A crowded house at the pivot position in the nation's capital could see Kevin Glenn on the move.

Sources tell TSN's Farhan Lalji that the Ottawa Redblacks are listening to offers for the quarterback, with a reported initial asking price of a first round pick.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who have the second overall pick in May's CFL draft, are reportedly among the teams interested in his services. But after trading away their last two first round picks in recent deals for Drew Willy and Korey Banks, its believed the Bombers would not be willing to part with another top pick in 2014.

The Redblacks currently have three quarterbacks under contract that started CFL games last season. Ottawa acquired Glenn and Thomas Demarco through the expansion draft in December and then signed veteran quarterback Henry Burris to a three-year contract six days after being released by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The club also has quarterback Matt Faulkner on its roster.

Ottawa is currently scheduled to pay their top two quarterbacks somewhere in the neighbourhood of $600,000 this year, which is above the league average. With the 34-year-old Glenn having a very cap-friendly deal with the Redblacks and the club already paying his roster bonus, he could be attractive to clubs in need of a starting quarterback.

It was widely believed that Glenn, who split time under centre with the Calgary Stampeders in 2013 and finished with 2,710 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions, would be Ottawa's starter. But any question as to who would lead the team into training camp was answered when Ottawa general manager Marcel Desjardins introduced Burris as the "new starting quarterback for the Redblacks."

Glenn, a Detroit native, has played 13 years in the league for the Stampeders, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Blue Bombers and Tiger-Cats. He was a CFL East All-Star in 2007, and is currently 10th on the league's list of all-time leading passers with 36,666 yards.
