Glennon is now on his fourth team in four seasons

Michael Joseph Glennon is an American football quarterback for the Oakland Raiders of the National Football League. He played college football at NC State and was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals

Mike Glennon has found a new landing spot for the fourth time in as many seasons.

Glennon, an unrestricted free-agent quarterback, signed with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, the team announced. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that it is a one-year, $2 million deal.

The 29-year-old veteran signal-caller, who will now back up Raiders starter Derek Carr, plied his trade for the Cardinals a season ago, showing rookie Josh Rosen the ropes and starting two games.

Originally a third-round draft pick in 2013, he played his first three seasons with the Buccaneersand was able to work his way into a lucrative deal with the Bears only to see Chicago draft Mitchell Trubisky. Glennon’s stay in Chi-Town lasted all of one season, in which he started four games in 2017.
