Carolina Panthers could sign Mike Glennon

Mike Glennon has a connection to the Carolinas as he attended North Carolina State University. As a member of the Wolfpack for four years, he started his career off by backing up current Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson.

By Glennon’s junior year, he was the starter and put up some solid numbers, which were good enough to be drafted in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Glennon backed up Daniel Jones last season and played in six games for the New York Giants. Interestingly enough, his most productive season came in the quarterback’s rookie year when he played in and started 13 games, throwing for 2,608 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

The signal-caller stands tall at about 6-foot-7. Although Glennon isn’t the most mobile quarterback the league has seen, he has shown flashes of being a solid backup in the NFL.

Glennon may consider the Carolina Panthers if the organization reached out to him. If he were added to the roster, it seems doubtful he would win the starting job.

The seasoned campaigner would most likely be a low-risk, cheap signing. However, this move seems unlikely and especially compared to what Cam Newton or Nick Foles might bring to the table.
