Mike Glennon said Tuesday that he still thinks he has a shot at winning the starting quarterback job in Tampa this season despite the addition of Josh McCown in free agency.
The Buccaneers, meanwhile, continue to meet with some of the top quarterback prospects in this year’s draft. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater visited with the team on Monday and Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports that Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo met with the team on Tuesday.
At this point, it’s impossible for anyone but the Bucs to know if they’re meeting with the quarterbacks to keep other teams guessing or if they’re planning to pick a quarterback to move ahead of Glennon as a potential future starter. Garoppolo is likely to come off the board on the second day of the draft while Bridgewater is expected to go in the first round, so the Bucs could go in just about any direction. That will keep other teams on their toes and, potentially, lead someone to jump ahead of the Bucs if they feel there’s a chance of their desired player landing in Tampa.
Both Bridgewater and Garoppolo, who has also visited with the Browns, are slated to visit with the Jaguars on Wednesday.
