Get ready Chicago Bears’ fans, it would seem like the Bears have a new quarterback to complain about!

Earlier today on NFL Network's Good Morning Football, NFL “insider” Ian Rapoport said that a deal between Chicago and free agent Mike Glennon is "all but done." Rapoport claims that the contract will be for three years and $45 million dollars, which would place his annual 2017 salary as the 23rd highest paid QB in the NFL.

That forty-five million dollar contract will become clearer, once we find out how much guaranteed money it includes. Both Rapoport and the Chicago Tribune’s Brad Biggs, are reporting that a Glennon signing won’t prevent the Bears from drafting a quarterback high in the draft.

Glennon has only thrown 11 passes in the last two years, but before that he started 18 games from 2013 to 2014. He’s a career 59.4% passer, with 4,100 passing yards, 30 touchdowns, 15 interceptions and a 84.6 passer rating.

The 27 year old Glennon, was the 73rd overall pick (3rd round) in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The next step in the quarterback shuffle for the Bears, would be releasing or trading Jay Cutler once he’s medically cleared.

Quarterback Connor Shaw was re-signed by the Bears last week.

Former Bears’ QB, Brian Hoyer, is drawing interest from the 49ers and the Jets.
