Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon has been named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for November.

Glennon ended November completing 62 of his 88 pass attempts, throwing for 785 yards, seven touchdowns and just a single interception in his four games.

On Tuesday, Glennon's coach Greg Schiano said that he could well be the Buccaneers' quarterback "for a long time" following his impressive form.

Glennon is just the second Tampa Bay quarterback to ever win the award, following Shaun King in December 1999.

New York Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson was named the league's Defensive Rookie of the Month after making 22 tackles, which included four tackles for loss and a half-sack.

The 2013 first-round pick has made 10 starts for the Jets this season.
