Although McGloin had been with the Raiders since signing as an undrafted free agent in 2013, his contract expired after the 2016 season, and the team has not given him any indication that they plan to keep him. Slated to enter his first season as a member of the franchise come 2017-18, Manuel mentioned that it was the presence of current Raiders' offensive coordinator Todd Downing that swayed his decision in the end.

Manuel was a Bills first-round pick in 2013 and opened his rookie year as the starter in Buffalo. A report last week indicated that Manuel would be making his way to Oakland.

The former Florida State product made just seven starts - one in 2016 - over the past three seasons, losing his job to Tyrod Taylor.

The four-year veteran will compete with second-year player Connor Cook to back up starting quarterback Derek Carr.

Manuel appeared in 29 games with 17 starts over his four-year career in Buffalo, logging 3,502 yards for 19 touchdowns with 15 interceptions while adding four scores on the ground.

Condo will return to the Raiders for his 11th season after serving as the team's long snapper since 2007.
