The Arizona Cardinals signed quarterback Mike Glennon Friday.

The deal will be for two years and worth $8 million with the upside for more, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The reported news came on Wednesday minutes after the Chicago Bears released Glennon.

With the Cardinals signing Sam Bradford, Glennon would be poised to back up Bradford.

In Chicago, the 28-year-old Glennon played in four games to begin the 2017 season after inking a three-year deal worth $43.5 million last offseason.

He lost his job to the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft, Mitch Trubisky, after completing 66 percent of his passes for 5.95 yards per attempt, four touchdowns and five interceptions.

After being drafted in the third round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Glennon threw for 2,608 yards, 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 13 games as a rookie in 2013. He played in six games the following season, didn’t play in 2015 and then only appeared in two games in 2016.
