Bucs rookie QB Mike Glennon pushing Josh Freeman?

Josh Freeman @JF5x's disappointing 2012 season led to pre-draft speculation about the Bucs possibly selecting a QB in the early rounds. Former NC State passer Mike Glennon might not have been the obvious option, but that is who Tampa bay selected in the third. According to one report, the Bucs preferred Glennon over E.J. Manuel, selected in the first round by the Bills. The 6-foot-6 passer apparently dazzled during Tampa's minicamp to the point Mark Cook with the Pewter Report believes Glennon could start if Freeman struggles this season.

Fantasy Analysis:

Every team post-draft says they got the guy they wanted so we can probably dismiss the Glennon over Manuel talk. However, Glennon starting over Freeman at some point, that is worth remembering. Though a rather polarizing prospect coming out because of his penchant for missing on some rather basic throws, the the Northern Virginia native certainly has his supporters. On the other side, Freeman certainly has his detractors after completing only 54.8 percent of his passes and tossing 17 interceptions. The four-year veteran will start the season under center, but would be wise to not struggle early on, just saying.
