Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced Wednesday that the team will release the backup quarterback at the start of the league year on March 14.
Glennon started the first four games of the season, completing 66.4 percent of his passes for 833 yards and compiling a 4:7 TD-turnover ratio. Chicago went 1-3 through the first quarter, and Glennon was benched for the rookie, never to see the field again in a Bears uniform.
This move is not shocking in the slightest, as Trubisky flashed potential in his 12 starts. Plus, Glennon's contract had a "2018 out" built into it. Glennon will walk from the Bears with only $18.5 million, which was guaranteed at signing. The release also frees up over $11 million in cap space this season and $14 million next year.
Something tells us Pace & Co. aren't done slashing yet.
