Professional career[edit | edit source]

Philadelphia Eagles[edit | edit source]

McGlynn was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round (109th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year contract with the team on June 4, 2008.[1]

During the 2008 season, McGlynn was the backup left guard to Todd Herremans, and later Nick Cole. He was placed on injured reserve on January 7, 2009 due to a torn hamstring suffered in a Wild Card Playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings.[2]

McGlynn was inactive for every game of the 2009 season. After Jamaal Jackson suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in week 16 against the Denver Broncos, McGlynn was the backup center behind Nick Cole for the rest of the season.[3]

McGlynn became the starting center for the Eagles after Jackson suffered a torn triceps tendon before the start of the 2010 NFL season.[4] He caught the first pass of his NFL career off a deflection on September 12, 2010. It came from Kevin Kolb and went for one yard.

McGlynn was released on September 3, 2011 during final roster cuts.
