Briefly a Chief, former QB Matt McGloin declares victory in Pennsylvania election

Former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt McGloin was declared a winner in the election for county commissioner in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.

A native of Scranton — home of the beloved television sitcom “The Office” and President Joseph R. Biden Jr. — McGloin began pursuing politics after his NFL career, which ended in 2020.

Though he was with Kansas City for only a matter of months, McGloin’s place in Chiefs history is an interesting one. Initially signed in late March 2018, McGloin was a teammate of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and stayed with the team through training camp before being cut on Sept. 2.

He found limited success in the NFL as a member of the Oakland Raiders from 2013 until 2016, posting a record of 1-6.
