Found January 28, 2014 on The Bay Cave:

New Buccaneers’ general manager Jason Licht is know for his talent evaluation throughout league circles. You can say he knows a thing or two when it comes to evaluating talent after being a part of  the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, and Arizona Cardinals. Just days after Licht spoke at his introductory press conference and talked about quarterback Mike Glennon’s bright future, he again spoke to the degree of praising the Buccaneers’ young signal caller.  Appearing on the Booger and Rich show on 98.7 The Fan, Licht stated he is excited to work with the Bucs’ 2013 third round pick. “Like I said the other day at my press conference, He’s an accurate guy, he’s a tough guy, I know he is a very smart guy. So you have those three things going for you, you have a real shot,” Licht said when asked about his evaluations of Glennon. “Now I know he had a stretch of games where he looked really good and some other stretches where he looked like a rookie playing for the first time in the NFL. But it’s unfair to really judge a guy his rookie year. That position takes a little bit of time. Based off of what I saw, I’m excited and I think the kid has a chance.” Licht would go on to say that he would still like to see Glennon’s play firsthand and wants the offseason to play itself out. He would add “you are always looking for a Tom Brady” when he talked about competition as well. And to point out the obvious, the Bucs will have to go out and address the position in free agency. They currently have Glennon and Jordan Rodgers as the quarterbacks heading into 2014. However, Licht’s words are consistent with what he said at his presser as well as on PFT Live. Initial indications are that he is willing to go forward with Glennon as the starter. At least for 2014. Follow Gil on Twitter: @GilArciaTBC

NFL Draft Outlook: Quarterbacks

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have yet to have a quarterback that can put the team on his back and take them on through the season and on to the Super Bowl.
