Radio bloviators are still perpetuating the myth that Tom O'Brien told Russell Wilson to take a hike in favor of Mike Glennon.
First, that's not what happened.
Second, here are a bunch of college seasons. Without going for Wikipedia or something similar, can you tell which seasons were Glennon and which were Wilson?

He keeps his job by finding another team willing to take Osweiler.

Did you see Brady's wife said that he had a concussion last season.  Thing is, it was never listed on the injury report.
