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. Aug 9 - 8:57 AM

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.
Mar 8 - 10:57 AM

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.
Jan 7 - 3:21 PM

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.
Jan 7 - 9:36 AM

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.
Jan 6 - 4:29 PM

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.
Jan 4 - 5:25 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.
Jan 2 - 6:47 PM

Matt McGloin exited Week 17 against the Broncos with a shoulder injury.

McGloin was driven into the ground by a big hit late in the second quarter. He looked upset on the sidelines before leaving for the locker room before halftime. Rookie Connor Cook is in the game at quarterback. McGloin struggled before leaving, completing just 6-of-11 passes for 21 yards and missing Amari Cooper on what should have been a long touchdown. If he plays the rest of the game, Cook will have an opportunity to stake his claim on the starting job entering the postseason.
Jan 1 - 5:41 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan suggested Matt McGloin has already locked up the Raiders' backup quarterback job.

Caplan said fourth-round rookie Connor Cook is a "distant" third. Cook was expected to push McGloin after the Raiders moved up to grab him, but it was always unlikely the rookie would be able to unseat one of the better backups in the league. Playing under a one-year tender, McGloin is set to hit free agency next spring, where he will be a sleeper to garner Chase Danielian offers.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Matt McGloin will compete with fourth-round pick Connor Cook for the backup quarterback job this season.

Oakland made the puzzling choice of leapfrogging the Cowboys to select Cook with the 100th overall pick. GM Reggie McKenzie is a disciple of former Packers executive Ron Wolf, who was known for developing quarterbacks and turning them into trade assets. Considering he wasn't even drafed, McGloin has fared reasonably well in his three years with Oakland, completing 58.4 percent of his passes for a 76.2 career passer rating. Cook and McGloin will be destined for clipboard duty this season behind franchise quarterback Derek Carr.

Raiders re-signed QB Matt McGloin to a one-year, $2.553 million contract.

McGloin is a relatively experienced backup behind Derek Carr, but the Raiders would be in big trouble if they had to rely on the former undrafted free agent for a multiple-game stretch. McGloin is headed into his age-27 season.
Mon, Apr 18, 2016 01:54:00 PM

Raiders extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent QB Matt McGloin.

McGloin entered the league as an UDFA out of Penn State, so Oakland had to tender him at the second-round level to ensure they'd keep him. McGloin made six starts as a 2013 rookie. He has a career 6.9 YPA average on 262 attempts and an 11:11 TD:INT ratio. McGloin is Derek Carr's No. 2.
Fri, Mar 4, 2016 11:43:00 AM

Replacing Derek Carr (hand), Matt McGloin completed 23-of-31 passes for 142 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Raiders' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Also losing a fumble and absorbing two sacks, McGloin threw a couple of garbage-time TDs to FB Marcel Reece. McGloin is better than given credit for, but the Raiders' offense is probably going to be a struggle for the foreseeable future. The extent of Carr's injury is unknown. The Raiders will host the Terrell Suggs-less Ravens in Week 2.
