Yesterday, the now former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin tweeted that he was looking forward to getting to a rookie mini camp this Thursday. There was just a slight problem. McGloin was not leaking which team he was joining in camp, and he directed those in the media wondering to direct their inquiries to his agent.
Today that changed as McGloin broke the news himself on Twitter.
Rookie camp with the Washington Redskins Thursday.

We'll have to wait and see just how McGloin fits in to the Redskins. Last year the NFC East franchise drafted Baylor and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III to be their franchise quarterback. When healthy, that works. The Redskins also drafted former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has taken on a back-up role in Washington. The Redskins also have Rex Grossman and Pat White listed on the roster, so finding a roster spot may prove to be a difficult task for McGloin. But is there one thing Penn State fans know about McGloin by now, it is that he is not one to back away from a challenge and he certainly is a man who will be motivated to prove his doubters wrong. In a sense, that is what has been doing for the past three years in State College.
One thing McGloin has in his corner is a year of playing experience under the guidance of a pro-minded coach with Bill O'Brien. Playing a year in the type of offense he did, leading the Big Ten in a number of passing categories certainly seems to indicate that McGloin is capable of running an offense.
