Eagles sign quarterback Matt McGloin

The Eagles have committed their future to quarterback Carson Wentz, but they’re rebuilding the rest of their depth chart at the position this offseason.

The team announced they had signed Matt McGloin to a one-year deal.

The former Raiders backup lost his chance to start a playoff game because of a shoulder injury, and the Raiders are apparently fine casting their lot with Connor Cook as Derek Carr’s backup.

McGloin started six games as a rookie in 2013, and was in position to replace Carr in the divisional round, but was only able to be active as a backup. In his place, Cook lost a 27-14 decision to the Texans.

The Eagles brought in Nick Foles and got rid of Chase Daniel, so they needed someone to backfill the roster.

    Oh wow, I thought that was Wentz in the picture.

    They brought in a Wentz clone to use on trick plays to totally confuse the defense. They can swap jerseys on the sidelines! Haha.

    Where QBs go to die.

    FYI Darrin the Raiders signed EJ Manuel, which is lateral move compared to McGloin but probably an upgrade over Cook at the moment.

    More than capable of playing in a pinch, glad to see he found a new home.

    How many redheaded QBs that throw a lot of interception do the Eagles need?

    Both are at about 1:1 for TD to INT ratio.

    Fantastic clipboard holder. Great cheerleader. Just don’t ask him to do much else.

    I don’t think theres 32 better Qbs then McGloin. Not saying he’s great or anything but Everytime I’ve seen him play he’s been decent. He should be competing for starters minutes on 4-5 teams. Not being a back up. That goes doubly for Foles who I think has shown to be an above average QB every time he’s played outside of St. Louis.

    just an fyi…the Raiders signed EJ Manuel, making McGloin expendable. Wish you the best in philly my scottish cuz.

    Hey Nayshun, memba last season when Carr went down and you all proclaimed MyGroin as GOAT backup? I do. So like, what happened? Did you like trade him for 2 number ones and a 2nd? LOL. EJ Manuel? KMart Blue Light Special!
