McGrath signed his his exclusive rights tender with the Chargers on Thursday. With Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry seeing the bulk of the Chargers' targets among tight ends, McGrath is primarily used as a blocker. McGrath appeared in all 16 games last season and caught two passes for 25 yards.
McGrath caught two passes for 25 yards with the Chargers in 2016. McGrath was mainly used as a blocking tight end when he played, while Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry garnered most of the attention from quarterback Philip Rivers. A restricted free agent heading into the offseason, it seems likely the Chargers will opt to bring back their tight end, but with both Gates and Henry expected to return, McGrath isn't expected to put together strong enough numbers to garner fantasy attention.
McGrath was waived by the Chargers on Saturday. McGrath was waived in order to promote Tyrell Williams off the practice squad, a player who will give San Diego much-needed depth at the wide receiver position.
McGrath agreed to a contract with the Chargers on Tuesday. McGrath has not played in a game since 2013, but he did spend time with the Colts during training camp, so he figures to be in shape. He will provide the Chargers some depth at the tight end position with both Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green banged up.
After activating tight end Sean McGrath from the reserve/did not report list, the Chiefs waived the tight end Wednesday, reports The Baltimore Sun. McGrath did not play during the 2014 season. In 2013, he caught 26 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns.
