Mike Glennon officially has no agent (unofficially does)

With free agency approaching, players like Darrelle Revis and Colin Kaepernick were wise to officially hire agents. Mike Glennon, however, does not yet officially have one.

NFLPA records still show that Glennon is unrepresented. It’s an important point as Tuesday approaches, since at that point teams can negotiate with agents representing free agents — but not with the free agents directly. Although Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal has reported that Glennon split with two firms (Vanguard and Athletes First) and that he will re-sign with Athletes First only, it apparently hasn’t happened yet.

If it’s going to happen, it needs to happen soon. Otherwise, any team that talks to David Dunn or other agents about Glennon as of Tuesday will be tampering.

Not to be confused with the teams that currently and have been talking to agents about free agents in Indianapolis for the past several days, which obviously is tampering but only gets investigated if someone essentially admits to the world that tampering happened.

Someone is clearly talking to someone about Glennon, given the report that the Bears and Jets are interested in Glennon. That’s the kind of information that makes its way to the media from the agents who are trying to get the player paid as much money as possible.

  1. Never heard more hype for a player that has never proven himself in the regular season or had any significant playing time despite being in the NFL now for 5 or 6 seasons. The old saying goes, “the back up qb is always the most popular guy on the roster.”

  2. If the Bills hopefully do release Tyrod Taylor I would love to give him a chance with the Bills as their starting QB going forward. He has been wasted on TB’s roster.

  3. Why shouldn’t teams tamper. Comminsioner Fraudell has already shown that the maximum punishment for tampering is now a $100,000 fine. That was the punishment for the Jets tampering openly and privately with Revis (what a break for the Pats), so why should it be higher for any other team.

    Oh yeah, I forgot. If your team is not situated in the NYC area or Pittsburgh, any punishments handed out by NYFL are going to be different.

    Another whiny Patriot snowflake. Time for a diaper change.

  5. Is there any story that a Patriots fan can’t turn into an opportunity to whine about some perceived injustice thrown their way?

  6. Mike Glennon can play a little bit. If he has a clean pocket to work, he will do great. Glennon is very smart and a leader by example.

    Lovie Smith made a mistake when he didn’t allow Mike Glennon to compete with Josh McCown for the starter job in 2014. We ended up going 2-14 and one of those wins was with Glennon beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

    Mike can play, and he will be at least league average.

  7. Tyrod Taylor. After the Bills release him.
    Also WR Kenny Stills from the Dolphins would be a great pick up for NYJ.
