Mike Glennon doesn't plan to sit behind Freeman

Tampa Bay Buccaneer's quarterback, Mike Glennon doesn't plan to take a "back seat" position behind Josh Freeman.

I just want to be a good teammate, Glennon recently told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via JoeBucsFan.com. Im going to be a good teammate to all the guys, to the quarterbacks, to the line, to everybody. And earn the respect that way and kinda take everything in and listen to what they have to say. But at the same time, I dont know if taking a backseat would be the right term because Im a competitor and Im going to do whatever I can to compete. So at the same time, though, I understand Im a rookie and its a process, and Im just going to worry about getting better each and every day and let things play out that way.

In Tampa, starter Josh Freeman has reason to look over his shoulder. Recently, G.M. Mark Dominik said that Glennon could get more reps than any other quarterback on the depth chart during the preseason. With second-year coach Greg Schiano still not sold on the fifth-year first-round pick, developing Glennon becomes a major priority for the Bucs.
