The Oakland Raiders added another arm to their quarterback situation today, when they signed former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin. The undrafted free agent played under former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien in 2012.

McGloin joins four other quarterbacks on the current Raiders' roster. Matt Flynn is the starter as the offseason gets underway with organized team activities next month. After Flynn, the depth chart will consist of Terrelle Pryor, fourth round pick Tyler Wilson, Kyle Padron and McGloin. 

The 6-1, 210 pound McGloin signed a three year deal with Oakland. Last season at Penn State he threw for 3,271 yards, 24 touchdowns, and five interceptions. After his sophomore and junior seasons saw McGloin in and out of the starting role, he took a big leap under the tutelage of O'Brien. He will now compete for a roster or practice squad spot for the Raiders. 

Because Oakland inked Josh Cribbs and McGloin, they waived two players. Linebacker Jerrell Harris and long snapper Nick Guess were the victims.
