Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon will 'absolutely' have to compete for starting job

Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon performed well for a rookie after being thrust into the starting job less than a month into the 2013 season. He threw 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games, and while fantasy totals don't give you a great picture on how well a quarterback actually played, Glennon had a stretch in the middle of the season where he topped 15 fantasy points in six of seven games.
But is he the Buccaneers' starting quarterback for 2014. Maybe, but he'll need to fight for that title. Bucs general manager Jason Licht said the team will be looking to add a veteran signal-caller who can come in and push Glennon for the gig.
"New coach, new regime, you can't just hand the keys over and say this guy is our starter," Licht said. "You have to see what he is, and competition drives the best out of everybody. So, that's what we'll be looking for."

Fantasy Analysis:

Michael Vick, Josh McCown, and Matt Cassel are some of the best available free-agent QBs, and they'll be joined by some others who will be released shortly. The Bucs should definitely want to push Glennon, but I think he showed enough as a rookie to say that he could have a real future as Tampa Bay's long-term starter. For fantasy purposes, Glennon is just a mid-range QB2 at the moment who gets marked down because, unlike many other QBs in the league today, he adds zero as a runner.
