So what gives with Mike Glennon?

Whats the real story with Glennon? At this point, its still being written. He was a hot topic as soon as the day he was drafted in the 3rd round of the 2013 draft.

Now the “So what gives with Josh Freeman” article is for another day, maybe Schiano saw the...

Top 10 – worst picks in Bucs history

No team has a spotless draft history. Sometimes it feels like the tape lied, skills from college not translating to the next level.

Will he ever be remembered as Baltimore Raven? Again, I wouldn’t imagine so. But on a day...
