Veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn has retired from the CFL.

The news first came on The Rod Pedersen Show.

The 40-year-old spent 2018 backing up Mike Reilly with the Edmonton Eskimos but didn’t see any game action.

Glenn started 17 games for the Riders in 2017, throwing for 4,038 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Saskatchewan went 10-8 that year earning a playoff spot as the crossover team and came within one third-and-15 Ricky Ray to James Wilder Jr. conversion of going to the Grey Cup.

Glenn has played 18 CFL seasons making 208 career starts. He has been a member of all nine CFL teams suiting up for seven of them. Over his career, Glenn has totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.

After nearly two decades in the league, Glenn knows the CFL well and would have been a steady starter, valuable backup and mentor for younger quarterbacks learning the nuances of the Canadian game.
