The Buccaneers surprised some people by declaring Mike Glennon their quarterback of the future.

But they backed it up this weekend by turning away at least six requests for a trade, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

There’s a lot of interest and we want to keep Mike,’' Bucs General Manager Jason Licht said. "[They were] just feeling it out. I know that Mike has a very good reputation throughout the league as far as his developmental future.’'

Glennon was a third-rounder last year, and only five quarterbacks were taken that highly this year. But while the Bucs brought in Josh McCown to be their starter this year, Glennon showed enough last year to make him worth some more time.
