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.
Glennon completed nine of 13 pass attempts for 78 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against Seattle.
Glennon controlled an otherwise stagnant Raiders offense for the first half of this contest. The veteran was unable to lead a touchdown drive, but he was able to protect the ball well and complete a high percentage of passes. Fellow backup Nate Peterman has been hot on Glennon's tail this preseason, but the latter is still considered the favorite to win the backup job behind Derek Carr, according to Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Glennon completed 17 of 25 pass attempts for 200 yards, with zero touchdowns and two interceptions during Saturday's 14-3 win against the Rams.
Glennon seemed like a promising quarterback prospect during his rookie campaign out of NC State, posting a 4-9 record as the Buccaneers starter (the team went 4-12 overall), while throwing for 200 passing yards per game with a respectable 19:9 TD:INT ratio. In 14 appearances since, Glennon has seen his TD:INT ratio dwindle to 16:11, while going 2-7 in nine starts for Tampa Bay and Chicago. He's transformed into somewhat of a journeyman after a three-year run in Tampa Bay to begin his career, now playing for his fourth different franchise since 2016. A few more turbulent outings like Saturday night combined with Nathan Peterman continuing to show promise could prove to be factors that ensure he doesn't stick with the Raiders, either.
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 will serve as starting quarterback Josh Rosen's backup in Week 4 instead of Sam Bradford, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Glennon has earned the No. 2 role at quarterback behind the rookie Josh Rosen, who will be starting for the first time in his young career Sunday. Sam Bradford is slated to be inactive while Glennon backs up Rosen.
Glennon is expected to stay with the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
With Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen (thumb) both carrying worrisome medical records, it isn't too surprising to see Arizona keep a third quarterback. The Cardinals signed Glennon to a two-year, $8 million contract during the offseason, ensuring they had a backup plan behind Bradford even if they came up empty in the draft. Things will have gone terribly wrong in the desert if Glennon actually steps on the field this season.
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.
Glennon (forearm) completed eight of 10 passes for 35 yards and no touchdowns in Sunday's 27-3 preseason win over the Cowboys.
Glennon converted 80 percent of his passes, but that number is essentially neutralized by his brutal 3.5 yards per attempt. The 28-year-old will soak up a good amount of preseason action in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Broncos, but is then likely take a back seat to veteran Sam Bradford and rookie Josh Rosen once the regular season commences if he retains a roster spot.
Glennon did not play in Friday's preseason win over the Saints due to a forearm injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
During Glennon's absence Friday, rookie Josh Rosen completed 10 of 16 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown, as the latter saw a majority of the work at quarterback behind starter Sam Bradford. Upon his return from what appears to be a minor issue, Glennon will continue to battle with Rosen for the primary backup role, though Rosen took a major step forward in the team's second preseason game.
Glennon will vie with rookie Josh Rosen to be the backup to starting quarterback Sam Bradford, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Glennon was swapped out for Mitchell Trubisky just four games into his tenure with the Bears and didn't see the field the rest of 2017. The Cardinals nonetheless came calling this offseason, but the presence of fellow free-agent pickup Bradford and 2018 first-rounder Rosen always hindered Glennon's chances of a No. 1 or even No. 2 gig. There's no telling how much job security Glennon has at the moment, but Bradford and Rosen almost assuredly have spots, meaning he may have to ball out in the preseason to lock down employment into the regular season.
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.
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 Glennon will enter the season as Bradford's backup, with the possibility of the Cardinals drafting a quarterback early still on the table.
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.
