Jaguars Promote Mike Glennon

The Jaguars have promoted Mike Glennon from the practice squad to the active roster, per a club announcement. Glennon, who will serve as the team’s third quarterback behind Gardner Minshew and rookie Jake Luton, will take the place of linebacker Quincy Williams, who has been placed on IR. 

Luton, a sixth-round pick, pulled off a training camp upset over Glennon and Joshua Dobbs. Still, the Jaguars didn’t want to let the 30-year-old get away. After dropping Glennon from the roster, they quickly scooped him up and stashed him on the practice squad. It’s pretty unusual to see a player with Glennon’s experience on the p-squad, but this is an unusual year, to say the least. The Eagles just made a similar move to backstop their QBs by signing 41-year-old Josh McCown to their practice squad for extra insurance under center.

Glennon has attempted just 31 passes over the last two years combined. For his career, he’s logged 22 starts, 36 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions.

In related moves, the Jags released cornerback Tramaine Brock from IR while adding defensive tackle Daniel Ekuale and former Eagles cornerback Sidney Jones to the taxi squad.

    Only the Jags would put a 30 year career backup & one who couldn’t beat out 2 6th picks on (a) first their practice squad, (b) then onto the final roster.

      Unfortunately, as us Bear fans will never forget, he is not a career backup. There was once a time where Mike Glennon was very much a starter, a 15 million dollar a year starter no less.

    This a good move. It just is. Minshew has less than a year of experience, Luton has none, and the offense is largely unproven and without a starting runningback. And as much as the common fan seems to hate Glennon, he played well for the Bucs as a backup and certainly is more experienced than either of the current Jags options. Given the current status of available backups, they could also do worse.

      As much as I hate, and I mean HATE, Mike Glennon as a Bears’ fan, I totally agree. Veteran backup who can start a game) if needed. Nothing wrong with that.
