Eagles agree to 1-year deal with QB Matt McGloin

The Philadelphia Eagles announced the signing of quarterback Matt McGloin to a one-year deal on Monday.

McGloin, a former walk-on at Penn State, has improbably been Oakland's No. 2 since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

McGloin, 27, spent the first four years of his National Football League career with the Raiders after signing with Oakland as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

The reason? His backup, former MSU star Connor Cook, now looks to be in line for the main backup gig behind Derek Carr.

However, the Eagles have continued to shuffle around their depth at the quarterback position behind starter Carson Wentz this offseason.

The Eagles brought in Nick Foles and got rid of Chase Daniel, so they needed someone to backfill the roster. DeFilippo worked with McGloin in Oakland during the 2013 and 2014 seasons. As a result, McGloin will likely make his way to Philadelphia as the Eagles' third-string quarterback for the upcoming 2017-2018 season.

In 14 career games played (seven starts), McGloin completed 58.1% of his passes for 1,868 yards (6.7 average), 11 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and a 75.3 passer rating.
