The Miami Dolphins have made a quarterback move and signed veteran Mike Glennon to the roster ahead of Sunday’s season finale.
Glennon has been in the league since 2013 and has played for Tampa Bay, Chicago, Arizona, Oakland, Jacksonville, and the New York Giants. His longest stay was in Tampa Bay for three seasons and he has had no other season longer than one year.
Over his eight seasons, he has started 31 games of the 40 he has appeared in with 18 coming during his time with the Buccaneers. He has not played in 2022.
Miami is in desperate need of quarterback help given Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion and Teddy Bridgewater’s broken finger. The signing is a pretty good indication that the Dolphins are not certain if Bridgewater will play on Sunday or if they believe he can play the entire game if he does. Bridgewater did practice in full this week and was not listed as questionable for the game but his hand is a concern.
Skylar Thompson could get his second shot at the Jets. He took over for Bridgewater after the first play of the game earlier in the season but later exited with a hand injury.
Glennon isn’t a glamor signing but the Dolphins needed someone with experience. Miami’s playoff hopes rest on beating the Jets and the Bills beating the Patriots. He will likely serve as the third quarterback.
In his career, Glennon has a 6-25 record. His last victory as a starting QB came in 2017 and he has lost his last 10 games.
The Dolphins are on a five-game losing streak that followed a five-game winning streak. This is the final game of the year unless the Dolphins can figure out how to get back on the winning path. Despite the fact the Jets are eliminated, they are motivated to keep Miami out of the postseason.
The Bills and Patriots will also play at 1:00 on Sunday.
