Winnipeg and Edmonton are expected to be in the mix to sign recently released former Riders quarterback Kevin Glenn, according to Jeff Hamilton of the Winnipeg Free Press.
With Kevin Glenn now on the market, expect the #Bombers to be in the mix for his services. Finding a bona fide backup near top of wishlist. But might be tough to outbid Edmonton, who hosts the GC this year and will want a Plan B for Reilly.

The 38-year-old was let go after the team traded for Zach Collaros Wednesday. He started 17 games for the Riders last season, throwing for 4,038 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. But he was benched several times late in the season in favour of Canadian youngster Brandon Bridge, who re-signed with the club in December, including in the Riders East Final loss to Toronto, Glenn went 6-of-13 for 87 yards and was picked off three times.
Glenn has played 17 CFL seasons making 208 career starts. He has been a member of eight of the nine CFL teams (only Edmonton is left) suiting up for six of them. Over his career, Glenn has totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.
