Mike Glennon was supposed to be the future of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but then the team happened upon the #1 overall pick a few years ago and scooped up Jameis Winston. Glennon has been the backup Quarterback ever since.
But just because he isn’t starting doesn’t mean the Bucs don’t value what he brings to the table. The team is set to make Glennon the highest-paid backup quarterback in the league when free agency starts. They are reportedly set to offer Glennon $14M/year. The interesting part is that Glennon wants to be a starter and has interest in testing free agency.
The Buccaneers offered Mike Glennon a contract that would make him the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL, a source confirms to ESPN’s Adam Caplan.
Glennon, 27, however, wants to be a starting QB and plans to test free agency, according to Caplan.
