The Chicago Bears‘ offseason program is set to kick off Tuesday, and their new quarterback is itching to get to work.

Mike Glennon signed with the Bears over a month ago, and introduced himself to his new city Friday as he threw out the first pitch and sang the seventh-inning stretch at the Chicago Cubs game.

Following the matchup, Glennon spoke to reporters and expressed his excitement about joining the club.

“It’s been a lot going on in a month, but it’s exciting stuff,” he told Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune. “It’s what I’ve been working for and now, finally, I get to get it started.”

Glennon isn’t allowed to contact the organization due to the collective bargaining agreement, but said he worked out with a few teammates and began the bonding process.

“There was a handful of guys that we got together, and then we went to a Bulls game,” he said. “It was a good time to meet everybody, start developing some chemistry on and off the field.

“The introductions are over with. I know them all, I know them a little personally, and then just a little bit of chemistry. It’s not a whole lot but at least we got familiar with each other a bit on the field as well.”

Glennon will enter his first camp with the Bears as their starting quarterback. The 27-year-old hasn’t started a game since 2014 as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and has thrown just 11 pass attempts over the past two seasons.
