TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed third-round draft pick Mike Glennon to a four-year contract.
The former North Carolina State quarterback agreed to terms Wednesday and is participating in the team's three-day mandatory minicamp.
The 6-foot-6 Glennon was the 73rd overall pick in the draft. He threw for 4,031 yards and 31 touchdowns as a senior for the Wolfpack.
With Tampa Bay, Glennon is competing with veteran Dan Orlovsky to be the backup to starter Josh Freeman. There's a good chance the Bucs will carry three quarterbacks on the roster this year, as opposed to two in recent seasons.
Glennon started 26 of 36 games he played in college, completing over 60 percent of his passes for 7,411 yards and 63 TDs.
