Bucs' Glennon, David pick up NFL honors
Riding a three-game winning streak, the Bucs are playing well enough to pick up league-wide honors, as quarterback Mike Glennon was announced Wednesday as the NFL's Rookie of the Month for November, while linebacker Lavonte David was honored as the NFL Defensive Player of the Week.
Glennon had a strong month, throwing for seven touchdowns and just one interception in four games, totaling 785 yards and completing 70.5 percent of his passes. In addition to wins against Miami, Atlanta and Detroit, the Bucs nearly won at Seattle, seeing a 21-0 lead disappear in an overtime loss. Glennon leads all rookies with 13 touchdown passes this season, setting the Bucs rookie record already as well.
David had a team-high 12 tackles in Sunday's win at Detroit, with his second interception of the season and a forced fumble as well. He's the only player in the NFL with at least 90 tackles, five sacks and an interception, showing his versatility in making a strong case for the Pro Bowl.
BUCS ADD TIGHT END: With Tom Crabtree going on injured reserve with a torn biceps muscle, the Bucs signed third-year tight end Kyle Adams, a Purdue graduate who caught four passes for 40 yards with the Bears last season. Adams was with the Bears in preseason before getting cut twice in September. He joins rookie Tim Wright as the Bucs' only tight ends on roster.
