Glennon, who has thrown just 11 passes since 2014, will receive a deal worth $43.5 million over three years, or $14.5 million per year. In comparison with Brock Osweiler, the now poster-boy of overpaid QBs, Osweiler is getting paid $3.5 million more per year.
Sources also say Chicago will take a quarterback in this year’s draft.
