The Philadelphia Eagles found another QB to compete this off-season with the addition of QB Matt McGloin.  McGloin will most likely be named the team’s 3rd string QB if he shows promise in camp or the Eagles could simply let him go if they find a UDFA or draft a QB they feel is better suited for the job.

McGloin is coming off his 4th straight season as backup QB for the Oakland Raiders.  In Oakland, McGloin played in 14 career games with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.  He also tallied a 75.3 completion percentage in this stint.

The Penn State Nittany Lion went undrafted and eventually signed with the Raiders.  McGloin is another veteran presence to put near developing phenom Carson Wentz.

The move however is interesting because if the Eagles do decide to keep McGloin they would then have to make him inactive every week.  Most NFL teams in today’s league stick their 3rd string QB on the practice squad because he is a young developmental type.

McGloin would be slotted behind Wentz and returning Eagle Nick Foles on the depth chart for the 2017-2018 season.  If the Eagles do decide to keep all three, the Eagles definitely have the experience at the QB position if Carson Wentz were to get injured.
