McBride signed a contract with the Jaguars on Thursday. McBride was let go by the Redskins on April 30 after the team drafted a pair of receivers. McBride's last regular-season game action came back in 2017 (with the Bears) and he'll have his work cut out for him in order to secure a roster spot with Jacksonville.
The Redskins waived McBride on Tuesday. McBride tried out for the Jets before the 2018 season but was cut before Week 1. He was picked up by the Redskins in January. The team has since brought in receivers Terry McLaurin and Kelvin Harmon via the draft, so McBride's services are no longer needed in Washington.
McBride signed a reserve-future contract with the Redskins on Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. McBride had a strong preseason with the Jets but fell victim to the numbers game. He'll have the chance to earn his stay with Washington should he produce during training camp and beyond.
McBride was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. McBridge signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets in January and was featured in a few of their preseason games, but he was ultimately unable to distinguish himself in a relatively young group of New York wideouts fighting for a roster spot.
McBride caught both of his targets for 24 yards Thursday in a 15-13 loss to the Redskins during Week 2 of the preseason. McBride was tremendous on New York's second possession, picking up back-to-back third down conversions with catches of 13 and 11 yards. He didn't make much of an impression in the preseason opener despite seeing the field for a team-high 32 of 66 offensive snaps, but the 25-year-old wide receiver seems to be developing a nice rapport with rookie quarterback Sam Darnold in practice. If he can keep carrying that connection over in game situations like he did here, McBride could sneak onto the 53-man roster.
