McGuire signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report. The running back initially signed to the Chiefs' practice squad back in November and he'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason. Both LeSean McCoy and Spencer Ware are slated to become free agents this offseason which could give McGuire added reps this spring.
McGuire signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. Damien Williams (ribs) and LeSean McCoy (undisclosed) were injured during Week 11's win over the Chargers, so the Chiefs are bringing in additional depth in case one or both are unable to play Sunday against the Raiders. McGuire last played in 2018 for the Jets, and he struggled on the ground with 2.7 YPC over the last four weeks but punched in three touchdowns. The 25-year-old has pass-catching upside, though, as he recorded 11 receptions for 126 yards and a score over that stretch.
McGuire worked out for the Texans recently, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports. McGuire would only project as depth on this squad, barring an injury. Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson are coming off one of their best rushing games of the season, whereas the 25-year-old hasn't played an NFL snap since last year.
McGuire was released off the Browns' practice squad Tuesday. McGuire joined Cleveland's practice squad after being waived by the team Sept. 19 but will now search for a new team. The 25-year-old spent his first two seasons with the Jets and rushed 180 times for 591 yards before being waived ahead of September's roster deadline.
McGuire has been added to the Browns' practice squad. McGuire, a 2017 sixth-rounder, racked up 180 carries for 591 yards and four TDs, to go along with 36 catches for 370 yards and two receiving scores for the Jets in 24 games over the course of the 2017 and 2018 campaigns. He therefore gives the Browns a depth option at running back with some recent NFL experience under his belt.
