Glennon did start five games in 2014

Glennon was thrust into Tampa Bay’s starting lineup as a 2013 third-round draft pick after Josh Freeman’s off-field implosion. Despite throwing 19 touchdowns with nine interceptions, Glennon went 4-9, and coach Greg Schiano and general manager Mark Dominik were fired.

Schiano’s replacement Lovie Smith wasn’t particularly impressed with Glennon, even though the Bucs proceeded to decline trade offers for him. Smith and new GM Jason Licht signed journeyman Josh McCown and immediately designated him as Tampa Bay’s starting quarterback without even staging an open competition for the job.

Glennon did start five games in 2014, but was benched after the Bucs posted a 1-4 record. Nothing that Glennon showed Smith or Licht during Tampa Bay’s 2-14 campaign deterred the Bucs from making Jameis Winston the No. 1 pick in the 2015 draft. Glennon then sat behind Winston for two full seasons, with the lone exception of mop-up duty in a 2016 blowout loss to Atlanta.

For this, ESPN reports that Glennon is set to ink a three-year, $43.5 million contract that includes $19 million guaranteed.

The Broncos simply don’t have that quarterback right now in Siemian or Lynch. In his first year as Denver’s starter, Siemian displayed the earmarks of a middle-of-the-road quarterback who can get your team into the playoffs and not much further. Lynch may have more upside, but as evidenced by his two rookie starts last season, remains the proverbial work-in-progress.
