The Arizona Cardinals have officially signed quarterback Mike Glennon to a two year, $8 million contract with incentives according to Ian Rapoport.

This is likely the cost for the Arizona Cardinals to have a backup quarterback with experience, 20 starts, that will be needed if Sam Bradford, the likely starter if he passes his physical, gets injured.

Glennon is coming off his worst season, statistically, throwing for only four touchdowns compared to five interceptions on the season. He was replaced by second overall pick Mitch Trubisky after going 1-3 in his four starts.

Glennon for his career in 20 starts he’s thrown for 4,933 yards, 34 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.

The problem for Glennon has always been he doesn’t put his team in a position to win games as he has only six wins in his career.

He’s a play from behind type and his career numbers play that out.

The money makes sense, even if it is a little higher than I personally was hoping, but it is what the market showed out for the quarterbacks.

We’ll see how it plays out.
