NFC North: Bears Trade Up To Back Up QB Glennon

Antigo, WI, United States /

The Chicago Bears trade up to get a backup quarterback for their new starter Mike Glennon. The Bears and San Francisco traded their Number two and three overall picks on Thursday night and Chicago got Mitchell Trubisky from North Carolina. Glennon, a former Tampa Bay backup, becomes a starter for the first time as he replaces the departed Jay Cutler and Trubisky says he’s in a “great situation” where he can learn the ropes as quickly as he can. To move up, the Bears gave San Francisco their third and fourth round draft choices this year, and a third rounder next year. Also in the NFC North, Detroit took Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis at Number 21, and Minnesota did not have a first rounder after trading it to Philadelphia, which took defensive end Derek Barnett from Tennessee.
