The Mike Glennon era is officially upon us.
Earlier this week the Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they have benched starting quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie Mike Glennon.
Following the announcement, in an interview with TSN, Freeman said that his best case scenario at this point might be a trade out of Tampa Bay.
Buccaneers head coach, Greg Schiano wouldn’t publicly say if Freeman is now considered the teams’ No.2 or No.3 quarterback for Sunday’s game against Arizona.
Earlier in the week, when the initial announcement was made, coach Schiano mentioned that Freeman would be the backup. Now, coming into the game against Arizona, Schiano won’t say anything.
“I just feel like this has been a focus all week,” Schiano said. “I’m not going to go there. Ninety minutes before the game I’m going to name who our 46 active players are.
“I’m locked in now and our team is locked in. I’m done discussing all that other stuff.”
Dan Orlovsky was the Bucs’ third string quarterback so
