Mike Glennon: Active in Week 1

Glennon is active for Week 1 against the Colts, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.

Mike Glennon: Back on active roster

Glennon was promoted to the active roster Tuesday, with linebacker Quincy Williams (abdomen) going on IR in a corresponding move, per NFL.com's Around the NFL Staff.

Analysis: Glennon should serve as Jacksonville's third-string quarterback against the Colts in Week 1, behind Gardner Minshew and rookie Jake Luton. Originally taken in the third round of the 2013 draft by Tampa Bay, Glennon has a 36:20 career TD:INT in 29 games (22 starts).

Mike Glennon: Heads to practice squad

Glennon is set to join Jacksonville's practice squad, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Jaguars released Glennon on Saturday, leaving only rookie sixth-round pick Jake Luton as a rostered backup to Garnder Minshew. Glennon stands to serve as an emergency insurance option for the team.

Mike Glennon: Surprisingly released

Glennon was released Saturday by the Jaguars, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: For the moment, Jacksonville has just rookie Jake Luton backing up Gardner Minshew, but the approach seems incredibly short-sighted especially with the possibility of unplanned absences popping up throughout a season. It wouldn't be surprising to see Glennon return to the Jaguars following a likely busy waiver wire period, but it's possible the veteran signal caller could have more value with another team looking for depth at the most critical of positions.

Mike Glennon: Picked up by Jacksonville

Glennon agreed to terms with the Jaguars on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Jaguars add veteran depth at quarterback behind Gardner Minshew with the Glennon signing. Jacksonville had very little experience on the depth chart behind Minshew with only Joshua Dobbs and rookie project Jake Luton there before this signing. Glennon projects to be the top backup in Jacksonville but won't be in contention for the starting job in all likelihood.

Mike Glennon: Appears in two games

Glennon completed six of 10 passes for 56 yards and one touchdown and fumbled three times -- losing one -- in two games this season.

Analysis: The veteran quarterback saw garbage-time action during blowout losses during Weeks 7 and 12, but he was replaced as the No. 2 quarterback by DeShone Kizer down the stretch. Glennon hasn't started a game since he was with the Bears in 2017, and he'll return to free agency in March in search of another backup job.

Mike Glennon: Drops to No. 3 role

The Raiders bumped Glennon down to the No. 3 quarterback spot Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Glennon recently replaced Derek Carr in Week 12's blowout loss to the Jets, during which he completed 5 of 7 pass attempts for 20 yards. He also accounted for three fumbles in the contest, one of which he lost, which may have directly led to DeShone Kizer now supplanting him as Oakland's top backup.

Mike Glennon: Replaces Carr in blowout loss

Glennon completed four of seven pass attempts for 20 yards and rushed for no gain on two carries in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Jets.

Analysis: Glennon also fumbled three times, losing one to the Jets defense, after replacing starter Derek Carr during garbage time of a blowout defeat. Carr will look to get back on track in what should be a favorable matchup against the Chiefs, moving Glennon back to the bench.

Mike Glennon: Efficient preseason finale

Glennon completed 9 of 13 pass attempts for 78 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against Seattle.

Analysis: Glennon controlled an otherwise stagnant Raiders offense for the first half of this contest. The veteran was unable to lead a touchdown drive, but he was able to protect the ball well and complete a high percentage of passes. Fellow backup Nate Peterman has been hot on Glennon's tail this preseason, but the latter is still considered the favorite to win the backup job behind Derek Carr, according to Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Mike Glennon: Picked off twice by LA secondary

Glennon completed 17 of 25 pass attempts for 200 yards, with zero touchdowns and two interceptions during Saturday's 14-3 win against the Rams.

Analysis: Glennon seemed like a promising quarterback prospect during his rookie campaign out of NC State, posting a 4-9 record as the Buccaneers starter (team went 4-12 overall), but throwing for 200 passing yards per game with a respectable 19:9 TD:INT ratio. In 14 appearances since, Glennon has seen his TD:INT ratio dwindle to 16:11, while going 2-7 in nine starts for Tampa Bay and Chicago. He's transformed into somewhat of a journeyman after a three-year run in Tampa Bay to begin his career, now playing for his fourth different franchise since 2016. A few more outings like Saturday night's, combined with Nathan Petermann continuing to show promise could prove to be factors that ensure he doesn't stick with the Raiders, either.

Mike Glennon: Signed by Oakland

Glennon was signed by the Raiders on Friday.

Analysis: The Raiders have targeted a 29-year-old veteran with starting experience in Glennon to serve as Derek Carr's backup, though Nathan Peterman also plans to fight for a roster spot throughout the offseason. Glennon completed 15 of 21 passes for 174 yards and a score in two games with the Cardinals last season, but his overall resume as a pro includes 22 career starts as well.

Mike Glennon: Cut by Arizona

The Cardinals released Glennon on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Signed to a two-year, $8 million contract last offseason, Glennon attempted just 21 passes in two games while serving as Josh Rosen's backup. The 29-year-old shouldn't have too much trouble finding another No. 2 quarterback job.

Mike Glennon: Sees action for second straight week

Glennon replaced Josh Rosen with 5:22 remaining in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 31-9 loss to the Rams and completed five of seven passes for 63 yards.

Analysis: Glennon saw fourth-quarter action for the second straight week, following a 10-for-14, 111-yard, one-touchdown effort in Week 16. The 29-year-old signal-caller hadn't seen action in any other game prior this season, but he's been relatively sharp in relief the last two games. Given the Cardinals' lack of postseason aspirations, Glennon could well see action again at some point during a Week 17 battle versus the Seahawks.

Mike Glennon: Remains backup QB

Coach Steve Wilks called Glennon the Cardinals' backup quarterback Monday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Glennon opened the season as the No. 3 behind Sam Bradford and 2018 first-round pick Josh Rosen, but Bradford faltered so much that he lost the starting job in the fourth quarter of Week 3. Wilks is sticking with Rosen as the director of the offense moving forward, leaving Glennon as the direct backup and Bradford a weekly inactive.

October 1, 2018 5:22 PM EST

Mike Glennon: Set for No. 2 role

Glennon will serve as starting quarterback Josh Rosen's backup in Week 4 instead of Sam Bradford, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Analysis: Glennon has earned the No. 2 role at quarterback behind the rookie Josh Rosen, who will be starting for the first time in his young career Sunday. Sam Bradford is slated to be inactive while Glennon backs up Rosen.

September 30, 2018 8:58 AM EST

Mike Glennon: Expected to stay in Arizona

Glennon is expected to stay with the Cardinals, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen (thumb) both carrying worrisome medical records, it isn't too surprising to see Arizona keep a third quarterback. The Cardinals signed Glennon to a two-year, $8 million contract during the offseason, ensuring they had a backup plan behind Bradford even if they came up empty in the draft. Things will have gone terribly wrong in the desert if Glennon actually steps on the field this season.

August 31, 2018 9:58 AM EST

Mike Glennon: May be on trade block

Glennon completed eight of 10 passes for 69 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's preseason finale against the Broncos.

Analysis: Glennon wasn't particularly impressive, but he at least showed he still has what it takes to be a serviceable backup quarterback in this league. Unlikely to make the Cardinals' roster with Josh Rosen and Sam Bradford atop the depth chart, Glennon could be among the most attractive trade targets for team's in need of depth at the position, per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

August 30, 2018 9:24 PM EST

Mike Glennon: Works into Sunday's exhibition game

Glennon (forearm) completed eight of 10 passes for 35 yards and zero touchdowns in Sunday's 27-3 preseason win over the Cowboys.

Analysis: Glennon converted 80 percent of his passes, but it's overpowered by a brutal 3.5 yards per attempt. The 28-year-old will soak up a good amount of preseason action in Thursday's finale against the Broncos, but then he'll likely take a backseat to veteran Sam Bradford and rookie Josh Rosen once regular season commences.

August 27, 2018 7:19 AM EST

Mike Glennon: Dealing with injured forearm

Glennon did not play in Friday's preseason win over the Saints due to a forearm injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: During Glennon's absence Friday, rookie Josh Rosen completed 10 of 16 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown as the latter saw a majority of the work at quarterback behind starter Sam Bradford. Upon his return from what appears to be a minor issue, Glennon will continue to battle with Rosen for the primary backup role, though Rosen took a major step forward in the team's second preseason game.
