Mike Glennon signed as a free agent in Oakland this season, and he will compete with Nathan Peterman to be the backup to Derek Carr. Even if Glennon is No. 2 on the depth chart, he would have minimal Fantasy value in most leagues. Ignore him in all formats on Draft Day.
Glennon was signed by the Raiders on Friday. The Raiders have targeted a 29-year-old veteran with starting experience in Glennon to serve as Derek Carr's backup, though Nathan Peterman also plans to fight for a roster spot throughout the offseason. Glennon completed 15 of 21 passes for 174 yards and a score in two games with the Cardinals last season, but his overall resume as a pro includes 22 career starts as well.
The Cardinals released Glennon on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Signed to a two-year, $8 million contract last offseason, Glennon attempted just 21 passes in two games while serving as Josh Rosen's backup. The 29-year-old shouldn't have too much trouble finding another No. 2 quarterback job.
Glennon replaced Josh Rosen with 5:22 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Rams and completed five of seven passes for 63 yards. Glennon saw fourth-quarter action for the second straight week, following a 10-for-14, 111-yard, one-touchdown effort in Week 15 against the Falcons. The 29-year-old signal-caller hadn't seen action in any other game prior this season, but he's been relatively sharp in relief the last two contests. Given the Cardinals' lack of postseason aspirations, Glennon could well see action again at some point during a Week 17 battle versus the Seahawks.
Coach Steve Wilks called Glennon the Cardinals' backup quarterback Monday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports. Glennon opened the season as the No. 3 behind Sam Bradford and 2018 first-round pick Josh Rosen, but Bradford faltered so much that he lost the starting job in the fourth quarter of Week 3. Wilks is sticking with Rosen as the director of the offense moving forward, leaving Glennon as the direct backup and Bradford a weekly inactive.
Glennon completed eight of 10 passes for 69 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's preseason finale against the Broncos. Glennon wasn't particularly impressive, but he at least showed he still has what it takes to be a serviceable backup quarterback in this league. Unlikely to make the Cardinals' roster with Josh Rosen and Sam Bradford atop the depth chart, Glennon could be among the most attractive trade targets for teams in need of depth at the position, per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
