McGloin (shoulder) was active for Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans, but as expected he didn't play a snap with rookie quarterback Connor Cook at the helm.
McGloin finished the 2016 season with eight completions on 15 pass attempts for 50 yards and no interceptions or touchdowns in three games. McGloin's shoulder injury didn't allow for him to get the start at quarterback in the Raiders' brief playoff stint, but he figures to be fine moving forward into the offseason.

McGloin's sore left shoulder caused him to be a limited participant during practice this week, but despite his questionable tag, the Raiders are optimistic he'll be able to suit up Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. That comes as good news, since besides the injured Derek Carr (leg), McGloin is the only quarterback other than Connor Cook on Oakland's current roster. While Cook has already been named the team's starter for Saturday's playoff tilt, having a proper backup in McGloin is certainly something the Raiders will hope to have in place.
McGloin's practice participation Wednesday opens up the possibility that he could serve in a backup capacity this weekend, but in any case, it's already been announced that Connor Cook will make his first career NFL start in Saturday's playoff game against the Texans.
