McGill, 27, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State back in 2015. He lasted just a few months in Seattle before he was claimed off of waivers by the Colts.
McGill had had brief stints with the Browns, Chiefs, Chargers and Eagles before the Chargers claimed him off waivers near the end of 2018. Los Angeles waived McGill at the end of the preseason and he signed on with Washington last year.
From there, McGill returned to the Chargers before eventually joining the Saints late last season. He had signed with the Eagles this offseason before being released and later re-signed to the practice squad.
In 2019, McGill appeared in three games and recorded two tackles and no sacks.
