Quotable: Mike Glennon's days in Tampa Bay are numbered

The Buccaneers signed Josh McCown and will likely look to add another quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft, leaving Mike Glennon as the odd man out in Tampa Bay.

"It's time for Bucs fans to move on from Mike Glennon. That's exactly what the Buccaneers are set to do, after all."

-Sander Philipse, Bucs Nation

Mike Glennon was the best rookie quarterback in the NFL in 2013; however, it looks as though he won't be around with the Buccaneers in 2014. Sander Philipse of SB Nation's Buccaneers blog, Bucs Nation, is telling fans to resign themselves to the fact that Glennon will not be with the team much longer.

If he is traded away prior to the 2014 NFL Draft, the Buccaneers may be able to receive some draft capital in return, although it's tough to get a measure on what a trade for the 2013 third-rounder would net.

Philipse highlights the New England Patriots, who now employ Greg Schiano as an advisor, as one of five teams that could try to swing a trade for the tall passer.

"A player's not going to try to protect himself if he's trying to make a team."

-Jeff Kopp, former Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker

The career of Russell Allen is over after the former Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker was forced into retirement by a cerebellar stroke suffered in a December game that left a dead spot on his cerebellum. Allen returned to play two more quarters for the Jaguars, which proved to be his last in the NFL.

Now, with his NFL career behind him, Allen is set on warning players of the dangers of ignoring the symptoms of a concussion to stay in the game.

But as explained by Kopp, another a former Jaguars linebacker, that might be easier said than done, particularly among players that aren't "secured" a spot on the roster.

"I hope we get [A.J. McCarron]. I don't know what round we can get him in, but I definitely want him in Tennessee."

-Chance Warmack, Tennessee Titans guard

During his four-year career with the Alabama Crimson Tide, Tennessee Titans offensive lineman Chance Warmack won three BCS National Championships. In two of those championships, he blocked for quarterback A.J. McCarron, and now Warmack is eyeing a potential reunion.

On NFL Network's Path To The Draft, Warmack said that he hopes the Titans will draft the Heisman Trophy runner-up, although he admitted that he wasn't sure what round would be an appropriate spot to do so.

Warmack, 22, was the tenth-overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft and played every offensive snap for the Titans in his rookie season. He's slated to start for the team again in 2014 with Jake Locker behind him, although Warmack doesn't sound like he's too opposed to a different passer running the show instead.

"Every year, there are a few teams that surprise everyone with how good -- or how bad -- they are."

-James Brady, SB Nation

Every year the NFL features good teams inexplicably becoming terrible, while bad teams are all of a sudden Super Bowl contenders. Perhaps no better examples were the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans, who flip-flopped between being owners of the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft and legitimate playoff threats.

It's horribly difficult to predict how things will shake out in any given NFL game, let alone an entire season, but SB Nation's James Brady took his best shot.

At the top of Brady's highlighted teams to potentially turn things around in a hurry in 2014 are the two teams that had the worst records in 2013: the Houston Texans and Washington Redskins.
