Mike Glennon expected to sign with Cardinals

As of Tuesday evening, it looks like QB depth will not be a problem for the Cards.

The Chicago Bears plan on releasing Mike Glennon one year after signing him to a three-year, $45-million deal that reportedly included as much as $18.5 million in guaranteed money. The team made a decision to turn to young Mitchell Trubisky, whom they selected with the second overall pick in the 2017 National Football League draft, and took over as the starter for the remainder of the year.

After signing with the Bears last March, Glennon was anointed the No. 1 quarterback.

The news came on Wednesday minutes after the Chicago Bears released Glennon.

Glennon started the Bears' first four games of the 2017 season but was replaced by rookie QB Mitch Trubisky.

However, for his career, Glennon has thrown 34 touchdown passes to just 20 interceptions.

Carson Palmer, who had been the Cardinals' starting quarterback since 2013, announced his retirement at the end of last season - and with backups Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert set to become free agents, the Cardinals were looking at the prospect of opening the free-agent signing period with no QBs on their roster.
