Mike Glennon Says He “Feels Cheated On” By Bears

NFL love is fleeting.

NFL love is fleeting.  

Less than two months ago the Chicago Bears appeared all in by signing QB Mike Glennon to a 3-year $45 million deal, with $18.5 million in guaranteed money. Like everyone else in the NFL World, Glennon thought he was the future of the franchise, so it hit him like a ton of bricks when he found out in a local Town Hall viewing of the draft that the Bears had moved mountains and parted seas to draft North Carolina project Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the draft.

According to ESPN, Glennon said he feels cheated on.

Who can blame him? The NFL is a rough business and teams dont get many chances to Draft a franchise QB that they feel fit the bill. Glennon has shown improvement, but hes not going to be great. The Bears havent had a great quarterback since Brooklyn-born Sid Luckman was airing  out about 2,000 passing yards a season in the run-first 40s.

If this new Bears power structure feels like they had a chance to grab a star QB and Trubisky is that shining star, then they couldnt let him get away.

The pick had enough critics that’s for sure, but only time will tell.
