The Jacksonville Jaguars are adding some quarterback depth behind Gardner Minshew . The team is signing veteran Mike Glennon, according to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo.

The Jaguars traded quarterback Nick Foles to the Chicago Bears earlier this offseason and drafted Oregon State’s Jake Luton in the sixth round. Last September, the Jaguars acquired Joshua Dobbs from the Pittsburgh Steelers, so Glennon adds a little more veteran experience to the quarterback room.

Glennon opened his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and claimed a significant starting opportunity. The third round pick took over the starting job in Week 4 of his 2013 rookie season and started 13 games. He was supplanted by Josh McCown in 2014, but returned to the starting lineup when McCown got hurt. The Bucs invested the No. 1 pick in Jameis Winston in 2015 and Glennon sat behind him all of 2015 and most of 2016.

Glennon signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Chicago Bears in 2017 (LOL Bears), only to be benched before Week 5 in favor of rookie Mitchell Trubisky. After his 2018 release, Glennon signed with the Arizona Cardinals. He was released a year later and signed with the then Oakland Raiders. Over the past two seasons, he’s appeared in four games, and completed 21 of 31 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns.
