Eagles sign former Raiders QB Matt McGloin to one-year deal

(Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)

The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms with quarterback Matt McGloin on a one-year contract, the team announced Monday.

McGloin, a Penn State product, spent the past four years with the Oakland Raiders, mainly in a reserve role.

The first two spots on the Eagles’ quarterback depth chart are essentially spoken for, with Nick Foles inked earlier this offseason to back up Carson Wentz. McGloin will have a chance to earn a roster spot during the spring and summer. There are now three quarterbacks on the roster. It’s possible the Eagles will take a signal-caller in the draft, as owner Jeffrey Lurie is a big proponent of investing in the position, although that would likely be in the later rounds. Either way, competition could be added during the coming weeks.

McGloin (6-foot-1, 203 pounds) started seven games in Oakland, six coming in his rookie year. The 27-year-old Scranton, Pennsylvania, native has completed 58 percent of his throws, with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
