Chiefs Sign QB Matt McGloin & WR Nelson Spruce


The Kansas City Chiefs announced Friday that they’ve signed QB Matt McGloin and WR Nelson Spruce to contracts.

McGloin, 28, wound up signing on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2013. He returned to the Raiders on a one-year, $2.553 million restricted deal for the 2016 season.

As an unrestricted free agent, McGloin signed a one-year contract with the Eagles last year but was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason. McGloin signed on with the Texans last November but was waived a week later.

In 2016, McGloin completed 8 of 15 passing attempts (53.3) for 50 yards passing and no touchdowns or interceptions.

Spruce, 25, signed on with the Rams as an undrafted rookie out of Colorado back in 2016 and was able to make the team’s 53-man roster. The Rams placed Spruce on injured reserve during the season before eventually designating him to return.

Unfortunately, Los Angeles waived Spruce with an injury designation coming out of the preseason last year and eventually cut him loose with an injury settlement. The Bears later signed Spruce to their practice squad but his stint in Chicago lasted just a few weeks.

During his four-year college career at Colorado, he accumulated 294 receptions for 3,347 yards receiving and 23 touchdowns.
