Eskimos sign quarterback Kevin Glenn

Kevin Glenn’s trek through the CFL is now complete.

The veteran quarterback signed a one-year deal with the Edmonton Eskimos on Monday. Prior to the move, the Eskimos were the lone team not to hold Glenn’s rights over his 17-year CFL career. He has spent time with the Bombers, Ticats, Stampeders, Lions, Riders and Alouettes – the Argos and Redblacks have both held his rights but he never appeared in a game for either team.

Glenn will serve as the backup to franchise pivot Mike Reilly. One day after trading for Zach Collaros, Saskatchewan released Glenn.

The 38-year-old 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. Over his career, he’s totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.
