Mike Glennon was at Bears' party when team drafted Mitchell Trubisky

What's worse than watching your team trade up to draft your future replacement? How about actually being in the building when it happens.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mike Glennon was at Soldier Field for the team's draft party when GM Ryan Pace traded up to the No. 2 pick to select North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky during last week's NFL draft.

Glennon, who signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Bears in March, was all smiles at the draft party but must've been stunned like the rest of Bears fans.

Although the 27-year-old Glennon was not consulted about the pick, Pace reiterated after the first round that Glennon will be the Bears' starting quarterback this upcoming season.

"In regards to Mike Glennon, Mike Glennon is our starting quarterback," Pace said last week. "There is no quarterback competition when Mitch gets here. Glennon is our starting quarterback. We'll focus on Mitch's development and Mike Glennon winning games for the Chicago Bears."

Even if there is no quarterback competition this season, that has to have left a sour taste in Glennon's mouth.
