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 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.
