The Buccaneers rebuffed trade requests from at least a half dozen teams for quarterback Mike Glennon, some of which inquired multiple times during the NFL draft.
In fact, those teams said they regarded Glennon as a better quarterback than most of the prospects available during the three-day selection show.
But the Bucs consider Glennon their 'quarterback of the future,' and have no intentions of dealing the second-year pro.
Glennon's future in Tampa looks brighter after the team elected not to draft a quarterback. He was the best rookie passer in 2013, but that's not saying much. He'll have a chance to learn behind Josh McCown before getting his second crack at the starting job.
