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.

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...

After defending himself against critics for much of last season, McGlinchey eventually admitted that there was room for improvement. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year," McGlinchey said in December. "There's things I did a lot better than last year.
