Raiders Sign Mike Glennon

The Raiders have signed quarterback Mike Glennon, per a club announcement. Terms of the deal are not yet known, but Glennon now appears primed to serve as the backup to starter Derek Carr

There has been a lot of talk about the Raiders targeting a top quarterback in the draft, but they now have a pretty full room with Derek Carr, Glennon, and Nathan Peterman on the depth chart. Now, perhaps, the Raiders will shift their attention to Day 3 QBs.

Glennon, entering his seventh year in the league, was originally a third-round selection of the Bucs in 2013. After signing a lucrative, yet ill-fated, free agent deal with the Bears in 2017, he hooked on with the Cardinals in 2018. For his career, Glennon owns a 6-16 record as a starter and was not a first-stringer for any of his appearances last year. Still, coaches have always had a soft spot for the 29-year-old, in part due to his 6’6″ frame.

So, for now, Glennon is set to be the No. 2 QB in Oakland. Of course, much can change between now and September, and some remain unconvinced that Carr will be the team’s starter in Week 1.

    Good luck with Glennon, he can’t hit a barn wall from 30 yds that’s not even moving more or less a WR on a route

    I can promise you that Glennon and Peterman will not shift their attention to day 3, majority of QBs in the class would be an instant upgrade over Glennon. Don’t even get me started on Peterman he’s not a QB and I’m stunned he’s still in the league.

    I’d trade Carr for Eli, #8 and their 2nd. But would start Peterman. WS or bust.

    Hopefully they never need him to play. When we had him in Chicago he looked more like a statue than a qb.

    Glennon and Peterman will be added to the list of other great Raider QB misfires that include JaMarcus Russell, Marques Tulasosopo, Billy Joe Tobert and Todd Marinovich.

    Why are they automatically saying Carr is the starter? Peterman’s the GOAT!
