Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that there are some backup quarterbacks being discussed by teams in need of a backup including Mike Glennon (Cardinals), Tom Savage (Saints), and Josh Dobbs (Steelers).
- Troy Renck says that Glennon has been “loosely connected” to the Broncos if they add a veteran backup.
The comes shortly after the news that the Packers have traded Brett Hundley to the Seahawks for a 2019 draft picks.
Glennon, 28, 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 last year.
The Bears elected to move on from him after just one season and he later signed a two-year $8 million contract with the Cardinals this past March.
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.
Savage, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Texans back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.52 million contract and made a base salary of $690,000 for the 2017 season.
The Saints signed Savage to a one-year, $1.5 million deal back in March.
In 2017, Savage appeared in eight games and completed 56.1 percent of his passes for 1412 yards, five touchdowns and six interceptions. The Texans placed him on injured reserve after he suffered a scary concussion during their loss to the 49ers.
Dobbs, 23, is a former fourth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2017. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.99 million contract and set to make base salaries of $555,000 and $645,000 over the next two years of the agreement.
Dobbs has yet to appear in an NFL game.
