Bucs sign Mike Glennon


The Buccaneers have signed all of their draft picks.

They reached that milestone Wednesday by getting quarterback Mike Glennon under contract. The Bucs announced that the third-round pick has agreed to his four-year rookie deal, leaving Tampa with all six of their 2013 selections signed before players scatter for the weeks before training camp.

Glennon will almost certainly back up Josh Freeman this season, although coach Greg Schiano seemed to open the door to more in May when he said he “wasn’t against” Glennon winning the starting job and playing early. Schiano quickly reaffirmed Freeman’s role as the starter, something he’s had to do more than once this offseason, but it would seem to bode well for Glennon that Schiano’s already willing to discuss the possibility of the rookie as a starter.

That will likely have to wait, although with Freeman playing in the final year of his contract the wait may not turn out to be a particularly extended one.
