The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched ineffective quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie Mike Glennon for Sunday's home game against Arizona, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday.
That's a reversal from what Coach Greg Schiano said two days earlier when he told reporters Freeman remained the starter.
The 6-foot-6 Glennon was a third-round pick (No. 73) out of North Carolina State. He will become the third rookie quarterback to start this season, joining Buffalo's EJ Manuel and Geno Smith of the New York Jets.
