NFL Reinstates CB Tyrique McGhee

Tyrique McGhee is now free to sign with any team. The NFL has reinstated the free agent cornerback, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport (via Twitter).

Back in April, McGhee was hit with a five-game ban for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. This was the second suspension of the young cornerback’s career; during the 2020 campaign, he was suspended two games for the same violation.

McGhee had a standout career during his time at Georgia, appearing in 50 total games. He joined the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2020, and he spent his entire rookie season on the team’s practice squad.

The Rams released him shortly after he was slapped with his second suspension. Now, the 23-year-old will look to restart his career elsewhere.
