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

Competitive 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.

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.

Competitive 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.

Competitive 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.

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.

Glennon said on his radio show Tuesday that Josh McCown will start Sunday against the Falcons, Jenna Laine of FOX Sports 1 reports.

Coach Lovie Smith has yet to confirm, but he did leave open the possibility McCown could return to the starting role when asked about his quarterback situation Monday. Glennon led Tampa to a win over the Steelers in his first start of the year, but the team has dropped four straight, with Glennon completing just over 50 percent of his passes with two interceptions in Week 9. Likewise, McCown struggled in his first three starts, averaging just 6.18 yards per attempts, but the Buccaneers gave him a two-year deal in the offseason and it makes sense that they would want to get another look at him.

Glennon completed 17 of 33 passes for 260 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday against the Browns. He also added 17 rushing yards on three carries.

Glennon connected with just five different receivers, with rookie wideout Mike Evans leading the way by catching seven passes on 11 targets for 124 yards and two touchdowns. While it was a decent performance, the Bucs lost again, which will only add to the talk of brining Josh McCown back into the fold now that he's fully recovered from his thumb injury. If there's a silver lining, it's that the Bucs take on the Falcons in Week 10, a team that is allowing the third-most passing yards per game this season.

Though Josh McCown is past his thumb issue, Glennon is slated to remain the Bucs' starter at quarterback, NFL.com reports.

When asked Monday about a potential change at quarterback on the part of the 1-6 Bucs, coach Lovie Smith noted, "we stand where we were last week. The plan isn't for (a change)." Glennon is thus on track to start this coming Sunday's game against the Browns, who have allowed an average of 252 passing yards per game thus far. On the heels of a Week 8 effort in which Glennon completed 19-of-28 for 171 yards, with one touchdown and an interception against the Vikings, the quarterback is not a high-percentage play this weekend, but with six teams on bye, he may be an option for owners in deep leagues who are digging deep for a signal-caller.
