QB - JAC
Week 12 Outlook
The Jaguars will start QB Mike Glennon in Week 12 against the Browns.
Thus ends the Jake Luton experiment. Gardner Minshew II (thumb) practiced on a limited basis leading up to Week 11 but evidently still isn't ready to return. James Robinson is the only skill player from this offense to be excited about for fantasy purposes. Of course, the Browns D/ST remains a high-end fantasy play as well.
QB Mike Glennon was added to the Jaguars active roster on Tuesday.
Glennon was released by Jacksonville on Saturday, but added back to the roster on Tuesday. He will serve as the backup quarterback to starter Gardner Minshew. The 30-year-old threw for 56 yards and a touchdown over two games for the Raiders in 2019.
Per league sources, veteran free agent QB Mike Glennon has agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Glennon came into the league in 2013 when he was drafted in the third round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was released by the Bucs, and later signed a three-year, $45M deal with the Chicago Bears. That contract turned out to be a major disaster, as Glennon went on to only start four games for the Bears in 2017. He went on to play for the Cardinals in 2018, and most recently the Raiders last season. In his six-year career, he’s only thrown for 5,163 yards, 36 TDs and 20 INTs. He’ll come into Jacksonville as the backup to QB Gardner Minshew II. It’s obvious now that Minshew mania is about to take off in Jacksonville, but the Jaguars are bringing in a capable backup just in case that doesn’t work out.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Mike Glennon has made the Cardinals 53-man roster.
Glennon will serve as insurance to injury prone Sam Bradford and rookie Josh Rosen. He’s obviously not on the fantasy radar.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms with quarterback Mike Glennon on a two-year deal worth $8 million.
We knew this was in the works once the Bears released him, but what does this do to the Cardinals prospects of drafting a quarterback in the first-round? With Sam Bradford guaranteed $15 million and the unnecessary signing of Glennon for two years when there likely wouldn't have been any competition, the Cardinals may wait another year to address the position. We find it hard to believe that Bradford is going to stay upright behind the Cardinals makeshift offensive line, so we may actually see Glennon throwing a football again in 2018.
