by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday.

Matt McGloin: Cut loose by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans released McGloin on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

McGloin's prior relationship with head coach Bill O'Brien, who previously coached the quarterback at Penn State, wasn't enough to keep the 27-year-old around for more than a week. The Texans signed veteran quarterback Josh Johnson to take McGloin's spot on the roster and act as the team's third-string option at the position.

Texans' Matt McGloin: Third stringer in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin, who signed with the Texans on Friday, will initially slot in as the No. 3 quarterback for Houston, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans signed both McGloin and T.J. Yates to address their depth at quarterback in the aftermath of Deshaun Watson's (knee) season-ending ACL tear. Tom Savage will get the first crack at starting duties, with Yates stepping in as the top backup. As a result, McGloin is expected to be inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Matt McGloin: Signing with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans will sign McGloin to a contract Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

McGloin played for Texans head coach Bill O'Brien at Penn State, so he'll presumably be able to get up to speed with the Houston offense in short order. He's on track to back up Tom Savage on Sunday in the wake of the stunning news Thursday that starting quarterback Deshaun Watson (knee) tore his ACL during Wednesday's practice.

Matt McGloin: Released by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Matt McGloin: Gains experience in offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin completed 28 of 42 passes for 205 yards and an interception in Thursday's preseason game versus the Packers.

McGloin entered the game after Carson Wentz led Philadelphia to a touchdown on its opening drive. Despite playing most of the contest, McGloin's 4.9 yards per attempt left much to be desired. With 28 completions, however, the veteran offseason addition definitely gained valuable experience within the Eagles offense.

Eagles' Matt McGloin: Reaches terms with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Eagles on Monday.

McGloin returns to his home state after spending his first four seasons with the Raiders, for whom he started seven of his 13 games played. Although the 27-year-old has featured in just six contests since his rookie campaign, McGloin offers the Eagles an experienced third option behind starting quarterback Carson Wentz and backup Nick Foles, cementing their depth at the position ahead of offseason activities.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Doesn't appear Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Will back up Cook on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 off their practice squad.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Expected to be active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin (shoulder) is expected to be active and back up rookie quarterback Connor Cook in Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

McGloin was able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week and still carries a questionable designation into the contest. The team signed Garret Gilbert to the practice squad earlier in the week in case McGloin could not go, but given his familiarity with the playbook, even a semi-hobbled McGloin offers a better option for the backup role.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Texans.

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.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Limited at practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders listed McGloin (left shoulder) as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

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.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Not expected to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin (shoulder) is not expected to be ready for Saturday's playoff opener against the Texans, Ian Rapoport of reports.

McGloin will still have a few days to improve his health prior to Saturday's game, but the early indication is that the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 17 will prevent him from suiting up this week. If that is indeed the case, Connor Cook would get the start under center with Derek Carr out with a broken leg.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Dealing with 'sore' shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin has undergone an MRI on his shoulder, which is just "sore," head coach Jack Del Rio told Scott Bair of CSN California reports.

McGloin was knocked out of Sunday's loss at Denver after he was driven hard into the ground, bringing fellow quarterback Connor Cook to the fore. While the former was 6-for-11 passing for 21 yards, Cook actually directed the offense ably, completing 14 of 21 passes for one touchdown and one interception. According to Jimmy Durkin of the Bay Area News Group, Del Rio wouldn't speculate which QB may be under center Saturday in Houston, only stating, "We'll see." In reality, McGloin's ability to practice Wednesday may be the best indicator.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Exits game with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin was replaced by Connor Cook in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos after suffering a shoulder injury.

Cook entered the game with the Raiders down by a 17-0 score and the status of McGloin will now be worth tracking closely, with the team's usual starting QB Derek Carr already out indefinitely with a leg injury.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Set to lead Raiders offense Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin will start at quarterback Sunday against the Broncos as the Raiders look to clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, Eddie Paskal of the team's official site reports.

With usual starting quarterback Derek Carr sidelined for the next six-to-eight weeks as he recovers from a broken leg, McGloin will be in charge of leading Oakland in their quest for an AFC West title in Week 17 with a win over the Broncos. If the Raiders come away with a victory and New England loses, Oakland will also secure home-field advantage until the Super Bowl if they're able to survive and advance. Connor Cook will serve as McGloin's backup, while Amari Cooper (shoulder) and Michael Crabtree (ankle) are a bit banged up, but expected to play.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Next man up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin completed two of three pass attempts for 29 yards Saturday against the Colts.

Starting quarterback Derek Carr suffered a broken leg Saturday and is in store to miss a period of time. Consequently, McGloin is slated to roll with the first-string unit for the time being. He unfortunately gets a tough draw in his first start of the season next week against the Broncos' top-ranked pass defense that has allowed just 183 yards through the air per game in 2016. Look for the Raiders to enter this matchup with a run-heavy mindset because Denver has only been middle of the pack against tailbacks this season, giving up an 18th-ranked 4.2 yards per carry.

Raiders' Matt McGloin: Two touchdowns Friday versus Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGloin completed 5 of his 11 passing attempts for 41 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Friday's preseason win over the Cardinals.

Although McGloin averaged just 3.7 yards per attempt, he led a pair of touchdown-scoring drives that finished with a 19-yard strike to Clive Walford and a short score to Andre Holmes, both in the first quarter. McGloin will have to duke it out with fourth-round pick Connor Cook for the top backup job heading into the regular season, but Friday's performance certainly didn't hurt his standing in the competition.
