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 head coach Kyle Shanahan said he expects Deebo Samuel to return to practice this week but wouldn't commit to the receiver playing next weekend against the Philadelphia Eagles. "I'm optimistic he'll be back next week," Shanahan told reporters on Friday. "He had a real good week. Last week, hitting the rehab hard with all those guys, and just being able to watch him work out here on the side, he looks real good running routes, and he's been able to do it without pain. So I expect to get him back next week. "Whether that means the game on Sunday, I don't know. That's stuff that I don't even think about until I see how he looks on

Fans were awaiting word on the status of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, who appeared to suffer a leg injury before halftime during Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle ended up playing in the second half but was held without a catch after his injury. It sounds like Kittle, at least in his mind, plans to play in Sunday's road game against the New York Jets as the 49ers try to get into the win column. "Good to go," Kittle texted Mike Silver of NFL Network. "On to New York!" That's some positive news, assuming the 49ers medical and coaching staffs feel the same way. Fans probably remember that Kittle suffered

The San Francisco 49ers entered the offseason motivated by February's Super Bowl defeat. Maybe that wasn't enough because the team gained some extra motivation the hard way on Sunday after the Arizona Cardinals pulled off the upset 24-20 win at Levi's Stadium. The loss forces San Francisco to play catchup with the rest of the division. It is the only NFC West squad that suffered a defeat during Week 1. The 49ers are back to work this week and beginning preparations for their two-game road trip to the East Coast, where they will face the New York Jets and New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in back-to-back weekends. The team's focus remains on the opponent
