The Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought in Lovie Smith for the 2014 season but the new coach says last years starter remains in the teams plans.
“You know how much I like Josh McCown as our starter. But I love Mike Glennon. Mike Glennon is our quarterback of the future here.”

When the Buccanners drafted at No. 7 only Blake Bortles had come off the board. That the Buccaneers did not draft a quarterback in the first round is hardly a surprise after they signed Josh McCown to a two-year deal.
Smith’s comments should be taken with a grain of salt but it is worth noting that Glennon tossed 19 touchdowns to just nine interceptions a season ago.
