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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Glennon is a candidate to be traded this offseason, NFL.com reports.The Bucs hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft and it seems likely that they'll tab a QB, either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota. In such a scenario, the Bucs would presumably entertain offers for Glennon, with the report suggesting that the Browns, Bills, Titans and Jets could consider him at the right cost, possibly a third or fourth-round selection.

Coach Lovie Smith confirmed Wednesday that Josh McCown will replace Glennon as the starting quarterback Sunday versus the Falcons, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Since McCown came down with a thumb sprain in Week 3, Glennon has been serviceable under center, averaging 236.2 yards passing per game, with 10 touchdowns versus six interceptions across six contests. However, he's tossed at least one pick in each of the last five outings, and with the Bucs sitting on a dour 1-7 record, Smith has deemed that a change is necessary.
