McCarthy played his college ball at Notre Dame and is from Youngstown, Ohio, a mere 20 minutes from where well-respected Chiefs blogger and 2009′s Sexiest Man Alive, Patrick Allen, grew up.
Since entering the NFL with the Donkeys in 2010, McCarthy has played in 12 NFL games, registering seven tackles.
I think I am just going to go ahead and say what we are all thinking.
This spells the end of the “Shabby” Sabby Piscitelli era in Kansas City.
I would like to pause now for a moment of silence.
This is yet another bottom-of-the-roster move I told you all to expect over the coming days. It is clear the Chiefs have submitted some offers to some fringe guys hoping to catch on in camp.
While McCarthy doesn’t have much of an NFL resume, he is young and a bit of an unknown. The Chiefs are thin on safety depth. Well, they have a bunch of younger safeties they know suck (Piscitelli, Donnie “Don’t call me Martha!” Washington), so while McCarthy might suck too, we don’t know that for sure yet and that is at least a step in the right direction.
Now let the Piscitelli contract watch begin. I for one am not going to sleep until Pioli gets something done.
