JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars signed quarterback Mike Glennon to their practice squad Monday, adding a veteran under the NFL’s revamped roster rules.
Glennon and defensive lineman Caraun Reid will earn $12,000 a week under a setup altered because of the coronavirus pandemic. Up to six players on each team’s 16-man practice squad can be veterans with any level of experience. The previous rule had been a maximum of four players with some NFL experience, but no more than two years.
Sixth-round draft pick Jake Luton beat out Glennon for Jacksonville’s backup spot, but the Jaguars likely would turn to Glennon early in the season if they needed someone to start in place of second-year pro Gardner Minshew.
Glennon has started 22 of 29 games over seven NFL seasons with the Bears, Oakland, Arizona and Tampa Bay. He has 36 touchdowns passes and 20 interceptions. His last start came in 2017.
Nonveterans signed to Jacksonville’s practice squad include running back Nathan Cottrell, receiver Terry Godwin, cornerback Amari Henderson and punter Brandon Wright.
Others rounding out the bottom of the roster: tight end Ben Ellefson, linebacker LB Nate Evans, tight end Matt Flanagan, linebacker Joe Giles-Harris, receiver Josh Hammond, offensive lineman K.C. McDermott, offensive lineman Austen Pleasants, receiver Trey Quinn and offensive lineman Tre’Vour Wallace-Simms.
Nonveterans on the practice squad earn $8,400 a week. They are not eligible to play in games.
