Lions' Sean McGrath: Headed to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGrath signed with the Lions on Thursday.

The terms of McGrath's contract were not disclosed, though the team did waive fellow tight end Wes Saxton in a corresponding move. McGrath spent the last two seasons with the Chargers, where he appeared in 31 games but didn't catch a touchdown while playing largely in the shadow of Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry. The door is open in Detroit for more playing time at the tight end position following the departure of Eric Ebron, though McGrath will still have to compete for snaps with the likes of Luke Willson and Levine Toilolo, leaving little fantasy upside to be had.

Sean McGrath: Entering free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGrath didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Chargers and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

McGrath spent the past two years with the Chargers, serving primarily on special teams but also logging snaps on offense as a blocking specialist. He'll likely fill a similar role wherever he may land this offseason.

Chargers' Sean McGrath: Sees limited usage in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGrath caught both of his targets for 23 yards in the 14-7 win over the Jets on Sunday.

With Hunter Henry placed on injured reserve due to a spleen injury, McGrath seemed set to receive a larger volume of targets Sunday. That didn't end up being the case, as Antonio Gates rekindled the flames of old with quarterback Philip Rivers, turning back the clock to put together a vintage performance (six catches for 81 yards and a touchdown). Given both McGrath and third-string tight end Jeff Cumberland saw less than 30 snaps Sunday, it seems unlikely either player will find themselves in a position of fantasy relevance in Week 17.

Chargers' Sean McGrath: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGrath (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

McGrath practiced in a limited capacity every day this week, which was good enough for the tight end to warrant an active status in Week 5. Despite suiting up, McGrath has seen just one target in three games this season, so he's unlikely to have a spot in the offensive game plan as long as Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates remain at full strength.

Chargers' Sean McGrath: Questionable to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGrath (foot) was a full participant in Friday's practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

McGrath was a full participant in practice all week, so there is likely no real concern surrounding the tight end's health for the weekend. Still, McGrath will likely be a game-time decision Sunday.
