Bears' Mike Glennon: Planned starter for Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears are planning to have Glennon serve as their starting quarterback for the entire 2017 season, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The news comes as no surprise, as Bears general manager Ryan Pace stated back in April that there wouldn't be a quarterback competition between Glennon and rookie Mitch Trubisky, despite Chicago trading up to the second overall pick to select the North Carolina product. That investment indicates Trubisky will eventually be handed the keys to the franchise, but it sounds like the franchise intends for 2017 to be a developmental year. Glennon, who signed a three-year contract worth $18.5 million in guarantees this offseason, hasn't been a regular NFL starter since 2014, but his on-the-job experience nonetheless gives him a major advantage over Trubisky. So long as Glennon isn't a major disappointment in training camp, he'll be behind center for Week 1 and should remain the team's top signal calller unless he sustains an injury or is deemed ineffective enough to warrant a demotion.

Bears' Mike Glennon: Won't face immediate competition from Trubisky
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears general manager Ryan Pace said No. 2 overall selection Mitch Trubisky will not push Glennon for the starting job out of the gates, Rich Campbell and Dan Wiederer of The Chicago Tribune report. "Mike Glennon is our starting quarterback," said Pace. "There's no quarterback competition when Mitch gets here. Glennon is our starting quarterback. We'll focus on Mitch's development and Mike Glennon winning games for the Chicago Bears."

While this sentiment perhaps could change if Trubisky impresses during training camp and the preseason, it does make sense that the Bears want him to spend a year waiting in the wings, as he only started 13 games at the University of North Carolina. Chicago also made a significant investment this offseason in Glennon, who signed a three-year, $45 million contract that includes $18.5 million guaranteed. The team seemingly hopes to keep Trubisky on the bench for his entire rookie campaign, but the plan could change in a hurry if Glennon struggles early in the season and it becomes clear the Bears don't have any shot of making the playoffs.

Bears' Mike Glennon: Officially signs with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glennon officially signed with the Bears on Friday.

Glennon will reportedly get a three-year, $45 million contract that includes $18.5 million guaranteed. His deal isn't quite in the neighborhood of the monstrosity Houston handed to Brock Osweiler last offseason, but this still represents a hefty commitment to a player who's attempted just 11 regular-season passes since 2014. Most of Glennon's experience came in his rookie season of 2013, when he completed only 59.4 percent of his passes for a mere 6.3 yards per attempt, albeit with a solid 19:9 TD:INT on a talent-deficient Bucs team. The deal should allow Chicago to move on from Glennon without much issue after one season if things don't work out.

Buccaneers' Mike Glennon: Will sign with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glennon is in line to sign a three-year deal with the Bears on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Glennon's deal with the Bears is slated to be a three-year, $45 million contract that includes $18.5 million guaranteed. That's a hefty price to pay for a QB who has only made eight regular season appearances over the last three seasons, but it's clear that the Bears are committed to moving on from previous starter Jay Cutler. According to Rapoport, Chicago is still expected to draft a quarterback, which underscores the Bears' desire to engineer a complete re-boot at the QB position. Meanwhile, Glennon's fantasy upside in 2017 will be largely tied to his supporting cast, and at this stage who he will be throwing to remains a fluid situation, with top wideout Alshon Jeffery a candidate to sign elsewhere in free agency.

Buccaneers' Mike Glennon: Could be key target for Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Brian Hoyer expected to join the 49ers, the Bears could ramp up their pursuit of Glennon, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Glennon reportedly turned down an offer of approximately $8 million per season to stay put in Tampa Bay, expecting to get a better offer from a team in need of a starter. With Jay Cutler (shoulder) expected to follow Hoyer out the exit door in Chicago, the Bears could provide Glennon's best shot at a starting job and a hefty contract. The Jets have also been mentioned as a potential suitor for the 2013 third-round selection.
