When Mike Glennon signs with Bears, as expected, it will be a three-year, $45 million deal that includes $19 million guaranteed, per sources— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 9, 2017
The Bucs offered to pay Glennon more than $7 million per season and is set to become the league's highest-paid backup in National Football League (NFL). Frankly, it's a testament to his experience in NFL.
His team-first attitude, his work ethic as well as his ability to win games is the cause of his deal. It also shows how much Bucks valued him. Contrast to the decision. It is too much for a backup quarterback, even with a player of his experience.
Mike Glennon threw all of 11 passes in the past two seasons he’s played, and as of 2015 No. 1 overall pick, Jameis Winston has been a durable team player as well as an excellent team's starter. Winston is now the current face of Bucks making Glennon as nothing more than a backup player.
Glennon was once thought to be the future of the franchise as he was a third-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft. The plans backfired as in overall 19 games in the 2013-14 seasons; he never cemented his position in the team. His career stats showed throwing for 4,025 yards, 29 touchdowns, and only 15 interceptions. Moreover, he completed only 58.8 percent of his passes.
And on the other hand, Jameis Winston has thrown for 8,132 yards, 50 touchdowns and had 33 interceptions in his two seasons. Last season, Winston led the Bucs to their first winning season since 2010.

Glennon's signing with Bears indicates that the Bears believe they can compete for the title rather than later, as drafting a young quarterback in NFL would have required a degree of patience. But, it's been some time since he's been a starter in NFL, so there will be an adjustment period. Still, there will be big expectations for Mike Glennon as he seeks to end the team's six-year playoff drought with his presence.#Chicago Bears #American football quarterback
