Reports came out Tuesday that the Jets didn’t have interest in Mike Glennon. Brian Costello makes a clarification.
There was a report from CSN Chicago on Tuesday that the Jets had dropped out of the bidding for Glennon, but a source said that was not true yet. They are still monitoring the situation.
It would be understandable if the Jets did drop out if reports of Glennon’s price tag are correct. Reports have Glennon making in the $14 million-$15 million a year range, a huge number for a quarterback who has not started in three years and has just 18 career starts.
The way I read this is the Jets are out at the current reported price of $14-15 million. In the event the price goes down, they could jump back in.
If I was running the Jets, that is the approach I would take myself. I think Glennon has some decent potential. There certainly aren’t many options with any sort of potential. I just can’t see committing that kind of money for Glennon’s potential. If the price gets lower, making a play for Glennon has some sense.
I’m not sure the price will go down, though. Crazy money gets thrown around in free agency.
