Chiefs TE Sean McGrath Retires

Kansas City TE, Sean McGrath has decided to retire from the NFL, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced Saturday.

There was some speculation earlier this week that McGrath was pondering retirement.

The move comes as somewhat of a shock. McGrath is only 26 and seemed to be a player on the rise in Andy Reid’s offensive system. Injuries forced McGrath, know for his magnificent, flowing beard, into the lineup in 2013. The former undrafted free agent caught 26 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns. The Chiefs snagged him off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.

As of now, there does not appear to be any information on why McGrath came to this decision. He did report to training camp but was not on the field with the other players. That is when the speculation began that McGrath might hang up his cleats.

With McGrath’s departure, the Chiefs are left with Anthony Fasano, Travis Kelce, Demetrius Harris and Richard Gordon at TE.

The staff here at Arrowhead Addict wishes McGrath the best. We’ll certainly miss his gritty play and of course, that awesome beard.

What do you think, Addicts? Should the Chiefs bring another TE to camp?
