Draft Scout Mike Glennon News
09/18/17 - QB Mike Glennon's Bears were thrashed 29-7 on Sunday by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team where he played his first four NFL seasons. Glennon committed three of Chicago's four turnovers, leading to a pair of Tampa Bay touchdowns.
Overall, Glennon was 31 of 45 for 301 yards, numbers that appeared more than respectable. Both Bears head coach John Fox and Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter praised Glennon's persistence in the face of mistakes and several dropped passes.
But that couldn't stop renewed talk of a quarterback controversy in Chicago. After Fox made his opening postgame statement, he was peppered by four consecutive questions about Glennon's status and whether he considered a switch to rookie Mitchell Trubisky, the NFL draft's second overall pick.
Fox reiterated that Glennon is his quarterback.
"We have to get better as a football team," Fox said. "That wasn't the Mike Glennon Bears. That was the Chicago Bears. It was our whole team.
"I haven't looked at all the stats and all the exacts, but there were a lot of people who had their hand in it and we'll leave it at that."
09/10/17 - QB Mike Glennon was serviceable in his Bears' debut and will remain ahead of top draft pick Mitchell Trubisky on the quarterback depth chart for at least another week -- and probably a lot longer than that. Glennon completed his first five passes and finished 26 of 40 for 213 yards and a touchdown. His passer rating was 86.8. However, the Bears' passing game frequently looked tepid as Glennon snapped a slew of safe, dink-and-dunk passes rather than stretching the field. "I thought the guys responded pretty well to him," Bears head coach John Fox said. "It wasn't always smooth. Like all opening games, they aren't oiled up really well. You have a lot of new people. In our case, we had our quarterback's first time in the offense. I think he operated the team very well."
08/24/17 - QB Mike Glennon found it difficult to describe his feelings when it was announced that Mitchell Trubisky will get snaps with the Chicago Bears' first team to start the second half Sunday at Tennessee.
Was it surprising? "I guess you could say yes," Glennon said. "I don't know if it's surprising. I don't even know. They just told me what it was and, 'OK, time to start getting ready.'" After losing the quarterback job in Tampa to draft pick Jameis Winston, Glennon said he at least feels he can turn back to the experience to help this time. "I just have to control what I can control, and that's going out there and playing good football for the Bears," Glennon said. "That's really all that came to my mind. Focus on what I can control and go out and prepare this week to go out and execute."
06/13/17 - QB Mike Glennon was picked off early in Tuesday's scrimmage by linebacker Jerrell Freeman. Overall, the passing game struggled but did work in one touchdown on a catch-and-run by Victor Cruz. Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton also had longer catches, and Kevin White experienced a strong day overall. "I think there's going to be good days and bad days," Glennon said. "There's a lot of moving parts, but overall there's been a lot of growth."
03/10/17 - QB Mike Glennon, formerly the Bucs' backup, agreed to a three-year, $43.5 million free agent deal with the Bears.
According to reports, Glennon drew interest from multiple teams, but the Bears were "by far" the highest bidder.
The 27-year-old started 13 games in 2013 as a rookie out of North Carolina State and had 19 touchdowns, nine interceptions that season. In four seasons with the Buccaneers, Glennon started 18 games.
