Bombers reach out to Kevin Glenn following injury to Matt Nichols, get rebuffed

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are looking to add depth at quarterback following a shoulder injury sustained by Matt Nichols.

TSN’s Sara Orlesky has reported that Winnipeg reached out to retired quarterback Kevin Glenn about joining the team, though he chose not to sign with the club.

Glenn hasn’t thrown a pass in a CFL game since 2017 when he was a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The 40-year-old was the back-up in Edmonton last year but did not see the field.

Glenn was Winnipeg’s starting quarterback from 2004 to 2008 and was named the East Division’s Most Outstanding Player in 2007. He had a brief second stint with the team in 2016 when Winnipeg acquired him from Montreal as a depth addition.

It’s clear that the Bombers are looking to add help at quarterback until Nichols returns from injury.
