Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach Greg Schiano has been adamant in his belief that third-round draft pick Mike Glennon is capable of becoming an NFL starter. He’s taken it one step further and proclaimed Glennon is capable of challenging Josh Freeman for the starting QB job in Tampa:
Schiano said he believes Glennon “can play quickly” if he is needed. “But our situation will be only if he’s needed,” he said. “Or if he wins the job. Look, I’m not against that. We have a starting quarterback. It’s not like we’re looking to find a starter. But competition is competition. Mike Glennon is a fierce competitor. I knew that when he was coming out of high school. Now being able to work with him a little, you can see it on the practice field.”
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has had problems throughout his career with turnovers, the biggest culprit being his lack of ball security which has lead to 87 career fumbles, the 23rd-most in NFL history. Now he says new Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly has taught him how to properly hold the football while running.
ESPN Cleveland reports the New York Jets really wanted QB Brian Hoyer before he signed with the Cleveland Browns. This is a clear signal the Jets don’t want Mark Sanchez on the roster when the 2013 season opens, and are looking for anyone to come in and be an adequate veteran backup in case Geno Smith isn’t ready to become the starter.
