Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie QB Mike Glennon has big plans for himself in the NFL. Sure, he's coming into the league as a second-stringer, but if he has his way, he'll soon be running the show. “I just want to be a good teammate,” Glennon said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via JoeBucsFan.com.  “I’m going to be a good teammate to all the guys, to the quarterbacks, to the line, to everybody.  And earn the respect that way and kinda take everything in and listen to what they have to say.  But at the same time, I don’t know if taking a backseat would be the right term because I’m a competitor and I’m going to do whatever I can to compete.  So at the same time, though, I understand I’m a rookie and it’s a process, and I’m just going to worry about getting better each and every day and let things play out that way.” It's a good mindset to have, and that's what a team should want in a backup quarterback. Someone who can at least be ready to go in case of an emergency. Or in Glennon's case, someone who might some day exchange his spot on the bench with incumbemt starterJosh Freeman. Bucs G.M. Mark Dominik is apparently pretty impressed with Glennon, saying earlier that he's be seeing more reps than any other QB on the depth chart during the preseason, which means they want to see more of what he can do.
