Sean McGrath planning return to football


Tight end Sean McGrath didn’t report to Kansas City Chiefs training camp last year as he elected to retire from football to deal with personal issues.

A year later, McGrath is trying to return to his football career.

According to Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star, McGrath’s agent, John Owens, said that his client is planning a return to football.

That return will not be with the Chiefs. Kansas City waived McGrath from their roster on Wednesday. He spent all of last season on the reserve/did not report list.

McGrath appeared in two games for Seattle in 2012 after signing as an undrafted free agent. He was one of the team’s final cuts prior to the 2013 season and was claimed off waivers by the Chiefs. McGrath appeared in all 16 games for Kansas City with nine starts and caught 26 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns.

  1. As a Chiefs fan I was excited to see this, then a little let down to see he won’t be returning to the Chiefs. With the release of Fasano, he could have been a great number two tight end to go with Kelce.

    Wherever he goes, I wish him and his amazing beard the best. Dude plays with passion and is pretty damn reliable from what I saw in the one season he played for the Chiefs.

  2. Why assume he’s planning a return because he ran out of money? He retired to deal with personal issues. Maybe he’s got the issues dealt with and is ready to resume his football career. The guy is a good TE and I’m sorry he won’t be back with the Chiefs.

    Best of luck to you Sean.

  3. I was sad to see him not make the hawks 53, he looked effective as both a receiving threat and as an inline blocker dude.

  4. I don’t know how he didn’t make the 53 man roster on the Seahawks given the depth at the position. There must have been some outside issues, or perhaps they knew his heart wasn’t in it and he needed to figure some things out. He’s a solid TE2 on any team.
