The Detroit Lions continued to overhaul their tight end position, releasing Wes Saxton and signing 30-year-old veteran Sean McGrath, who has logged 32 career catches and scored a pair of touchdowns in previous stints with the Seahawks, Chiefs, and Chargers.
McGrath is an in-line blocking specialist who doesn't offer up much as a receiver or for fantasy purposes. He'll likely battle Levine Toilolo for that role with the Detroit this summer.
The San Diego Chargers have signed former Kansas City Chief TE Sean McGrath. In 2013, his only season played as a pro, McGrath caught 26 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns. In 2014, he surprisingly opted to retire instead of returning to football.
It's hard to imagine Sean McGrath having a sizable role in an offense with so many solidified receiving weapons. With Antonio Gates back to full health and Ladarius Green hoping to return following the bye-week, McGrath will have to fight for snaps to say the least.
