Seven Raiders players who may not make it to Las Vegas
QB Mike Glennon
Mike Glennon signed a 1-year deal with the Raiders for nearly $2 million and that is likely the last check he’ll receive from the Silver and Black. Glennon was not asked to do much in 2019 as Derek Carr started all 16 games but when the Raiders were getting shellacked against the Packers and Jets he came in and did not look very good, even for a backup QB.
Glennon ran hot and cold in the preseason and it was somewhat of a surprise that he won the job over Nathan Peterman until the latter was placed on injured reserve. The Raiders brought in Deshone Kizer to compete with Glennon for the backup spot and the two swapped places several times but thankfully neither were counted on for any meaningful action.
The Raiders may be looking to go younger at backup QB position with Peterman looking to be the favorite for the number 2 spot unless they choose a young QB early in the draft. Regardless of what they do to round out the position, Mike Glennon is almost a sure thing to be holding a clipboard on another team’s sideline in 2020.
