KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs’ backup tight end has few rivals when it comes to facial hair. He’s not doing too bad at catching the football, either.
Sean McGrath is quickly becoming known for his gnarly whiskers, and a hero to Chiefs fans for the way he’s filled in for banged-up starters Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce.
A product of Division II Henderson State, McGrath was claimed just before the season and has filled in admirably. He had the first two catches of his NFL career two weeks ago against Dallas, and last week had four catches for 31 yards in a win over Philadelphia.
Then there’s the facial hair, which sprouts out of his chinstrap at all sorts of crazy angles. McGrath has been growing it since St. Patrick’s Day and has no plans to trim it soon.
