The Kansas City Chiefs have just released a guy that has been retired since last summer. The team has announced that they have released tight end Sean McGrath.

The program is that the 27-year-old McGrath retired from the league on July 26th, 2014. However, they will still paying him money to be on the roster.

With the move today, the team saves $585,000 in salary. That was going to be his salary for the 2015 season, before being a restricted free agent in 2016, which will never happen now since he retired.

He signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012, where he played in just two games. Then, in 2013, he signed with the Chiefs, where he played in all 16 games.

As a target for Alex Smith, McGrath had 26 receptions for 302 yards and two touchdowns. These were the only stats in his short-lived NFL career.

It appears that McGrath left football behind after his heart was no longer in the game.
