As the Kansas City Chiefs settle in at training camp in St. Joe, Missouri and begin to get into the full swing of things, it seems like an appropriate time to recap on all of the news and notes out of Chiefs camp thus far. Sean McGrath Officially Retires After Chiefs tight end Sean McGrath missed the first two days of training camp, the word around the league was that the 26 year old was considering retirement. On Saturday, the three-year veteran’s retirement became official. McGrath, a two-year veteran who the Chiefs acquired via the waiver wire last season following his stint with the Seattle Seahawks, immediately became a fan favorite in Kansas City. Whether that was due to his surprisingly impressive play on the field, his happy-go-lucky personality or a combination of the two, Chiefs fans loved McGrath, and he loved the attention. For what it’s worth, though, we may have been seeing the last of Sean McGrath even if he had zero thoughts of retiring. With Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce back healthy, and with the emergence of 6’7 TE Demetrius Harris, the future wasn’t so bright for The Beard in the first place. Chiefs Sign ILB Josh Muaga, TE Adam Schiltz Prior to the commencement of training camp, the Chiefs officially signed former Redskins ILB Josh Muaga to a one-year deal. Kansas City doesn’t necessarily lack depth at linebacker, but allowing an established veteran to compete for a roster spot and push younger teammates can do nothing but have a positive effect on the defense. Schiltz, a former Emporia State tight end, will replace Sean McGrath in camp. The Chiefs likely are content with the tight ends the three tight ends they have, but injuries do occur. Players similar to Schiltz that are deemed nothing more than “camp bodies” are only one injury from stepping in and getting an actual look from coaches. Sean Smith Continues to Run with 2nd team Defense Sean Smith with the second team early on here. He was demoted near end of offseason. Ron Parker on first. — Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) July 24, 2014 Following CB Sean Smith’s DUI arrest in May, the Chiefs sent down the presumed starting cornerback to the second team defense, propelling Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker to the first team. Defensive Coordinator Bob Sutton admitted that Smith is “not far away” from retaking the starting job, but said that he needs to keep working, according to KC Star’s Terez Paylor. Regardless, punishing Smith for his arrest sends the right message to the team.  You may also be interested in:Chiefs Training Camp Update: An unexpected retirement, stock up, stock downThe Kansas City Chiefs weekend training camp photo galleryKansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith ranked 19th best in NFL, full top-30 revealed
