A 6-foot-6, 259-pound former undrafted free agent, McKever began his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before catching on with the Jacksonville Jaguars later the same year. He did not appear in a regular-season game with the Jaguars this past season, though he signed a futures contract with the team late in 2018. Jacksonville waived McKever last week.
McKever played his college ball at North Carolina State before finishing up at Florida International. The N.C. State staff shfited McKever around the roster, moving him to wide receiver and the defensive line before finally playing him as a tight end. McKever produced a 4.79 second 40-yard dash, 31.5-inch vertical, 119-inch broad jump, and 7.26 second 3-cone drill at his pro day.
With McKever in the fold, the Packers’ roster has reached the 90-man offseason limit.
