Texans waived QB Matt McGloin.

McGloin made it four days in the Texans' post-Deshaun Watson quarterback room. McGloin is in danger of falling out of the league less than two years after the Raiders tendered him at the second-round level as a restricted free agent.

Texans signed QB Matt McGloin.

The Texans have been scrambling for quarterback help in the absence of Deshaun Watson (ACL). McGloin will be third on Houston's QB depth chart behind starter Tom Savage and backup T.J. Yates.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said the team is "in the process" of signing free agent QB Matt McGloin.

McGloin went to training camp with the Eagles this summer but couldn't land a backup job behind starter Carson Wentz. Assuming this deal comes to fruition, McGloin will serve as Houston's third-string quarterback behind Tom Savage and T.J. Yates. All of this was prompted by Deshaun Watson's torn ACL.

Eagles released QB Matt McGloin.

It's been a hard, fast fall for McGloin since he injured his shoulder in relief of Derek Carr last Week 17. He's gone from getting tendered at the second-round level as a 2016 restricted free agent to out on the street. McGloin should get plenty of workouts, but looked dreadful this summer. It's possible he's not the same since his injury.

ESPN's Adam Caplan expects the Eagles to cut Matt McGloin.

This falls in line with previous reports. McGloin has struggled with turnovers this preseason, throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble. The Eagles are comfortable enough in Nick Foles' (elbow) health to open the year with two quarterbacks. McGloin should resurface as a veteran backup.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski doesn't expect Matt McGloin to make the Eagles.

In his latest 53-man roster projection, Kempski has the Eagles keeping only Nick Foles behind starter Carson Wentz. Per Kempski, McGloin hasn't been very good in camp, with his "accuracy being erratic" and showing no "juice" on his throws. McGloin can be one of the better backups and would likely get another shot elsewhere.

Eagles signed QB Matt McGloin, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year contract.

It's been quite the series of events for McGloin. When Derek Carr broke his leg late last season, McGloin was thrusted into the starting role for the Week 17 finale against Denver. He promptly went on to hurt his shoulder and miss the Wild Card playoff game. McGloin hoped to parlay his short stint as the starter into a multi-year deal and chance to compete for a No. 1 job outside of Oakland, but the injury made that impossible. McGloin will be the No. 3 in Philly behind Carson Wentz and Nick Foles. He may have to compete for the job with a rookie.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports free agent QB Matt McGloin is not expected to re-sign with the Raiders.

Oakland moved up to draft Connor Cook in the fourth round last season undoubtedly in preparation for McGloin's exit. Injury cut McGloin's chance at a starting job short last season, but he is a quality backup who could start in a pinch. He should get some interest. Caplan reports LB Malcolm Smith and TE Mychal Rivera are expected to sign elsewhere as well.

Impending free agent Matt McGloin said he wants to sign "somewhere they'll give me a chance to compete for a starting role."

McGloin didn't show much in his only 2016 start before going down with a shoulder injury. He's had some preseason success but is a 58 percent career passer. The Texans are a potential landing spot for McGloin, who played under coach Bill O'Brien in college. McGloin could end up this year's Chase Daniel.

Matt McGloin (shoulder) is active for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans.

McGloin got limited reps with the second-team all week. Connor Cook will start but McGloin is healthy enough to back him up.

Matt McGloin (left shoulder) is expected to be active for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans.

Connor Cook is going to get the start, but McGloin is "healthy" enough to serve as the emergency backup. Derek Carr (leg), of course, will be inactive.

Matt McGloin (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans.

He put in a limited week of practice. McGloin seems healthy enough to play but obviously coach Jack Del Rio felt the Raiders would be better off with Connor Cook under center. Soon we'll know if he was right.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Matt McGloin (shoulder) could be healthy enough to back up Connor Cook in Saturday's game against the Texans.

McGloin got second-team reps at Wednesday's practice. The Raiders have already confirmed Cook will start this week, but McGloin practicing is a good sign for his status. It sounds like McGloin should be available on an emergency basis.
Wed, Jan 4, 2017 05:25:00 PM

When asked if Matt McGloin (shoulder) would be able to start Saturday's Wild Card game against the Texans, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said, "We'll see how the week goes."

Del Rio said McGloin underwent an MRI and is still feeling sore after leaving Sunday's game early. He also thought McGloin was pressing before his injury. Meanwhile McGloin's replacement, fourth-round rookie Connor Cook, admitted he was unprepared for some of the plays that were called in the loss to Denver. The Raiders are a shell of themselves without Derek Carr and are limping into the postseason. McGloin will be the favorite to start if healthy, but it's still too early to make that determination.
