While most of the focus surrounding quarterbacks this offseason will be on Jimmy Garoppolo, Kirk Cousins and Tony Romo, there’s a decent secondary market for veterans.
This is good news for the vast amount of teams that are potentially looking for new starters under center. Among those teams are the New York Jets and Chicago Bears, both of whom will be moving on from last year’s starters.
According to this report from NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, these two teams have emerged as potential landing spots for soon-to-be Tampa Bay Buccaneers free agent signal caller Mike Glennon.

Glennon, 27, was a third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2013. He ended up starting 18 games in his first two NFL seasons, recording 29 touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions en route to finishing with a 5-13 record. He’s attempted just 11 regular season passes in the two seasons since.
There’s likely going to be a robust market for Glennon’s services in free agency. It just remains to be seen whether said market will include him being viewed as a starter-caliber quarterback.
New York is likely open to looking for a new starter with both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith set to become free agents next week. Meanwhile, Chicago will either trade or release Jay Cutler here soon.
If neither team can land one of the top veterans on the market, Glennon surely becomes a realistic option.
