Report: 49ers not interested in Mike Glennon

By Rachel Wold
We could have very well just witnessed Glennon’s coming out party.

Impending free agent Mike Glennon would like to actually start in 2017. He does not appear to be interested in being the highest-paid backup quarterback in the league, something the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reportedly offered to Glennon.

Speaking of not being interested, the San Francisco 49ers are a team that Glennon can scratch off his list of potential suitors.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the 49ers will take a pass on Glennon. Earlier, they were considered a team that may have been interested.

As it stands, the 49ers have no quarterbacks on their roster that are not headed to free agency. But with plenty of options to work with once free agency kicks off, the team can stand to be selective when it comes to a new franchise signal caller, and it is content to wait until 2018 to find a long-term answer.

Glennon does not have a whole lot of experience under his belt with which to grade him. During his four-year career with the Buccaneers, he played in 18 games, completing 59.4 percent of his passes with 30 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

It is hard to imagine that he will attract a whole lot interest as a potential starter for a club in need in 2017. San Francisco could be setting the tone here, though it’s been reported the Bears are hot on his trail.
