03:46 AM ET 05.16 | The Tampa Bay drafted Mike Glennon in the third round of the NFL Draft this year, and while at the time they tried to quiet rumors that he would come in and compete for the starting job, that tune has changed quickly and the Buccaneers are expected to give Glennon virtually all the snaps in the preseason. General manager Mark Dominik said that Josh Freeman may not see snaps at all. There are quarterback controversies and then there is the coup d'etat going on in Tampa Bay at the moment. It's no secret that head coach Greg Schiano isn't sold on the idea of Josh Freeman leading his team, and the antics at Buccaneers camp right now show that Schiano isn't going to try to hide his desire to overthrow Freeman as the starter. There's no doubt that the Bucs are making a serious push to get Glennon into starting shape and it's yet to be seen if that is meant to motivate Josh Freeman in his contract season or overthrow him and get the change started early.

If Schiano doesn't want Freeman he needs to trade him. Freeman's has starting QB talent and there's probably 20 teams out there who would jump at the chance to sign him. Wonder if Schiano learned his people management skills from Rex Ryan?

Or maybe this is just another completely unfounded pile of rubbish from Fansided.

I don't know. I don't care.

Half of the fans in Tampa don't want Freeman either!

But really, when was the last time you saw "usurp" in a thread title?
