Kevin Glenn’s career after 18 seasons

After an 18-season career, Kevin Glenn, born on 12 June 1979, retired as a quarterback in the CFL (Canadian Football League). The veteran’s announcement was at the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, where he is a legend. His first sign up was with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as an undrafted free agent in 2001. He has memorable moments that include being the first player to be a member of all the nine teams in the CFL. The success of the teams in the leagues, owe it to the efforts of Glenn, which he now retires from at the age of 40.


Glenn has retired as a decorated player with a current record of being among the top ten passers in the league history. Throughout his brilliant career, he has achieved 294 touchdowns, 52,867 yards throwing, and 207 interceptions. Glenn’s profile listing and achievement table on the CFL website shows that his career ends with a rating of 8.2, which is quite impressive. His transition between teams while on his CFL tour includes Saskatchewan Roughriders, Toronto Argonauts, Winnipeg Bombers (WPG), Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Calgary Stampeders, Ottawa Redblacks, BC Lions, Montreal Alouettes, and Edmonton Eskimos.

There are some remarkable highlights in Glenn’s career. First, he has been signed in and released across nine teams in all his 18 seasons career, with the longest stint at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Secondly, it was after one season at the Lions in February 2105 that he became a free agent, where he returned to the team of his first CFL career – Saskatchewan Roughriders. The former quarterback has had high moments in his career, and also some low ones like an injury that sent him out of the 2007 Grey Cup finals where the Bombers lost.


Glenn’s career has been successful while playing in the CFL and the most notable is while at the Bombers. His effort led the team to the Grey Cup finals, only to lose to the Saskatchewan side while he watched from the sidelines due to an injury.

Many of the teams and fans still want him back in the league, though he’s pointed out that he may play for a club.
