If they can flip him for a pick he is easily worth that and more since the relative cash value of a 2nd round pick is 18 million (Osweiler). The Bears could be trading 2.5 million in dead money in 2018 for a draft pick.

Yup. Or maybe more than one, depending on the other team, and the deal. If Glennon does well, I can see another team, say...the Jets, who seem unable to bring themselves to drafting offensive players in the first round, being interested. They could involve Glennon in the process, too, and he could help guide them as to where he wanted to be traded (provided everything worked out reasonably, of course).

Just one of the reasons what Pace did was so freakin' smart. Heck, if Glennon lights it up, the Bears could even trade Trubisky next year. The Browns love Trubisky, and have a ton of picks. If it looks like Trubisky is a for-sure keeper, but Glennon decides he loves Chicago, they could re-do Glennon's deal, and make him the back-up. With Trubisky still on his rookie deal, the Bears could afford to pay Glennon really well to do that. There's just so much win in this scenario that it's sort of mind-boggling that so many fail to see it.

In terms of national media narratives, let's not forget that the national media couldn't figure out why Marc Trestman was fired. They thought he should have gotten one more season. That's how stupid and out of touch some of these guys are at the national level.

In terms of Glennon, the Glennon/Trubisky situation relates to Cleveland last season. I never understood why signing RGIII precluded the Browns from drafting Wentz. What's wrong with trying to stack the deck a little at the QB position?

Nothing at all. Particularly when that's your biggest problem. I think that whatever sort of analytics equation that Brown and Podesta use spat out some unflattering results for Wentz, so they felt better bypassing him. It sure looks like they're wrong about that, but of course the jury's still out, and there's nothing wrong about building elsewhere on a team that has been so horribly mismanaged for so long...
