Official: Glennon agrees to terms

Agreed to Terms - Mike Glennon

JACKSONVILLE – The quarterback room got deeper Friday.

Mike Glennon, a veteran quarterback who has played with four NFL teams, on Friday agreed to terms to sign with the Jaguars as a free agent.

"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," Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone said in a statement. "We want to be as strong as possible at every position.

"We expect Mike to come in and work hard, compete every day and help our team win."

Glennon (6-feet-7, 225 pounds), a third-round selection (No. 73 overall) by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2013 NFL Draft, spent 2013-2016 with the Buccaneers before playing with Chicago (2017), Arizona (2018) and Oakland (2019) the past three seasons.

Glennon, who played collegiately at North Carolina State, has completed 488 of 801 passes in seven NFL seasons for 5,163 yards and 36 touchdowns with 20 interceptions. He played in two games for Oakland this past season, completing six passes for 56 yards and a touchdown.

He played extensively early in his career with Tampa Bay, starting 18 games in his first two seasons there. He threw for 4,025 yards and 29 touchdowns in that span -- including 2,608 yards and 19 TDs as a rookie, when he was named to the ESPN and Pro Football Writers Association All-Rookie teams.

Glennon's signing brings the number of quarterbacks on the Jaguars' roster to four: second-year veteran and starter Gardner Minshew II, fourth-year veteran Josh Dobbs and rookie sixth-round selection Jake Luton.
