McGloin was released by the Chiefs on Sunday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. The Chiefs initially kept three QBs on the 53-man roster but ultimately settled on just Patrick Mahomes and Chad Henne. It will be difficult for McGloin to find work before Week 1.
McGloin signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday. McGloin was briefly on the Texans 53-man roster in November after spending training camp with the Eagles. The 28-year-old projects to slot in as the No. 3 quarterback behind Patrick Mahomes and Chad Henne in 2018.
McGloin was released by the Eagles on Friday, Martin Frank of the Delaware Journal reports. McGloin's underwhelming preseason performance did little to encourage the Eagles to carry three QBs into the regular season. He's immediately eligible to sign elsewhere.
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. He's set to test the market as an unrestricted free agent in 2017.
McGloin (shoulder) will be active Saturday and serve as rookie quarterback Connor Cook's backup, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. As originally expected, McGloin will be available Saturday behind Cook, with the Raiders electing not to activate No. 3 option Garrett Gilbert of their practice squad.
