Texans release Matt McGloin

The Houston Texans released quarterback Matt McGloin.

What It Means:

McGloin has been replaced by Josh Johnson as the third quarterback in Houston behind Tom Savage and T.J. Yates. The 2013 undrafted free agent was signed last Friday after the Texans lost Deshaun Watson to a season-ending knee injury.

In 13 games across four seasons with the Oakland Raiders, McGloin completed 161-of-277 passes (58.1 percent) for 1,868 yards with 11 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
