Analysis

The fourth-year signal-caller came in to the contest to start the second quarter and endured three forgettable drives to start, going 1-for-6 with a sack and interception over that span. Glennon was able to somewhat right the ship on the following possession, completing a 30-yard pass down the right sideline to Russell Shepard. A pair of completions to Storm Johnson totaling 31 yards against the Eagles prevent right before the half helped pad the stats, but Glennon had a rough outing overall and was outplayed by third-stringer Ryan Griffin. While he's still the presumed No. 2 quarterback for now, the situation could conceivably change over the course of the remaining three preseason games.

Glennon (personal) missed practice Thursday due to the birth of his child, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old, the subject of constant trade rumors at different points in the offseason, is once again the topic of such conversation due to the recent broken ankle suffered by Cowboys backup QB Kellen Moore, which leaves Dallas with a possible need for an experienced arm behind Tony Romo. However, Glennon's absence Thursday was confirmed to be due to the birth of his son on Wednesday night. In his stead, third-string signal-caller Ryan Griffin took the second-team reps in Thursday's session.

Glennon stands "a good chance" of being traded at some point during the 2016 NFL Draft, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Auman framed the nugget strictly as his perspective on the matter-- without citing any inside knowledge-- but it's hardly the first time that the rumors of Glennon's impending departure have been floated this offseason. The speculation was only upped by the Bucs' signing of CFL journeyman Dan LeFevour on April 19, which left them with four quarterbacks on the roster. With current third-stringer Ryan Griffin having had a year of experience working with head coach Dirk Koetter's system in 2015-- and Glennon's appeal as a young but underused veteran with starting experience-- the conditions could certainly be in place for a trade to a quarterback-needy club. Glennon failed to take a snap as Jameis Winston's immediate backup in 2015, but threw for 4,025 yards and 29 touchdowns over 19 games during the 2013-14 seasons.

Bucs GM Jason Licht has confirmed that several teams have shown interest in trading for Glennon, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Licht confirmed the news Monday at the NFL owners meetings, and stated that trade discussions could continue until the NFL draft. "There's always interest. It's not a secret,'' Licht said. "There's always some interest. We'll see how it goes. We've got some time and this is something that could go all the way to the draft.'' Set to be an unrestricted free agent upon the expiration of his rookie contract next spring, Glennon did not take a single snap from scrimmage as Jameis Winston's backup in 2015. Stroud reports that the New York Jets have been one of the clubs to inquire about Glennon, given their inability to date to come to terms with their starter last season, Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Glennon failed to take a single snap in the 2015 season.

EDGE Analysis

2015 first overall pick Jameis Winston played on every single offensive play of his rookie year, leaving Glennon as a season-long clipboard holder. As was the case at the beginning of the 2014 season when he was usurped by free-agent signee Josh McCown, the third-year pro was predictably a model teammate in handling the situation. Still under Tampa's control for one more season, Glennon will reprise his role in 2016 under what could be the fourth offensive system he's played under in his NFL career. The NC State product has thrown for 4,025 yards, 29 touchdowns and 15 interceptions over 19 career games.

Glennon completed 6 of 13 passes for 64 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

A victim of continued harassment thanks to a porous offensive line, he put together a simple performance that rivaled the one Jameis Winston turned in. Glennon was sacked twice (Winston went down four times and threw a pick).

Glennon is expected to serve as backup to Jameis Winston at quarterback this season, according to ESPN.com.

The subject of countless trade rumors throughout the offseason, Glennon remains the only signal caller on Tampa Bay's roster who has starting experience at the position after Josh McCown signed with the Cleveland Browns. Despite this experience, the Buccaneers' selection of Winston with the No. 1 overall pick leaves Glennon's chances of winning the competition to be listed first on the depth chart to start the season relatively grim.
