Here is the deal: The Chicago Bears still need to officially release the gunslinger. When — and if, technically — that happens, NFL reporters are stating that Glennon is headed to Arizona.
When Glennon does go to the Cardinals, he will likely take on the role of backup to Sam Bradford, who just signed a one-year, $20 million deal to become the team’s new starting quarterback. But with Bradford’s extensive injury history, Glennon should like his chances of getting on the field for the Cards.
After spending his first three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Glennon signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Bears last offseason. The deal was expected to make the veteran Chicago’s starting quarterback.
However, he struggled in the four games he got to start last season. The team decided to turn to young Mitchell Trubisky, whom they selected with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, and took over as the starter for the remainder of the year.
Glennon led the Bears to a 1-3 record as the team’s starter and threw for four touchdowns and five interceptions, while also losing three fumbles. He was not particularly good while trotting about the gridiron for the Windy City’s favorite football franchise. With the money Glennon was making, it was inevitable that the Bears would decide to simply cut him loose this offseason.
