Bucs sign QB Mike Glennon; entire rookie class now under contract
Bucs third-round draft choice Mike Glennon, a quarterback from North Carolina State, has signed a four-year contract.
The Bucs now have their entire six-man rookie class under contract well before the team reports for training camp in late July.
The 2011 collective bargaining agreement simplified the process of signing draft picks by establishing firm salary ranges based on where a player is picked. Details on the deal that Glennon signed aren’t yet available, but as the 73rd overall choice, his contract is likely slightly north of the one signed by last year’s pick at the same slot. Chargers safety Brandon Taylor, from LSU, signed a four-year, $2.743 million deal with a $643,876 signing bonus.
Glennon started 26 games at N.C. State, completing 60.4 percent of his attempts for 7,411 yards and 63 touchdowns.
