Mike Glennon to start for Bears

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace named newly signed quarterback Mike Glennon the team's starter for 2017. “Mike Glennon is our starting quarterback and we’re fired up about that," Pace said Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Glennon, who signed a three-year, $45 million deal with Chicago that includes $18.5 million in guaranteed money, will start for the club in 2017. The former Buccaneers field general posted a 5-13 career win-loss record in 18 games as a starter in Tampa Bay, but Bears brass believes he's shown enough to turn Chicago's franchise around and be their future. Glennon has thrown for 30 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in his career.

Mike Glennon to get a 3-year offer from Chicago

When all is said and done Mike Glennon will have a 3-year order with an average of about $14.5M a year.

Fantasy Impact

It is rumored that Chicago will still draft a QB but it seems very likely that Glennon will get the chance to start for the Bears. Glennon last year only threw for 75 yards and one touchdown. With Winston being the franchise guy Glennon wants that chance to prove himself as a legitimate NFL starter. In fantasy terms Glennon is a dark horse as no one really knows how everything will play out. He's worth a backup flyer in most leagues. Keep him on your radar come draft day.

Mike Glennon expected to land with Chicago

NFL Network's Mike Silver believes Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon "will end up" with the Chicago Bears. Silver adds that he does not believe the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers have a "legitimate interest" in him.

Fantasy Impact

If Silver's report holds true, the Bears are the only team that has a legitimate interest in Glennon. Therefore, Chicago is his likeliest destination. If the Bears indeed sign Glennon, Brian Hoyer will likely move on and not be re-signed. Hoyer is a free agent and is coming off of a 2016 season in which he finished on the injured reserve list with a fractured forearm.

Mike Glennon could land with 49ers

ESPN's Jenna Laine believes the San Francisco 49ers are a "possible destination" for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon. "There's interest there, dating back to last season," Laine said via ESPN Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Although the Bears and Jets are considered the likeliest of destinations for Glennon, with Chicago being the lead, Laine believes the 49ers are in play as well. Since Colin Kaepernick opted out of his contract last week, the 49ers no longer have a signal caller under contract. Kaepernick was the last. With rumors of a possible Kirk Cousins trade to San Francisco picking up traction and then fading just as fast, the quarterback situation in the Bay Area remains up in the air. If Cousins remains in Washington and he does not sign a long-term deal, he will be in line to finally reach the open market next offseason. The 49ers could ultimately take a chance in the aforementioned scenario happening and sign a bridge quarterback, in the likes of Matt Schaub or Brian Hoyer who are both free agents, to get them through 2017.

Mike Glennon could be a fit for Jets, Bears

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the New York Jets and Chicago Bears "have emerged" as "two potential landing spots" for Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Glennon, an impending free agent, will finally get another chance to compete for a starting job. He is poised to test the open market when the free agency signing period begins on March 9 and is expected to move on from Tampa Bay. Per Rapoport, expect the Jets and Bears to heavily pursue Glennon now that the Patriots have reportedly elected not to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason. In his four-year career, Glennon has accumulated a 4,100-30-15 quarterback stat line with an 84.6 passer rating.
