The Seattle Seahawks drafted Glowinski in the fourth round with the 134th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft out of West Virginia. In his rookie year, Glowinski played in ten games for the Seahawks, starting one. He played 73 offensive snaps, committing one penalty.
The following season, head coach Pete Carroll named Glowinski the starting left guard. He played and started all 16 games while allowing five sacks and committing seven sacks in 1059 offensive snaps.
In 2017, Carroll named Glowinski the starting right guard. Two games into the season, Oday Aboushi took Glowinski’s spot on the right side. Luke Joeckel was penciled in as the left guard with Ethan Pocic as the main backup, pushing Glowinski further down the depth chart. Aboushi later got injured and instead of re-inserting Glowinski, Pete Carroll elected to ride the hot hand with the rookie Pocic. Glowinski stayed on the bench for the rest of the season and did not start any more games. The Seahawks waived Glowinski on December 16th, 2017.
With two weeks left in the season, the Indianapolis Colts picked up Glowinski off of waivers. Glowinski stayed on the bench for the rest of the season and did not start any more games. In total, Glowinski played 199 offensive snaps while committing one penalty and allowing two sacks.
Glowinski started the 2018 season as a backup but was elevated to starter after Matt Slauson suffered a season-ending injury. Down the stretch, he started nine of the last 11 games at right guard for the Colts. Glowinski committed six penalties in 601 offensive snaps but did not allow a sack.
In January of 2019, the Colts signed Glowinski to a three-year extension worth $18 million. For the next two seasons, he started all 16 games for the Colts at right guard. In both seasons combined, Glowinski committed 13 penalties and allowed five sacks.
In 2021, he played all 16 games as well, starting 14 but split time with Chris Reed at right guard. During that time, Glowinski allowed two sacks and committed two penalties in 844 offensive snaps.
