Now official, the Jaguars will be signing veteran quarterback Mike Glennon, an eight-year veteran who will provide much-needed experience to the team’s quarterback room.
I’m hearing that the #Jaguars plan to sign QB Mike Glennon to their roster. Brings seven seasons of NFL experience. Should help in Minshew’s growth. Adding veteran depth has been a goal of theirs.— Demetrius Harvey (@Demetrius82) May 8, 2020
Glennon last suited up for the then-Oakland Raiders in 2019, and began his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a third-round selection in the 2013 NFL draft. Glennon has completed 448 out of 801 of his passes (60.9%) in his career, for 5,163 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions.
While the Jaguars did miss out on signing former Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, Glennon should help the quarterback room that is comprised of second-year, and starting quarterback Garnder Minshew II, Joshua Dobbs, and rookie quarterback Jake Luton.
Glennon, 30, has 22 starts under his belt with 18 of those coming in his first three years with the Buccaneers.
“Mike is entering his eighth season in the NFL and will bring vital experience into our quarterback room and make us a better football team,” said Head Coach Doug Marrone in a statement released by the team. “We want to be as strong as possible at every position, and we expect Mike to come in and work hard, compete every day and help our team win.”
Minshew will likely remain the team’s starting quarterback, however, with Glennon the team will have another mind for Minshew, or any quarterback, to bounce ideas off of as they prepare to play the teams listed on their schedule this year.
The Jaguars will begin their virtual rookie minicamp today, their virtual offseason program began on the 27th of April.
