The Raiders’ pending acquisition of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub seemingly pushes Matt McGloin to a reserve spot on the depth chart.
And the Raiders are said to be quite comfortable with that.
According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Raiders “like Matt McGloin a lot” as a reserve. However, the club judged prospective QB additions on whether they were better than the 24-year-old McGloin, who threw for 1,547 yards with eight TDs and eight interceptions in seven games (six starts) in 2013.
With Schaub expected to join the Raiders and McGloin reportedly well-liked as a reserve, the matter of Terrelle Pryor’s future with Oakland would seem to be the next unresolved issue at quarterback. Pryor began 2013 as the starter but lost the role to McGloin.
