Raiders add a fifth QB to the mix

Quarterback Matt McGloin said Thursday that he signed a three-year contract with the Raiders.
McGloin and his agent broke the news via Twitter. The Raiders have not confirmed the transaction.
McGloin played collegiately at Penn State, where he departed as the school’s all-time leader in touchdown passes. He also set several single-season records during his tenure at Penn State.
The Raiders enter this season without a proven quarterback to replace traded veteran Carson Palmer.
Matt Flynn is the presumptive starter, though he has started only two games in his five NFL seasons. Third-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor started one game his first two seasons.
The Raiders also used a fourth-round draft pick on Tyler Wilson in the NFL draft last month and signed undrafted free agent Kyle Padron.
McGloin went undrafted last month, but he received plenty of attention from teams interested in a backup quarterback. He worked out for the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers before he signed with the Raiders.

    CBA says that all UDFAs get three-year, non-guaranteed deals.

    Didn’t know that either. I retract my “goodbye” to TP.

    @HB

    are you taking notes from Raider O?

    why make this personal?

    I don’t need blogging advice.. lol
    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    You make things personal when you tell people what they shouldn’t talk about here, when you insult their beliefs, and when you talk about their families/ or their parenting skills.
    It’s not rocket science.

    Raider O,

    i’m flattered (I guess) but let it go

    I’m flattered too. You don’t want my beef? lol

    Kluwe might want ur beef.

    An awkward sentence from the previous post: “Kluwe already has some Raiders in him”.

    And soon may have more!

    Zing!

  • Raiders2002

    This is it!! The missing piece to the puzzle…great move Reg, how about we just give TP a fair shot and watch him do work!! Or focus on getting C Woodson back home where he belongs

    A few ways to view the Kluwe signing:

    1) Reggie is anti-Al Davis and should have kept Lechler.

    2) Reggie is racist (post traumatic slave syndrome–i could barely type that from the laughter) and won’t give King the chance he somehow “deserves”.

    3) Reggie cleared Lechler’s out of whack contract, especially with evidence that he’s slipping, and is bringing in a vet to compete with a promising youngster.

    Your choice of the three dictates your level of both football acumen and sanity.

  • dr_robert

    I’m guessing with cribbs, Kluwe, and mccloin on board, they will cut Cowan, Padron, and …….nelms, McGuffey, or Williams.

  • dr_robert

    All these qbs and only one new waver.

    It’s a good thing the raiders signed Chris ault. Oh wait.

  • bcz24

    Some of you have been reduced to complaining about non-guaranteed, vet minimum punter, and UDFA QB signings.

    Oh the joys of the offseason.

    ***********
    Because every signing proves the new regime hates Al Davis and is racist.

    At least that’s what I’m gleaning.

  • ShanghaiSmith

    The more QBs you have, the harder your position players will be worked. QBs also tend to have some of the better work-ethics among players, as the position demands a lot of study and preparation. I think this squad, as is, has the pure talent to be a very competitive team. Right now, Reggie is trying to create an environment to incubate and encourage this potential. There are a lot of players on the team with very high ceilings and the verdict isn’t out on these guys.

    Mcgloin is an interesting guy.

    Undersized former walk-on set lots of records at penn state, which is kind if a big deal.

    Kinda Brees-like if u choose to be optimistic.

  • bcz24

    McGloin will be a practice squader with the upside of being a solid backup in a few years… this is basically a very insignificant piece of news.

    What I do now?

  • ShanghaiSmith

    “Penn State has seen its reputation plummet since former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested on Nov. 5 and charged with sexual abuse of young boys.

    You figured it couldn’t have gotten any worse.

    Well, it has.

    On Saturday, Nate Bauer of BlueWhiteIllustrated.com reported that Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin was “knocked out” in an altercation with sophomore receiver Curtis Drake in the locker room.

    After jawing in practice, Drake reportedly tried to make amends in the locker room and McGloin took exception.

    After a push/shove from McGloin, Drake reportedly took McGloin to the floor and punched him in the chin, knocking him out.

    Later reports indicated that McGloin may have had a seizure and he was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center, where he was examined, treated and released.

    Penn State had been a reputable institution before all of this, mind you. Many graduates had gone on to do big things, garnering huge praise throughout the nation.

    But this is truly Penn State’s darkest hour.”
