Bears can’t afford to just hand over ‘this year’ to Mike Glennon
The Year of the Glennon is well under way in Chicago, according to new Bears quarterback Mike Glennon.
Glennon, speaking to reporters at the team’s OTA on Tuesday, made it clear he was surprised when the Bears traded up to draft Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2 overall … and that he does not care about it in the short term.
The 2017 season “is my year,” said Glennon, the newcomer who signed a three-year, $45 million deal on the first day of NFL free agency in March.
There’s no doubt Glennon goes into initial offseason practices No. 1 on the depth chart over Trubisky and veteran backup Mark Sanchez. The Bears, however, would be silly not to open up the competition between Glennon and Trubisky.
Other than NFL playing experience, the biggest feather in Glennon’s helmet is the fact that the Bears gave him $18.5 million guaranteed. There’s a sense with such an investment that they can’t afford not to start him.
Lockette said meeting his saviors was a “privilege” and “a Cheap Fan Jerseys blessing.”
“It’s something that I don’t take lightly and I am very indebted for,” Lockette told KXLY. “If someone told you that your life was going to be on the line today and your life is totally in the hands of this guy behind you in traffic, and he saved your life, and you go on to see your kids’ graduation, and you go on to propose to your wife, you go on to live a wonderful life, what would Cheap Bike Jerseys you say to that guy that initially gave all that to you?
“That’s what today was for me.”
