Jets To Make “Big Push” To Sign Mike Glennon, But Belief Is That He Could End Up With Bears

Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com, citing sources close to the situation, reports that the Jets plan to make a “big push” to sign free agent QB Mike Glennon next week.

  • However, Pauline adds that the “vast majority” of people at the Combine believe Glennon will ultimately end up with the Bears when all is said and done.
  • Rick Stroud also hears that the Bears will be the team that pushes the hardest to sign Glennon.

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the week that the Bears and Jets have emerged as potential landing spots for Glennon.

Before that, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported that the Buccaneers offered to make Glennon the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL, but he’s expected to test the open market next week and should be able to at least secure an opportunity to compete for a starting job this summer.

Glennon, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.104 million rookie contract and stands to make a reasonable base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Glennon appeared in two games for the Buccaneers threw for 75 yards while completing 10 of 11 pass attempts to go along with one touchdown and no interceptions.
