"Bears To Make 'Major Push" For Free Agent QB Mike Glennon

Chicago Bears Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon against the Chicago Bears at Raymond James Stadium

If the Bears are going to sign Glennon and then draft a quarterback early in the 2017 NFL Draft, they need to be capable of making the same decision that the Seahawks did.

Bidding for Mike Glennon is apparently too rich for the Jets' blood. He started five games the next year but fell out of favor with new coach Lovie Smith, who led the Bears for nine seasons. He had a completion percentage of 59.4, and a quarterback rating of 83.9.

The two spent time together during their tenure in Tampa Bay playing for the Buccaneers during Glennon's rookie season.

The Michigan State product and eight-year National Football League veteran completed 67 percent of his passes last season, throwing for 1,445 yards and six touchdowns with zero interceptions.

Mike Glennon, who has thrown 11 passes in the last two seasons as the Bucs' backup quarterback, could have a very nice week ahead of him.

Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott welcome baby No
He has two older brothers, 9-year-old Liam and 4-year-old Finn , and two older sisters, 8-year-old Stella and 5-year-old Hattie . So how many kids does Tori Spelling have now? Tori wrote. "Please join us in welcoming Beau Dean McDermott ".

The Jets are also interested in Glennon, and the Buccaneer reportedly would like to sign him to a backup-level deal.

His projected annual salary ranges from $7 million to $15 million.

It's unclear if this will impact Glennon's market, which was previously set between $14 and $15 million per year. The Bears may be his preferred destination anyway, but now another team with a possible starting job to offer is out of the mix for Glennon.

Signing Glennon will not preclude the Bears from investing a high-round pick on a quarterback in this year's draft, it just means GM Ryan Pace won't be as desperate to reach for one.
