MMQB's Peter King weighs in on Bears' signing of Mike Glennon

MMQB's Peter King weighs in on Bears' signing of Mike Glennon

The Bears' decision to invest in quarterback Mike Glennon has received mixed reviews, but Monday Morning Quarterback's Peter King seems to like the deal.

In his recap of free agency's first week, King led off his "Signings I Like" subhead with this:

I actually think the Bears did a good deal—relatively—with Mike Glennon, now that the numbers are out. It’s $16 million guaranteed in year one, and then only $2.5 million guaranteed after that in a three-year deal. Glennon has 2017 to prove he’s a good starter, or the Bears will go QB-prospecting again in 2018. And it’s no lock they won’t take a passer high in this draft either.

The financial aspect of the deal essentially comes out to a one-year tryout on his end (only $19 million of the $45 million on the deal is gauranteed), and MMQB's Albert Greer pointed out here that Glennon's per-year salary is actually below-average for starting quarterbacks.

98 receptions, 1,730 yards, 17 TD

Projection:

Third round

Scouting Report:

"Slot-only receiver with the athleticism and separation quickness to win on the NFL level. Benefitted statistically from Western Kentucky's scheme, but that offense benefitted from Taylor's ability to get open and his explosiveness in the open field. High floor with the potential to be an above-average slot receiver in an offense that recognizes his flexibility." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of more than 100 prospects, including a scouting report and video interviews with each player.

Montravius Adams, DL, Auburn

6'4" | 304 lbs.

2016 stats:

43 tackles, 8 TFL, 4 sacks, INT, 2 FR

Projection:

Second-to-third round

Scouting Report:

"Adams disappointed the scouting community with a pedestrian junior season that lacked passion and production. This season, he played with greater consistency of effort and found his way into the backfield far more often. Can be disruptive off the snap but is not the type of player to recover quickly if beaten early in the rep. He is a rotational defensive tackle for gap-attack defenses, but is unlikely to offer much as a pass rusher." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
