Jaguars sign Mike Glennon

Jacksonville has added a veteran quarterback, though not one who’s likely to compete for the starting job.

Mike Glennon has agreed to terms with the Jaguars, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 30-year-old Glennon spent last year with the Raiders, where he played sparingly as a backup to Derek Carr. He spent a year in Arizona before that and a year in Chicago in 2017, where he’s best remembered for fleecing the Bears for $18.5 million for his season of work.

A 2013 third-round pick of the Buccaneers, Glennon spent four years in Tampa Bay before cashing in with that Bears contract in free agency. With the Jaguars, Glennon will compete with Josh Dobbs and sixth-round rookie Jake Luton for a backup job behind Gardner Minshew.

  1. Championship!

    In all seriousness, Minshew had an ok rookie season (adequate), but Glennon is garbage. If Minshew is injured, there goes the Jags season….

  2. Mike Glennon .. Matt Flynn … Chase Daniels … Matt Cavanaugh for the older folks … these guys are my idols. Make millions doing not a damn thing. 🙂

  3. I readily admit I had no idea he is only 30. Seems like he has been around forever.

  4. Jags are throwing in the towel this year for a chance at Lawrence in 2021. If you cant see that then you are naive and are not able to see the signs of a tank job that exist before your eyes.

    Or if that’s what you see – especially from this, months before the first cut, you either do not watch football or are a Washington fan. Guess that means Washington has been tanking for 30 years with the decisions they make.

  6. I’ve always liked Glennon. He’s had crappy support from the Bucs, da Bears and Raiders. Look at what those teams have Winston, Winston who?, Mitch We don’t want your stinjkin 5th yr option and Dereck who Johnnie can’t wait to get rid of.

    ===============================================

    The Jags want to sell out their games, they don’t want to keep covering seats up. The fans want Minshew.

  8. Wow. Ryan Pace puts his faith in Mike Glennon and now, allegedly, in Trubisky. The latter is likely to have the same career path as the former…

    Matt Flynn especially. Had one great game in his career and got PAID.

  10. “Wow. Cam Newton’s head must be exploding. Mike Glennon chosen before him.”

    And that’s exactly why Glennon has a job and Newton doesn’t: One guy blends into the woodwork and has quietly moved between multiple teams, probably gotten the shaft at times but never griped. The other guy got paid $100 million by a team only to instantly go public saying he’d been betrayed when he was finally released after years of injury and disappointing play. I think Cam’s best shot at getting back is as an injury replacement signed during the year because nobody has any confidence he’d quietly accept a backup job.

  11. Jacksonville has added a veteran quarterback, though not one who’s likely to compete for the starting job.

    Starting for the Jags isn’t exactly setting the bar very high. Talking about Glennon being an upgrade in talent for the backup job doesn’t say much about the talent level in Jax. Expect another season with double-digit losses….like every year.

  12. I watched Glennon with the Bucs. He’s not that bad of QB. Basically he’s a pocket passer who can make every throw. Glennon has never been a great threat to run, but he able to move in the pocket, and does run when he has too. Glennon has really never been given a great opportunity. This in all likely won’t be one either. He’s become a journeyman QB moving around the NFL.

    All considering, this is a good signing for the Jags. He is that veteran QB that Marrone said he wanted to sign.

  13. Don’t underestimate Glennon…he’s a servciable QB…yes, you need to have a strong running game & a decent front line & an OC who plays to his strenghs.. I hope he has a Nck Foles cinderella season….

  14. Should have signed with Dallas. The Cowboys need a competent backup for Andy Dalton.

    Sorry but this is a tank job and it is easy to see with the Glennon signing. When you have a qb in Minshew that has one good year under his belt (but a crappy team record in 2019) and not really even for sure if he can repeat it in 2020 you end up signing a guy that in no way will push him for that starting job this year? That is insane if you are truly wanting to ensure you have the best qb for your team. If Minshew had a few years of success or even was a top pick this would not be an issue but you are coming off a crappy year with a coach that is barely holding on to his job this year for the Jags. On top of that the new coach next year will want his own qb especially if Menshew shows any regression next year.

    Sorry but this team is preparing for a tank next year to grab either Fields or Lawrence in 2021. They got some good draft picks this year and still have some nice pcs on offense so whoever the Jags get will have a good team to put around either of them.

  16. smh the jags are just on autopilot if they stumble into getting Trevor Lawrence, great. If not theyre happy shuffling along at 4 to 6 wins a year

  17. Jags are not tanking for Lawrence. They would rather trade the pick for 5 other picks. Shad Con is only interested in the $$$. He’s trying to recoup lost revenue from two lost London games!
