With the limited amount of quarterbacks remaining on the market, the Denver Broncos might have another target via trade. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon could be on the trading block. Would he be a good option for the Broncos?
Alright, the Denver Broncos still have Mark Sanchez. It seems just like yesterday that there were mixed reviews about the trade. But the team is still looking for another quarterback.
If you look at every quarterback that is available either through free agency or in a trade, I am certain the Denver Broncos have been linked to that player.
With Robert Griffin III in Cleveland now, the market for the Broncos in regards to quarterback got a bit slimmer. However, there is one name that has popped up as of recently.
Mike Glennon of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is quite an interesting option for the Denver Broncos. While Glennon has only won five starts in 18 games, his numbers have not been terrible by any means.
In his rookie campaign back in 2013, Glennon finished with a 4-9 record as a starter. He took over for Josh Freeman after an 0-3 start to the season. Even though the record was well under .500, Glennon was able to compile over 2,600 passing yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
Not too shabby. The numbers were enough to place him on the All-Rookie team that year.
In 2014, he led the Buccaneers to a huge win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, throwing the game winning touchdown to Vincent Jackson with seven seconds to go in the game. However, it would be his only win in 2014 as the Bucs went 2-14 that year.
With Jameis Winston the quarterback, Mike Glennon might not see the field unless he goes to another team.
Which finally leads us to the question. Should the Denver Broncos trade for Mike Glennon and would he be a good option for the Broncos? Well, as I have stated earlier, he may not have a flashy record but his stats are pretty solid.
From what I have seen on film, he has a pretty solid arm. He can zip it in there for the wide outs on the run or he can launch one up and complete 40-50 yard passes. His mobility is solid as well.
With a team like the Broncos, Glennon could be a great fit. What could prevent a trade from happening is the asking price. Recent reports have said that a top end draft pick could pry Glennon from the Bucs.
Another reason why a trade for Mike Glennon could not happen is the prospect of losing insurance. What is Winston was to get hurt? There have been instances where a season was sunk because a starter went down and the backup did not perform well.
After looking at all of that, I don’t see why the Broncos don’t take a chance at Glennon. I personally like him and think he could fit the offense well. Surround him with the talent the Broncos have on offense and a solid offensive line and he will succeed.
It will be interesting to see if the Broncos begin trade talks to acquire Mike Glennon. If the Colin Kaepernick trade does not work, I can see this happening. However, only for the right price.
