McGloin was part of a largely ineffective quarterback rotation with Rob Bolden through the 2011 season, and completed just 54.1% of his passes for 1,571 yards.  Drake was also not a tremendous part of the offense, catching just 5 passes for 102 yards in limited action; Drake missed the entire 2010 season with a twice-fractured tibia.

According to Ben Jones of, a full team meeting has been called for 4:30 p.m. ET, and kicker Anthony Fera confirms that the fight took place.

Bauer reports that the fight was large enough to cause a scene, and that police were called as a result.  Bauer's source indicates that the fight had its roots in practice-field chatter, but that Drake's attempts to patch things up after the fact led to the fisticuffs.
