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.

Glennon completed 19 of 28 for 171 yards, with one touchdown and one interception Sunday against the Vikings.

Glennon connected with seven different receivers, but generally struggled throughout the game until one drive in the fourth quarter that ended in a seven-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins which put the Bucs up 13-10. It was a pretty disappointing outing coming out of their Week 7 bye, and there could be calls for Josh McCown, who was active Sunday after recovering from a thumb injury. The change may not come next weekend against the Browns, but Glennon, who had six touchdowns in the three games before the bye, appears to have a shorter leash now.

Glennon will start Sunday against the Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Josh McCown was a full participant in practice Friday and looks healthy enough to return from the thumb injury that has kept him out since Week 3, but Glennon has done enough to lead the offense and keep the starting job for at least one more week. It won't be an easy matchup, however, as the Vikings are allowing just 219.7 passing yards per game, good for ninth-best in the NFL.
