Arizona Cardinals a possible match for Mike Glennon

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Bucs could be looking to shop the second-year player.

Last year before the NFL Draft, quarterback Mike Glennon's name kept popping up as a possible target for the Arizona Cardinals. In the end, it was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that selected him and eventually gave him the starting job in his rookie season.

One year later, the Bucs have a new coach in Lovie Smith and a new starting quarterback in Josh McCown, and apparently the Arizona Cardinals are again connected to Glennon.

According to NFL.com's Chris Wesseling, if the Bucs end up drafting a quarterback with the seventh pick in this year's draft, Glennon could be on the trading block. Many believe that the Bucs could pull the trigger on Johnny Manziel.

If on the block, the Cardinals could potentially be a match.

(Cardinals head coach Bruce) Arians has always preferred big, strong-armed quarterbacks for his vertical offense. Glennon conducted a private workout for the Cardinals last season, and NFL Media columnist Michael Silver confirmed the team's interest in the former NC State star as Carson Palmer's eventual successor. We're not buying Arians' contention that Palmer will be under center for the next three or four years.

I can buy that the team had interest in Glennon before the draft, but after his workouts, we don't know if that increased or decreased their interest. The team also got to see Glennon firsthand during the season.

He might actually fit. And the trade would involve a pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, so it would not sacrifice any pick coming up in May. Glennon showed he could play. Depending on the price, it is definitely a possibility.

Of course, this is nothing more than speculation of possible interest at this point -- there is nothing substantive. But if this were to happen, would you welcome a trade for Glennon?
