1. The Jacksonville Jaguars know what they have in Mike Glennon.
This one is the easiest choice. After all, the Jaguars signed Mike Glennon with the intention of backing Gardner Minshew up. Then again, most teams hope they will never have to use the second-best quarterback on their roster, which is kind of silly when we consider that injuries are an inherent part of playing football.
Looking back, the Jaguars had options this past free agency such as Cam Newton and Teddy Bridgewater, and Jamies Winston. All of them have been starters at some point in their careers and former first-round selections. However, this Jacksonville team went with Mike Glennon, a third-round pick in what is one of the worst quarterback classes in recent years, the one from 2013.
Glennon had solid numbers in his rookie year. Then, he completed 247 of 416 passes for 2,608 yards and 19 touchdown passes, and nine interceptions in 13 starts. That was the best year of his career he struggled in his sophomore campaign and never recovered. In fact, the North Carolina St. product has entered the journeyman stage of his career, has already played for five clubs since 2016, and hasn’t done much of note since then.
If Minshew isn’t ready to play in Week 9, the Jaguars could go with Glennon as he’s the most experienced quarterback they have. It may not be the best option but it is certainly the safest one heading into Week 9.
