With Kirk Cousins likely headed to the Vikings, the Cardinals’ quarterback search continues. One option on Arizona’s radar is free agent Mike Glennon, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter).
The Bears informed Glennon of his release earlier this offseason. His release will be made official on Wednesday, which coincides with the official start of free agency.
The Cardinals may be eyeing Glennon as a backup possibility for a more promising QB. It’s also possible that he could be a bridge option for a rookie quarterback, which is a familiar situation for Glennon. Last year, the Bears signed Glennon to a lucrative three-year deal (which was abandoned this offseason) in order to serve as a bridge for rookie Mitch Trubisky. His turn as the Bears’ starting QB lasted all of one month.
As of this writing, the Cardinals do not have any quarterbacks under contract for 2018.
