Mike Glennon is a free agent at the time of publication, and we'll see if he can land a job as a backup quarterback with a new team. He should not be drafted in any Fantasy leagues. He ended 2019 as the No. 3 quarterback for the Raiders behind Derek Carr and DeShone Kizer.
Glennon agreed to terms with the Jaguars on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The Jaguars add veteran depth at quarterback behind Gardner Minshew with the Glennon signing. Jacksonville had very little experience on the depth chart behind Minshew with only Joshua Dobbs and rookie project Jake Luton there before this signing. Glennon projects to be the top backup in Jacksonville but won't be in contention for the starting job in all likelihood.
Glennon completed six of 10 passes for 56 yards and one touchdown and fumbled three times -- losing one -- in two games this season. The veteran quarterback saw garbage-time action during blowout losses in Weeks 7 and 12, but he was replaced on the depth chart as the No. 2 quarterback by DeShone Kizer down the stretch. Glennon hasn't started a game since he was with the Bears in 2017, and he'll return to free agency in March in search of another backup job.
The Raiders bumped Glennon down to the No. 3 quarterback spot Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports. Glennon recently replaced Derek Carr in Week 12's blowout loss to the Jets, during which he completed five of seven pass attempts for 20 yards. He also accounted for three fumbles in the contest, one of which he lost, which may have directly led to DeShone Kizer now supplanting him as Oakland's top backup.
Glennon completed four of seven pass attempts for 20 yards and rushed for no gain on two carries in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Jets. Glennon also fumbled three times, losing one to the Jets defense, after replacing starter Derek Carr during garbage time of a blowout defeat. Carr will look to get back on track in what should be a favorable matchup against the Chiefs, moving Glennon back to the bench.
Glennon completed two of three pass attempts for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-24 loss to the Packers. As Green Bay ran away with a 42-17 lead late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's tilt, Raiders coach Jon Gruden elected to keep starter Derek Carr on the bench while Glennon was thrust into action for the first time this season. The 29-year-old vet rewarded Darren Waller owners with the tight end's second score of the contest just past the two-minute warning, but Carr will be back to lead the offense in Week 8 against Houston.
