The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with eighth-year QB Mike Glennon, the club announced today.
“Mike is entering his eighth season in the NFL and will bring vital experience into our quarterback room and make us a better football team,” said Head Coach Doug Marrone. “We want to be as strong as possible at every position, and we expect Mike to come in and work hard, compete every day and help our team win.”
Glennon, 6-7, 225, has played with Oakland (2019), Arizona (2018) and Chicago (2017) after beginning his career in Tampa Bay (2013-16), where he was originally drafted by the Buccaneers in the third round (73rd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.

He was named to ESPN’s and PFWA’s All-Rookie teams after becoming the first rookie in NFL history to throw for at least one TD in each of his first eight career starts and was just the fourth rookie in NFL history to post two games with a passer rating of 137.0 or higher.
The Fairfax County, Va. native played collegiately at North Carolina State, where he saw action in 36 games with 26 starts from 2009-12.
