Bears GM Ryan Pace told reporters at the Combine a few weeks ago that they’ve informed Glennon that they will release him at the start of the 2018 league year in March. Pace explained that there’s a mechanism in his contract that prevents the transaction from being finalized until the new league year.
Glennon, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.104 million rookie contract before signing a three-year, $45 million contract with the Bears that includes 18.5 million guaranteed.
In 2017, Glennon appeared in four games and threw for 833 yards while completing 66.4 percent of his passes to go along with four touchdowns and five interceptions.
