  Packers | Green Bay works out a few players    Mon Dec 18, 05:31 PM

  Texans | Houston signs Josh Johnson    Tue Nov 7, 04:03 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Johnson (Giants) was signed by the Houston Texans Tuesday, Nov. 7, according to a source. QB Matt McGloin was released in a corresponding move.

Footballguys view: McGloin looked good in college at Penn State under Texans coach Bill O'Brien, but he's not been a fit in the pro game...with or without O'Brien. Johnson has bounced around to several teams during his pro career, but he's an athletic passer with some regular season experience.

  Colts | Indy works out four quarterbacks    Tue Oct 31, 12:18 PM

Free-agent QBs Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin, Josh Johnson and Connor Shaw worked out for the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Footballguys view: It's not a good sign for Andrew Luck's recovery if the team is looking at free agent QBs. Luck has already been declared out for Week 9 and there continues to be a growing possibility that we don't see him at all in 2017.

  Eagles | Matt McGloin joins Eagles    Mon Apr 10, 11:40 AM

Free-agent QB Matt McGloin (Raiders) agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Monday, April 10. Terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's an interesting move for the Eagles considering they already have Nick Foles as a veteran backup behind Carson Wentz. McGloin did good things under Bill O'Brien at Penn State, and we're a bit surprised the Texans head coach didn't make a move to add him via free agency.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin wants chance to start    Mon Jan 9, 07:43 PM

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent QB Matt McGloin said he will look to sign with a team that will allow him to compete for the starting quarterback job.

Footballguys view: Don't be surprised to see the Houston Texans show interest. When Bill O'Brien was the head coach of Penn State, McGloin was his quarterback and looked good. In a quarterback-desperate league, there's a chance for McGloin to compete somewhere.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin may be backup    Thu Jan 5, 12:27 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) may be able to serve as the backup quarterback in the Wild Card playoff game if he continues to practice this week.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are going to have to get this done on the ground. Neither McGloin or starter Connor Cook have the experience or ability to win this game with their arm and the Texans pass defense is fierce. Unfortunately, they are pretty good on run defense as well. On the plus side, the Raiders face Brock Osweiler. So there is hope.

  Raiders | Connor Cook prepping to start    Tue Jan 3, 10:11 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook is being groomed to start the wild-card playoff game against the Houston Texans with QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) expected to be out, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good luck with that. Cook came in against the Broncos in Week 17, had one good throw and spent the rest of the time looking like a rookie. Against the Texans, it would be shocking to see Cook play at a high level.

  Raiders | Oakland starter unclear at this point    Mon Jan 2, 07:46 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) underwent an MRI and is sore, but head coach Jack Del Rio is unsure who will start between McGloin and QB Connor Cook in the wild-car round of the playoffs. 'Between Connor and Matt, we'll see who can get the most reps and who we feel the most comfortable putting in the game,' Del Rio said.

Footballguys view: McGloin was banged up against the Broncos and Cook had to take over in Week 17. A fourth-round pick from Michigan State, Cook made at least one good throw but too often he looked short, threw and interception and wasn't as accurate as he needed to be. If Cook starts in the playoffs, he would be the first QB in NFL history to earn his first career start in the postseason.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin exits with injury    Sun Jan 1, 06:20 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) left the Week 17 game against the Denver Broncos due to a shoulder injury. He was taken to the locker room and is questionable to return.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are watching a day that began with them in the running for the #1 seed turn into a day that will send them on the road possibly with a rookie third-string quarterback starting their first playoff game in almost a decade. The good news is that the opponent is also reluctantly starting a poor quarterback and the Raiders could still be favored on the strength of their running game and defensive star Khalil Mack.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin will start Week 17    Mon Dec 26, 07:30 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin will start in Week 17, while QB Connor Cook will serve as the backup.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here with Derek Carr likely done for the year. McGloin was successful in college at Penn State, and he might be one of the best backup QBs in the league. We'll see what he can do against the Broncos fierce pass defense in Week 17.

  Raiders | Connor Cook impressing    Sun May 15, 01:53 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook will vie for the backup position with QB Matt McGloin. Cook impressed head coach Jack Del Rio at rookie minicamp. 'I think he's been outstanding,' Del Rio said. 'Obviously he is intelligent. He asks good questions. He's got arm talent. It's a matter of getting familiar [with] what we do and how we do it.'

Footballguys view: Let's pump the brakes here. Cook fell to the fourth round for a reason--mainly accuracy problems and off-field concerns. At Michigan State, Cook never had 60 percent completions and even on passes from 1-10 yards he was the third-worst QB (in completion percentage) in this draft class. Dynasty owners are hording QBs, so Cook has been picked up in most deep dynasty leagues.

  Raiders | Matt McGloin gets second-round tender    Fri Mar 4, 11:37 AM

Oakland Raiders restricted free-agent QB Matt McGloin received a second-round tender, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That's a bit high for an undrafted free agent, but this is a QB desperate league and the Raiders want to keep McGloin around. With that price tag in place, even a team like Houston (where McGloin's college coach Bill O'Brien is) should stay away. McGloin gives the Raiders a valuable backup to Derek Carr.

  Raiders | Derek Carr not expected to play in Week 2    Mon Sep 14, 04:22 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (thumb) is not expected to play in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources. Carr was replaced by QB Matt McGloin after injuring his hand in Week 1. Carr completed seven of 12 passes for 61 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals before being hurt.

Footballguys view: If Matt McGloin is the team's starter it will dampen the expectations for guys like WRs Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. It will also put a dent in the value of RB Latavius Murray as defenses will stack the line to stuff the run.

  Raiders | Derek Carr unable to return    Sun Sep 13, 07:35 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (hand) left the Week 1 game against the Cincinnati Bengals in the second quarter due to a hand injury. The severity of his injury is unknown. QB Matt McGloin checked into the game and finished.

Footballguys view: Carr wasn't all that sharp before going out. Next week the Raiders get the Ravens defense without Terrell Suggs. We might not know who is starting for them at quarterback until game time.

  Raiders | Chances of a Matt McGloin trade?    Sat Jun 27, 04:49 PM

Bill Williamson, from ESPN.com, speculates that QB Matt McGloin could be traded later this year. If the Raiders are happy with Christian Ponder as the primary backup behind Derek Carr, then perhaps McGloin could be on the trade block.

Footballguys view: If McGloin is put on the trade block, then we'd expect the Houston Texans to show interest. McGloin was Bill O'Brien's quarterback when the two were at Penn State. The Texans have arguably the worst quarterback situation in the league, and McGloin could be seen as an upgrade.

Footballguys view: Moore is one of the Raiders better pass rushers and all-around players, so Jamaal Charles and Alex Smith should have an easier time of it today.

Footballguys view: Murray was not able to clear the concussion protocol after suffering one during his breakout game last Thursday. He might be back for the all-bay area game against the 49ers next week. Marcel Reece, Darren McFadden, and Maurice Jones-Drew will split the backfield workload.
