So much for Mike Glennon thinking he can be the next rookie to become Russell Wilson and banish a team's starter to the bench. That's not going to happen when the head coach continually tells people that the incumbent starter's job is safe. Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano popped on the NFL Network Monday and reiterated that it's Josh Freeman's job, no question about it. “We have a quarterback,” Schiano said. “It is Josh Freeman.  He had a really good spring.  I am really encouraged.  He is going to have a big year.” If Schiano has that much confidence in his starter, then why not sign him to a long-term deal?, PFT's Mike Florio wonders: ' If, after all, he goes on to have a big year, the price for keeping him will go up — perhaps considerably.  And if Freeman gets through his “big year” healthy, the Bucs may have to use the franchise tag to keep him from leaving. In matters of this nature, talk is cheap.  Far cheaper than signing a player to a contract he may not deserve.  If the Bucs are convinced Josh Freeman deserves, it makes more sense to buy his services over the long haul now, before the cost potentially skyrockets.
