Newly hired head coach Lovie Smith “stopped well short” of endorsing Mike Glennon as the starting quarterback for the Buccaneers in 2014 at his introductory press conferencer according to Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com.
Yasinskas expects Tampa Bay to bring in competition for Glennon, who flashed starting-caliber ability as a rookie but lacks ideal mobility and would be better off with a more consistent run game than the Bucs fielded in 2013.
The return of Doug Martin will surely help and sixth-round draft pick Mike James flashed a lot of potential as Martin’s replacement until he was also lost to injury.
The Bucs also need to find better receivers so that Vincent Jackson is no longer a one-man show. Look for Glennon to enter training camp as the heavy favorite to start on Opening Day.
