Report: 49ers not interested in QB Mike Glennon

Mar 7, 2017 at 10:55 AM--


According to CSN Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers are not among the teams that are interested in Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon. The 49ers had been reported by the Sacramento Bee as one of the teams that might pursue Glennon should they fail to acquire Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins via a trade.

NFL teams are able to begin negotiations with the agents of soon-to-be free agents. However, contracts cannot be officially signed until Thursday at 1 p.m. Pacific.

The 49ers do not have any quarterbacks under contract for the 2017 season. Colin Kaepernick has officially opted out of the remaining year of his contract with the 49ers and will hit free agency on Thursday. No other 49ers quarterback was signed beyond the 2016 season.

Glennon, who was drafted out of NC State in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, has 18 starts and has played in 21 games over his four-year pro career. He has passed for 4,100 yards, 30 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions during that time.

Glennon's best year was his 2013 rookie season where he passed for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns, and nine interceptions through 13 games.

During that rookie season, Glennon replaced quarterback Josh Freeman after the Buccaneers started 0-3. Glennon went on to lose his first five starts before winning four of his next five. However, he finished out the season losing three straight. Glennon went on to be named to the Pro Football Writer's Association's All-Rookie Team for his 2013 performance.

The next season, Glennon lost his starting job to newly-signed quarterback Josh McCown. Due to an injury to McCown, Glennon went on to start five games for Tampa Bay in 2014 – winning just one.

On Sunday, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports! said that, according to multiple sources, Glennon was expected to earn a contract worth between $14-15 million per season. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch may feel that to be too much for the 49ers to risk on Glennon.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday. Lynch revealed that the team plans to exercise the fifth-year option on offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, keeping him signed through the 2022 season. The move will guarantee the offensive lineman $10.88 million in 2022. San Francisco drafted McGlinchey out of Notre Dame with the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. He earned a 79.7 overall grade and a 91.3 run-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus in 2020, both of which were career-highs. However, the offensive lineman's 58.3 pass-blocking grade was a career-low. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year,"

NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson is a fan of the San Francisco 49ers selecting quarterback Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick. Many people are, considering there were rampant rumors that the team might seemingly reach by selecting Mac Jones. Lance has the potential to be one of the toughest quarterbacks to defend in the coming years, and Robinson feels the young passer will eventually elevate head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense to another level. "Look, first of all, the skill set of Trey Lance takes this Kyle Shanahan offense over the top to a championship level, to heights I don't think Kyle Shanahan has seen," Robinson said on NFL Network (h/t

We really grew to appreciate Aaron throughout the process. His film was very good at
