This shouldn’t come to a surprise to any. But according to ESPN’s Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson, believes the “writing is clearly on the wall” that Mike Glennon won’t be back with the team for the 2018 season.
The Bears have already paid Glennon $16 million, and the plan is for that to be all he gets from them before he’s due a $2.5 million roster bonus later this offseason. For $16 million, Glennon made four starts for Chicago, completing 93-of-140 passes (66.4%) for 833 yards (6.0 YPA) and a 4:5 TD:INT ratio while losing three fumbles. The Bears aren’t going to pay him $15 million to be a backup.
Though, Glennon isn’t done yet. If his time does come to an end this offseason, he’ll likely get an opportunity somewhere as a lot of teams are still trying to fill that quarterback void.
