This is like the 2013 season all over again but with different regimes and different players involved in trade speculation so if you’re hoping for Darrelle Revis‘ name in here, move along.
It’s been long reported that the Buccaneers may be moving backup quarterback Mike Glennon. Although the team thinks highly of him, general manager Jason Licht recently revealed that they have in fact had discussions with teams on dealing Glennon.
“We’re open to discuss things, we have been open, we’ve been talking to a lot of teams,” Licht said on PFT Live. “That’s dwindled now to a few teams. We’re still talking.”
One of those few teams is the New York Jets. In several sightings stemming from the Jets own website back in 2013 to as recently as NFL.com on Tuesday, the link between the former NC State product and New York’s AFC version of football has been talked about often. But the latest with defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson continues to be a topic of discussion and just like in 2013 when there were rumors of a Bucs-Revis marriage, this has the same feel to some degree.
As our friends over at Joe Bucs Fan put it, it would be difficult to imagine that Licht and the Buccaneers would let Glennon go for practically nothing. A package to trade for Wilkerson could make up for their loss given the love and admiration for the 26-year-old signal caller. There’s just too much smoke here to ignore.
