Chiefs tight end Sean McGrath retires

Sean McGrath led Chiefs tight ends in receptions last season, but he isn’t going to hold onto that status this season.

McGrath has decided to retire from the NFL after two seasons. McGrath, who had 26 catches last season after playing two games for the Seahawks in 2012, is dealing with some personal issues, according to Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

“McGrath is gonna retire, that’s what we’ve been told by him,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “I wish him the best. He’s a good kid. It’s a personal decision he made.”

With the 26-year-old hanging up the cleats, the Chiefs will look to Travis Kelce and Anthony Fasano to be their top tight ends in 2014. That was the plan last year as well but injuries led the team to turn to McGrath, an option that won’t be available should injury strike again this season.

    His beard had a great run. He can now pass the best beard in the NFL torch to Eric Weddle.

    Weird. He looked good in a couple Seahawks camps & they should not have cut him. Never thought he would quit after a good season with the Chiefs.

    when the ship is going down, the smart sailors depart. Hence, the great exodus from kc continues.

    man the Chiefs have lost a lot of productive talent from last year. Especially considering the schedule this season is much more difficult than last year.

    LOL. The Chiefs have lost 9 players from last year and everyone thinks they lost all their talent. Broncos have lost 15, so why aren’t we hearing the same thing about them?

    Because, Denver has replaced their fired 15 with better players! The Chiefs have not.
