Matt McGloin signs with Houston after Deshaun Watson injury

The Houston Texans have signed quarterback Matt McGloin in the wake of the season-ending knee injury to Deshaun Watson.

What It Means:

McGloin will assume the backup quarterback job to Tom Savage in Week 9. He is familiar with the Texans offensive system as he spent his college days playing at Penn State for Houston head coach Bill O'Brien. The team has also not ruled out signing another quarterback and have reportedly had mild interest in working out free agent Colin Kaepernick.

In 13 career games played, McGloin has a completion percentage of 58.1% while throwing 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
