What we’re excited to see at Kansas City Chiefs training camp
With training camp right around the corner, one battle that has peaked my interest is the third string quarterback battle. Veteran Matt McGloin will be competing for a roster spot with undrafted free agent Chase Litton.
McGloin was signed by the Oakland Raiders in 2013 as an UDFA himself. He spent 4 years with Oakland and played in a total of 13 games with a 58.1% completion percentage, 1,868 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and a 75.3 passer rating to show for it. McGloin was then signed by the Houston Texans in 2017 before he became a free agent and signed with the Chiefs this offseason. He has a veteran presence but he’s not guaranteed a roster spot. He will have to prove he has more to offer than Litton.
Litton is an UDFA out of Marshall. Over the course of three years with the Herd, Litton has plenty of experience with 34 starts to go with his 8,335 passing yards, a 60.8% completion rate, 72 touchdowns, 31 interceptions and a career passer rating of 133.9. While college isn’t the pros, Litton will give McGloin a fight for that No. 3 spot on the depth chart.
So, who gets the No. 3 spot? Is it Litton? Is it McGloin? Does Litton go to practice squad? Is Litton safe on the practice squad or will another team steal him from us? So many questions yet to be answered. Fortunately the wait is almost over, Addicts. [Brandon Norris]
