Cardinals signed QB Mike Glennon, formerly of the Bears, to a two-year, $8 million contract.
Glennon has still yet to officially be released by the Bears, but that will happen Wednesday, and he'll then put pen to paper for Arizona. The Cardinals entered Tuesday with no quarterbacks on the roster and have since added Sam Bradford and Glennon. Bradford is the unquestioned starter, but his significant injury history absolutely gives Glennon a chance to make starts in 2018. Mar 13 - 8:50 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Mike Glennon is on the Cardinals' radar.

Arizona has missed out on the top free agent quarterbacks, but they should not be this low in the barrel yet. Glennon did not look like a starter in four games with the Bears last season. He should be limited to a backup role in 2018.
Mar 13 - 12:24 PM

Bears informed QB Mike Glennon of his release.

We're just going to make the move official, but it won't show up on the league's transaction wire until the league year starts on March 14. Glennon was a colossal, mega-bust signing by GM Ryan Pace a year ago. He started four games before getting yanked for Mitchell Trubisky and never seeing the field again. Glennon will have stolen $18.5 million from the Bears when all is said and done. Glennon will hunt for backup work; returning to Tampa Bay to back up Jameis Winston would be a sensible move on his part.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times expects the Buccaneers to monitor Mike Glennon "closely" this offseason.

It's a near certainty that Glennon will be cut this offseason after losing his starting job to Mitchell Trubisky and the Bucs are looking for a signal-caller to back up Jameis Winston. Glennon began his career in Tampa before joining the Bears on a three-year deal last offseason. The Bucs could also look to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick, who served as Winston's backup in 2017.
Feb 23 - 3:29 PM

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson believes the "writing is clearly on the wall" that Mike Glennon won't be back with the team for the 2018 season.

The Bears have already paid Glennon $16 million, and the plan is for that to be all he gets from them before he's due a $2.5 million roster bonus later this offseason. For $16 million, Glennon made four starts for Chicago, completing 93-of-140 passes (66.4%) for 833 yards (6.0 YPA) and a 4:5 TD:INT ratio while losing three fumbles. The Bears aren't going to pay him $15 million to be a backup.

Bears benched Mike Glennon.

In a move which perhaps should have happened sooner, Mitchell Trubisky will take over as the starter. Barring an injury or catastrophe, the rookie should be expected to keep the job all season. Glennon completed 93-of-140 passes for 833 yards, four touchdowns, five interceptions, and three lost fumbles in four games.

Speaking after Thursday's loss, Bears coach John Fox left the door open to a quarterback change.

"We need to make a lot of changes," Fox said. "We will evaluate everything." Fox is "evaluating everything" a few games too late. The Bears should have already made the switch from Mike Glennon to No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky. Glennon has shown exactly nothing, committing eight turnovers in four starts. The Bears' offense has been completely unwatchable, even as the team beat Pittsburgh and almost upset Atlanta. The Bears invested a ton of draft capital in 23-year-old Trubisky. It's time to see what he's got.

Mike Glennon completed 21-of-33 passes for 216 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Bears' 35-14, Week 4 loss to the Packers, also losing two fumbles.

Glennon was inexcusably bad, air mailing both his picks and holding the ball far too long on his first lost fumble, a miscue that set the Packers up at the Bears' three-yard line eight seconds after taking a 7-0 lead at the 9:49 mark of the first quarter. The game was then essentially over. Glennon's second lost fumble was a premature snap that rocketed off his midsection. CBS analyst Tony Romo seemed to believe it was Glennon's fault. With nothing resembling an internal clock, Glennon has now committed eight turnovers in four games as Bears starter. It's true that he's received almost no help from his pass catchers, but it's painfully obvious Glennon isn't the answer under center. It's time for the Bears to take a look at No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky. The team has 10 days to get ready for next week's home game against the Vikings.

Mike Glennon completed 15-of-22 passes for 101 yards with one touchdown and one interception and rushed three times for a gain of four yards Sunday in the Bears’ Week 3 win over the Steelers.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 17 yards. The Bears did their best to hide Glennon, rarely asking him to throw on a day where Chicago rushed for 220 yards on 38 carries. When Glennon did throw it, it was usually a quick hit to one of the Bears’ running backs or tight ends. His longest completion went for all of 17 yards. Glennon’s lone touchdown came on a play-action pass to a wide-open Adam Shaheen late in the first half. He was later intercepted by J.J. Wilcox on a pass intended for tight end Zach Miller. Glennon did just enough to keep his job for another week, though Mitchell Trubisky will be waiting at the ready if he slips up Thursday against the Packers.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears have yet to have any discussions about replacing Mike Glennon with first-round rookie Mitchell Trubisky.

The Bears have consistently said they plan to start Glennon all season, so it is not a surprise they remain committed even after a dreadful start Week 2 against the Bucs. That said, the leash has to be shorter now than it was before last week's game, and rumblings for Trubisky will only grow louder if Glennon struggles again this week. The safe money is on the rookie making starts this year.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 10:26:00 AM

Bears coach John Fox said he is sticking with Mike Glennon as his starting quarterback.

"I don't think anybody ... without even seeing the tape yet that you can pin that on the quarterback," Fox said following the team's 29-7 loss in Tampa Bay. "Everybody had their hand in that." It is true the Bears struggled across the board on Sunday, but Glennon's three first-half turnovers including a pick-six all but put the game on ice. It is just a matter of time until we see Mitchell Trubisky.

Mike Glennon completed 31-of-45 passes for 301 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Bears' 29-7, Week 2 loss to the Bucs.

Glennon's counting stats look fine, but this game was over well before halftime. The Bucs took a 26-0 lead into the break, thanks in no small part to three Glennon turnovers. He tossed a pair of awful interceptions, one of which was housed for a pick six, and lost a fumble. Both passes were flat bad decisions. Glennon got blown to smithereens on his fumble. Glennon's non-existent receiver corps committed a host of awful drops, but most came well after the game had been decided. The Mitch Trubisky countdown clock has been started in earnest. Glennon will be in danger of getting benched against the Steelers' tenacious defense in Week 3.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 04:13:00 PM

Mike Glennon completed 26-of-40 passes for 213 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Falcons.

Glennon is little more than a high-end backup-caliber quarterback, but he deserved a better fate in this one. The Bears committed multiple red-zone/end-zone drops on their final possession with a real chance to pull the upset, only to lose 23-17. Their final play was a sack of Glennon; he wound up taking four of them today. Glennon will remain a low-end QB2 play in fantasy leagues ahead of a Week 2 date with the Buccaneers.

Mike Glennon believes game preparation led to his improved performance during the third preseason game.

Teams traditionally do not prepare specifically for the first two preseason games, but they treat the third as something of a "dress rehearsal" for the regular season. "Something I like to hang my hat on is preparing during the week as much as I can," Glennon said. "Having the full week (for preparation) all the way through, that does fit my strengths." Coach John Fox did not say it explicitly, but he all but named Glennon the starter for Week 1 after the game.

Mike Glennon completed 11-of-18 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Bears’ third preseason game.

He was sacked once for a loss of nine yards. Glennon was money on the Bears’ opening possession, going 7-of-9 for 84 yards and capping the drive with a one-yard touchdown strike to Dion Sims. He wasn’t as impressive the rest of the half and finished his outing on a sour note by underthrowing Deonte Thompson on a pass that would have set up a first-and-goal. Glennon probably did enough to hold off second overall pick Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job, but his fantasy value (not that he had much anyway) takes a major hit with Cameron Meredith out for the season.
