Mike Glennon may have been replaced as the starting quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but the second-year player still aims to win the job back.

Glennon has been replaced by Josh McCown during this offseason when new head coach, Lovie Smith brought in the veteran from former team Chicago Bears.

McCown has been given a $10 million contract and is fully expected to start the season for the Bucs, however Glennon is not giving up.

He said:  “He (Smith) just said, ‘to start out, there’s got to be a person to start that goes out with the first group first and that person is Josh. Lovie said to me and to the team yesterday the best players are going to play. And I don’t think that’s any different for the quarterback position.”

Glennon guided the Bucs to a 4-12 season last year as a rookie but only featured in 13 of the 16 games after Josh Freeman was benched. 

In addition, the Bucs also had a visit from draft prospect Jimmy Garrapolo who could be brought in to further limit Glennon's chances.
