Mike Glennon Joins Jaguars’ Practice Squad

Mike Glennon missed the Jaguars’ final roster cut, but he’s found a home on Jacksonville’s practice squad, per a club announcement. The 30-year-old quarterback will be joined by former Washington wide receiver Trey Quinn, plus 14 other players to reach the max. Here’s the full list:

Glennon seemed like a natural choice to backup young starter Gardner Minshew, but he ultimately lost out to sixth-round pick Jake Luton. The veteran has 22 starts to his credit, but he’s been relegated to a backup at this stage of his career. Since entering the league, Glennon has thrown 36 touchdowns with 20 interceptions. Over the last two years, he’s thrown just 31 passes in total.

The Jaguars’ drop to the 53-man limit also included the release of fellow QB Joshua Dobbs, who was quickly scooped up by his old friends in Pittsburgh. Talented veteran cornerback Tramaine Brock was also pulled from the active roster thanks to a season-ending injury.

    Mistake. Glennon should have been the backup. You need that veteran presence.

      The Jags have decided on a reboot and now have the youngest roster in the league. Too late to be worrying about a veteran presence. A guy who lost his job to Nathan Peterman probably isn’t going to provide any leadership anyway.

      Luton had a much better training camp than Glennon and at times looked better than Minshew. He’s a tall guy with a strong arm. Something that Minshew does not have.

    I hope Quinn can find a home as a nifty slot receiver. I’ve always rooted for him as one of the more talented Mr. Irrelevants. Unfortunately, it’ll be difficult to make noise in such a crowded Jacksonville receiving corps
