It appears one of the plans the Arizona Cardinals have for their quarterback other than Kirk Cousins is known.
According to Ian Rapoport, who said it on NFL Network, the Cardinals will target quarterback Mike Glennon once he is released by the Chicago Bears.
Glennon is expected to be released by Chicago this week.
Glennon has long been connected to the Cardinals. They had interest when he came out of college and, if Carson Palmer had retired after 2016, it was reported Glennon would have been the team’s No. 1 target.
The question now is what role would the Cardinals sign him to be.
He signed a three-year, $45 million deal last offseason with the Bears and started only four games. He was benched in favor of rookie Mitchell Trubisky, whom they drafted second overall last year after trading up to get him.
He is a capable starter, though looked bad in 2017. But he would likely be more suited as a backup who is capable of making a spot start.
Chicago has not yet released Glennon, so the Cardinals can do nothing until then.
