On April 26, 2013, Glennon was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the third round (73rd overall pick) of the 2013 NFL Draft. He was the third quarterback taken in the draft behind E. J. Manuel (16th pick) and Geno Smith (39th pick). On June 12, 2013, Glennon signed a four-year contract with the Buccaneers worth $3,104,063, with a $637,500 signing bonus.
On September 25, 2013, the Bucs announced that Glennon would start in Week 4 over Josh Freeman, after the team started the season 0–3. Glennon threw his first career touchdown to wide receiver Mike Williams, but threw a critical late interception to Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and lost 13–10.
Despite Glennon throwing 7 touchdowns to 1 interception and achieving a passer rating over 90 in the next four games, the Buccaneers lost their next four games to drop to 0–8. He earned his first win as an NFL starter the next week against the Miami Dolphins, though he had just 139 passing yards and an interception. He won his next two games as well with a combined passer rating of 142.0 and completing 77% of his passes. He went 1–4 the rest of the season, without reaching a passer rating of 80.
The Buccaneers finished their season with a 4–12 record and 4–9 with Glennon at quarterback. He finished his rookie campaign with an 83.9 passer rating, completing 59.4 percent of his passes (247 of 416) for 2,608 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Glennon was named to the Pro Football Writer's Association's All-Rookie Team for his strong first year performance.
New head coach Lovie Smith quickly announced that newly signed journeyman Josh McCown would be the starting quarterback for the upcoming 2014 season, leaving Glennon's future in Tampa Bay in question. On May 10, Smith stated while McCown would be the starter, Glennon was the Bucs' "quarterback of the future". That same day, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported that the Bucs turned down at least six trade offers for Glennon during the 2014 NFL Draft.
Glennon made his 2014 season debut Week 3 on Thursday Night Football against the Atlanta Falcons. Glennon entered the game near the end of the first half, after McCown suffered a thumb injury. At the time of Glennon's entry into the game, the Buccaneerss already trailed 35–0. Glennon completed 17 of 24 passes for 121 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions. The Bucs lost the game 56–14.
Glennon started the next five games in relief of the injured McCown. In his first game as starter, Glennon recorded his first career 300 yard game and the Bucs first season win, 27–24 over the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, the Bucs lost their next four games (two in overtime), and Smith brought McCown back as starter in Week 10.
The Buccaneers finished the season with a league worst 2–14 record, and 1–4 with Glennon as the quarterback. Glennon finished his second season campaign with an 83.3 passer rating. He completed 57.6 percent of his passes (117 of 203) for 1,417 passing yards, and threw 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions.
Glennon was the backup to Winston in 2016. After Winston suffered a knee injury midway through the fourth quarter of the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons, Glennon entered and completed 10 of 11 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown. Glennon also appeared in the Week 10 game against the Chicago Bears but did not record any statistics in three plays.
On March 9, 2017, Glennon signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Chicago Bears. On September 4, 2017, the Bears named Glennon as their starting quarterback for Week 1 against the Falcons.
On September 10, 2017, in his Bears regular season debut, Glennon finished 26-of-40 for 213 yards and a touchdown in a 23–17 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons at Soldier Field. His first touchdown as a Bear was a 19-yard pass to running back Tarik Cohen. He had 301 yards, but had two interceptions, in a Week 2 29–7 loss to his former team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and 101 yards and a late interception in an overtime win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. In the next game, he threw two interceptions and lost two fumbles in a Week 4 Thursday Night Football loss to the Green Bay Packers. On October 2, seven days before the Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings, it was announced that Glennon had been benched in favor of rookie 2017 first-round pick Mitchell Trubisky. Glennon saw no more playing time in the 2017 season after Trubisky was named the starter. In four games, he finished with 833 passing yards, four touchdowns, and five interceptions. He also had eight turnovers, which led the league at the time of his benching.
Glennon has an older brother and sister, Sean and Katie. Sean was a quarterback for the Virginia Tech Hokies from 2004 to 2008. Glennon completed his academic tenure at NC State with two degrees: a bachelor's degree in Business Management and a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, graduating on December 14, 2012. His GPA in the MALS program, which had an emphasis in leadership and sports management, was in the 3.8 range on a 4.0 scale. The curriculum included classes in financial management of corporations and investments and portfolio management.

The 2013 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season was the franchise's 38th season in the National Football League, and the second under head coach Greg Schiano. It also marked the 19th and final season under the ownership of Malcolm Glazer, who died on May 28, 2014. The Buccaneers finished with a record of 4–12 and failed to improve their 7–9 record from last season, and were eliminated from postseason contention in Week 13. For the first time since 1996, longtime cornerback Ronde Barber was not on the roster, as he retired in May 2013.
Despite having a +10 turnover margin (tied for 3rd best in the NFL), and franchise rookie quarterback records from third round draft pick Mike Glennon, the overall offensive production ranked near the bottom of the league in most categories. The team ranked 32nd (last) in total yards, 32nd (last) in passing yards, 30th in total points scored. The team also had the third-most penalties in the league (121 for 1,136 yards), and ranked 31st in third down conversions. Running back Doug Martin went on injured reserve halfway through the season with a shoulder injury. His replacement, Bobby Rainey had a solid performance, scoring his first career touchdown, and setting a franchise record for longest touchdown run (80 yards). On the defensive side, the offseason news was highlighted by the free agent acquisition of Darrelle Revis, and Lavonte David's stellar numbers.2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season
The 2014 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season was the franchise's 39th season in the National Football League. It was also the first season under head coach Lovie Smith, replacing Greg Schiano, who was fired at the end of the 2013 season. It was also the first season under general manager Jason Licht, following the departure of Mark Dominik, after a disappointing 2013 season.
It also marked the first season under new ownership since 1994, after longtime owner Malcolm Glazer died on May 28, 2014. Glazer's family continues to run the team operations.
The Buccaneers tried to improve their record of 4–12 of last season, but failed after tying their number of losses when they lost to Carolina in Week 15. Following a 2–14 record, the Buccaneers finished last overall in the NFC and tied with the Titans for the worst record of the 2014 season, but was statistically (via a tiebreaker) last overall for the 2014 NFL season, thus earning the right to the first overall pick in the 2015 draft.Bob Williams (quarterback)

The NC State Wolfpack football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the NC State Wolfpack football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Wolfpack represent North Carolina State University in the NCAA's Atlantic Coast Conference.
Although NC State began competing in intercollegiate football in 1892, the school's official record book does not generally lists records from before the 1960s, as records from before this decade are often incomplete and inconsistent.
These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:
Since the 1960s, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002. The Wolfpack have played in 10 bowl games since this decision, giving many recent players an extra game to accumulate statistics.These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.Noah Mullins
