Report: Cardinals Tried Trading For Bucs QB Mike Glennon


Prior to the NFL Draft, reports came out that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were shopping quarterback Mike Glennon. Glennon never got traded and it looks like he’ll be entering the 2014 season as the team’s starting QB.

The Arizona Cardinals reportedly inquired about Glennon. According to Phoenix’s KGME-AM, Bucs general manager Jason Licht confirmed to the station that the Cards were one of the teams that inquired about Glennon.

Arizona will enter the season with Carson Palmer as their starter. Palmer is 35 years old, so you could see why they inquired about Glennon, who could take over the job once Palmer’s days are over.

The Cardinals drafted Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas in the fourth round of the draft. They are hoping he can become the future QB of the franchise. In addition, Arizona also has QBs Ryan Lindley and Drw Stanton on the roster.

Glennon, 24, did pretty well in his rookie season last year. The third-rounder threw for 2,608 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions, along with a 83.9 rating.
