This past weekend could have been a lot worse for Kelcie McCray.
On Saturday, the day all 32 NFL teams were required to trim their 75-man rosters down to a maximum of 53 players, the fourth-year safety McCray was called into the office of Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey, a sign that doesn't often bode well for one's future at this particular time of year.
But Dorsey quickly reassured McCray that he wasn't being cut. Instead, the Chiefs GM relayed to McCray that he had been acquired by the Seahawks, who shipped a 2016 fifth-round draft pick to Kansas City for the safety's services.
"It is nice to be wanted," McCray said Monday from his new locker at Seahawks headquarters. "It could have ended up a lot worse. I know a lot of guys, a lot of my friends are without a job right now. So it could be a lot worse."
