McGlynn (6-4, 325) was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round (109th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft.

He has appeared in 56 regular season games with 47 starts for the Eagles (2008-10), Cincinnati Bengals (2011) and Indianapolis Colts (2012-13).

In 2013, McGlynn started in 14 regular-season games and two playoff matchups for Indianapolis.

Last season, he contributed to the Colts setting a single-game franchise record of 625 yards of total offense in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

McGlynn, 29, played collegiately at Pittsburgh from 2004-07, appearing in 47 games with 43 consecutive starts to end his collegiate career. He was a three-time All-Big East honoree and was a third-team All-America selection as a senior.

McGlynn was born on March 8, 1985. He attended Austintown (Ohio) Fitch H.S., where he was a two-way starter in football and earned all-conference honors in baseball.

Did a quick search and it looks like he's always been considered a backup but got thrust into the role of starter due to injury... not to be replaced. He also played for Gruden in Cinci in 11'

Nothing jumps off the page at me, but he did play RT in college.

So, in the last 2 years, he's started all of those games with the exception of 2 games, while protecting Andrew Luck in his first 2 years in the league.
During that time, Luck was not NEARLY mollested by defenses as much as RG3 was during that same period
That in itself is an indication of a huge upgrade.

He struggled at G for the Colts but was more than adequate at C when he replaced an injured Samson Satele. I see him more as competition for Lichtensteiger than anything else.

Yea, I just started reading some things about him on a Colts forum, and they're not quite the endorsement I had hoped for. Though it could be sour grapes.
I think you're right tho. I see him only fitting on the interior line.

Gotta admit though, this quote was pretty funny :

"Mike McGlynn visited the Redskins

Rumor has it he flew SW Airlines.

He had a B boarding pass, and tried to get on with the A group.

He was bull-rushed by 98 yr old Gretta Conklin and her young husband Jonus, who just celebrated his 93rd birthday.

Needless to say...McGlynn was pressured back to the B-Line....This has yet to be confirmed by Brad Wells....then again is anything ever confirmed by Brad Wells???"

Not quite. Luck was sacked 41 times in 2012, 4th highest total in the NFL. In 2013, he was sacked 32 times, the 18th highest total in the NFL.

Griffin was sacked 30 times in 2012 and 38 times, albeit in 3 less games, in 2013. I definitely wouldn't say Luck had it THAT much better than Bob. We'll see if McGlynn is an upgrade or not but at this point, he just looks like more competition for a line that definitely had it's struggles last year.

Cooley said dude looks like a legit starter.

I'm glad we're bringing in bigger guys though, even if it's just for backup or competition

Anytime you add depth that can play more then one position on the line, it's a good thing IMHO. If he can beat out Litch at center, more power to him. I don't see him getting pushed around as easily as Litch at guard or center due to size, and weight alone.

Cooley talked at length about this signing today, and said that he expects McGlynn to push Licht or even displace him.

Here's how he assessed the guy:

Pros: Big, strong, agile, good technique - really good feet, moves as well as a much lighter man. Good at striking out with his hands, can reset and strike again quickly if his first effort doesn't take.

Cons: Occasionally has a serious lapse of technique and is capable of completely whiffing on his block, as in "Where'd he go?" Cooley alluded to some other technique lapses that weren't mentioned, but he thinks could be easily fixed with good coaching. He thinks that McGlynn is probably closing his eyes just before contact, and has to learn to keep them open (don't laugh, Cooley claims that he had to learn the same lesson - he says it's a natural reaction to close your eyes before "running into a wall").

He says he likes this signing, and won't be surprised to see McGlynn starting by week three.

Thanks for sharing - you should post more often :)

Not to sound like a repetitive downer, but the guy's a body.

Better than nothing, but nothing to get too excited about either.

There once was a man named McGlynn
Who was brought in to help us win
From Guard to Center he traveled back and forth
While meeting disdain from Rymanofthenorth.

:p

He might project to being a top backup but I would not be comfortable if I were Kory or Chris Chester.

A good offseason and the 325 pounder could be a starter at center or right guard.

I don't think it's fair to call a guy who's started a lot of NFL games a 'body'. He may not be a pro bowler, but just because the Redskins start guys that can't really play on their O-line, doesn't mean that this guy can't. I think 'a body' is way overstating it.
