Mike Glennon on the radar of Cardinals

AP

Maybe Mike Glennon has a sister there.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cardinals apparently will have some interest in former Bears quarterback Mike Glennon when he is officially released and he’s officially available tomorrow.

That’s a huge step down from the parenthetical interest they apparently had in guys such as Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum.

But the Cardinals weren’t able to get into a bidding war for Cousins, despite the fact he has a sister in the Phoenix area. And the Broncos moved quickly to get Keenum to agree to a deal.

The Cardinals have a blank slate at quarterback, with Carson Palmer retired and Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert unrestricted free agents.

Glennon might not be much of an upgrade. His signing by the Bears last year was, for lack of a better word, unfortunate. He got a three-year, $45 million deal and started four games before they gave the job to Mitchell Trubisky.

Glennon has a career 6-16 record.

The Cardinals have the 15th overalll pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

  1. I hope all those extra benjamins in Larry Fitzgerald’s bank account were worth it because he traded any chance to win in his great career by re-signing with a loser franchise. Please let Honey Badger just go so he can come win Superbowls in Washington DC. Signed, NFL Fans everywhere.

  2. ut the Cardinals weren’t able to get into a bidding war for Cousins, despite the fact he has a sister in the Phoenix area.

    Amazing how this can be reported when NOTHING is signed yet. Hate this crap.

  3. Although I would love to see Teddy Bridgewater return to the Vikings as the backup, I guess that’s a bit of a pipe dream. Cardinals, you would be crazy not to sign Bridgewater. Maybe bring in both Glennon and Bridgewater to hedge against the injury being a problem.

  4. What’s the story with Drew Stanton? He came in, off the bench, and played really well for a while. I don’t follow the Cards closely but Stanton seemed to come out of nowhere and looked good.

  5. Your blind loyalty to a mediocre player is hilarious.

  6. Just, wow. This guy was seriously born with a golden horseshoe up his rear. If I was that bad at my job, I wouldn’t have one. Incredible.

  7. 60% Completion percentage
    34 tds
    20 ints
    83.2 passer rating

    Those are Glennon’s career stats playing on some terribly putrid teams. He was one very bad dropped pass from being 2-2 as a starter including a win over the Steelers for one of the worst teams in the NFL last year. How did the Bears do after they replaced him last year?

    I’d rather take a low cost flyer on a guy like that than some of the other options out there.

  8. ndnation, I’d love to have Nick Foles, but we Cardinals fans are kinda still shy about talking to you Eagles fans….the last time we did that, we ended up with Kevin Kolb 🙂

  9. The Cardinals have not done a good job with the QB position. While I think Glennon got kinda screwed in Chicago, if he was that good he would have kept the job.

  10. >Glennon has a career 6-16 record

    So that means the going rate for him will be about 3 years at $25 million per with $50+ million guaranteed. Not bad!! /s

  11. Seriously? Mike Glennon? Is the bent trash can from the men’s room already off the market?

    He lost the job because the team was horrible and they had a #2 overall draft pick sitting on the bench. Glennon had absolutely no shot at keeping that job. His fate was sealed before the season started.

    No one is saying he’s Drew Brees, but he also is probably available for about $20m a year less.

  13. Cardinals should do what the Niners did last year. Dump payroll, don’t sign a quality QB this year, target guys you want in the draft, hope to get a little lucky, tank, and have a good base for a rebuild in a year. This isn’t going anywhere in 2018 so you might as well make sure you have the assets to rebuild properly.

  14. Relax everyone. This is just a depth signing. Nick Foles will be the starting QB or someone like Bradford. Give it to Glennon to be absolutely horrible and still keep making cash in the NFL.

    Lol, you had me going until the end when I found out you were talking about the Redskins.

  16. Mitch Trubisky played much worse than Glennon did and people are thinking he could become a franchise QB. Glennon had NO chance last year. Yeah, he was bad but the whole team was bad from head coach down. Not saying Glennon is anyone’s answer at QB but he’s not as bad as he looked on the Bears.

  17. Obvious this is just PR by the Cardinals to try and get the Eagles to lower the asking price for Super Bowl LII MVP Nick Foles….

  18. Dear Howie – make Arizona beg for Nick Foles. BEG!!!! Fleece them. Two 1st. You can do it, Howie. We believe in you. Then Eagles sign McCown as backup, and are set for 2018.

    So is your inability to judge a quarterback beyond looking at number of touchdown passes.

  20. The sheer irony of it all is that if Glennon signs with the Cardinals, he’ll effectively be signing up for the same exact situation he was in Chicago with a #1 draft pick eyeing his job.

    As for the guy asking about Drew Stanton, he tends to overthrow every out route just like Tyrod Taylor. I don’t know why, but he does. It’s better than throwing a pick, but gets frustrating after you’ve seen it the fifth or tenth time in a row. For Stanton, every pass is a line drive. He has no touch.

  21. They might be better off just signing the sister. At least they wouldn’t be flushing outrageous amounts of cash down the crap hole they way they would with Weird Cuz and that clumsy cross between the plough horse and the farmer’s wife, Glennon.

  22. I love all this hype and intrigue the Cards have been building up.
    No doubt they have a fail proof plan for next year.

    They first go with Bradford and bet the desert will do his knee wonders.
    If he Bradford down, they can go with Mike Glennon. He is due for a big
    break out type season.

    If that doesn’t materialize, they have ‘Big Money’ Manziel in reserve
    to come in and save the day. As you can see, they have all their bases
    covered 😉
