Biography

In November 2015, the Chargers signed former Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts tight end Sean McGrath to the practice squad.

He spent 2015 getting his football legs back after voluntarily walking away from the game in 2014.

McGrath originally came into the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Seahawks in 2012. He earned a spot on the practice squad and late that year, he was elevated to the active roster as the Seahawks advanced to the NFC Divisional Playoffs.

The following September, after being waived by Seattle, McGrath was claimed by the Chiefs and he blossomed in Kansas City. He played in all 16 games in 2013 and started nine, catching 26 passes for 302 yards and a pair of scores.

Fast forward to 2014 and McGrath’s demeanor as he reported to the Chiefs’ training camp at Missouri Western had changed dramatically. Instead of checking into the dorms and joining his Chiefs teammates, McGrath instead met with Head Coach Andy Reid and General Manager John Dorsey and informed them that he had decided to retire from the NFL. A studio art major in college, McGrath decided that he was going to hang up his cleats and return to Henderson State to finish his master’s degree. And with that, McGrath spent the 2014 year out of football.

The itch to play returned and McGrath signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015. He earned a spot on Indianapolis’ practice squad at the start of the season and after being released, he signed with the Chargers. McGrath spent five weeks on the Bolts’ practice squad before being elevated to the active roster for the 2015 season finale.

McGrath, who keeps one of the neatest lockers at Chargers Park, lists disc golf and yoga among his hobbies. He is known around the NFL for his trademark beard. When he played in Kansas City, teammates simply referred to him as “The Beard.” McGrath’s beard even has its own twitter handle @Beard_O_McGrath.
