Mike Glennon: Joins Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glennon is signing a two-year, $8 million contract with the Cardinals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The deal was reported only a few minutes after the Bears officially released Glennon, who produced only 6.0 yards per pass attempt in his four starts last season before Mitchell Trubisky took over. Glennon will provide depth behind Sam Bradford, who is joining Arizona on a much larger contract.

Mike Glennon: Signing with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glennon will sign with the Cardinals, Tiffany Blackmon of NFL Network reports.

The Cardinals quarterback room continues to grow as the team adds the former longtime Buccaneer after agreeing to terms with Sam Bradford earlier in the day. Glennon signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Bears last season but only started four games before Mitchell Trubisky took over under center. It seems safe to assume that Glennon will enter the season as Bradford's backup, with the possibility of the Cardinals drafting a quarterback early still on the table.

Bears' Mike Glennon: Will be released in March
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears general manager Ryan Pace confirmed that Glennon would be released when the new league year opens March 14.

Despite having only attempted 10 passes over the prior two seasons while serving in a backup role in Tampa Bay, Glennon earned a three-year, $45 million contract from Chicago last March with the expectation that he would step in as the team's starting quarterback. It became clear, however, that the Bears only viewed Glennon as a bridge option at the position when the team drafted Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick a month later. Glennon still started the Bears' first four games of the past season, but after losing three fumbles and throwing five interceptions in those contests, former head coach John Fox turned the reins of the offense over to Trubisky for the final 12 contests. With the Bears committed to Trubisky as their starter in 2018, there wasn't any incentive for the team to keep Glennon around at a $12.5 million salary to hold a clipboard. In light of his struggles in his four starts last season, Glennon will likely draw considerably less interest on the open market this spring but should find work somewhere as a backup.

Bears' Mike Glennon: Limited to clipboard duty for 12 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After starting the first four games of 2017, Glennon became Mitchell Trubisky's backup and didn't take a snap in the last 12 games of the year, ending the campaign with 833 yards and four touchdowns to go with five interceptions.

While functioning as the starter, he won one of four starts, but he easily could've had a win against the Falcons after having two dropped passes in the end zone on the final drive as time expired. He'll be one of the better backups in the league, as he'll go into the second of a three-year deal with the Bears in 2018, but even if he makes starts, it's unlikely he'll be anything more than a fantasy starter in leagues that start two quarterbacks.

Bears' Mike Glennon: Loses starting job to Trubisky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mitchell Trubisky will replace Gennon as the starter Week 5 against the Vikings, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Glennon has completed 66.4 percent of his attempts in an ultra-conservative passing attack, but he's averaging only 6.0 yards per attempt and has already thrown five interceptions. While the Bears' lack of receiving talent was part of the problem, Glennon only made matters worse with his poor decision-making and shaky accuracy. Trubisky at least offers some upside thanks to his mobility and arm strength. The Bears won't have much incentive to turn back to Glennon, regardless of how Trubisky performs.
