The San Diego Chargers added another tight end to the mix on Tuesday, signing veteran Sean McGrath and waiving guard Craig Watts.
The 6-5, 259-pound McGrath retired following his second season in 2013 after leading all Kansas City Chiefs’ tight ends with 26 receptions for 302 yards and two touchdowns. He originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012, and has appeared in 18 games with nine starts. McGrath took a respite from playing football in 2014 to return to school and work on his master’s degree at his alma mater, Henderson State University, in Arkadelphia, Ark. He will wear number 84.
He returned to the NFL this offseason with the Indianapolis Colts, catching eight passes for 62 yards in four preseason games. After being waived in September, he spent time on the Colts’ practice squad last month.
Watts was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad prior to Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears after center-guard Chris Watt was placed on IR (shoulder). While active, he did not see any snaps.
