Early years[edit]

McBath was born in Gainesville, Texas.[1] As a defensive back/wide receiver in high school, he led the Gainesville Leopards to a 2003 3A state football championship, a 35–24 win over a Burnet High School team, led by current third string Dallas Cowboys quarterback Stephen McGee and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Jordan Shipley.[2][3]

Professional career[edit]

Denver Broncos[edit]

The Broncos selected McBath in the 2nd round (48th overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft. On July 26, 2009, McBath signed a four-year, $3.85 million contract with $2.01 million guaranteed. His base salary will be $310,000 in 2009, $395,000 in 2010, $480,000 in 2011, and $565,000 in 2012.

McBath played in 13 games during his rookie year, accumulating 26 tackles (22 solo, 4 assisted).[4] During Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns, McBath intercepted quarterback Brady Quinn for his first career interception. McBath's next interception would not be until Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts quarterback at the time, Peyton Manning. McBath would suffer a broken forearm only a few plays later, eventually placing him on the injured reserve list for the rest of the season.[5] On September 4, 2011, McBath was waived by Denver.

Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

McBath was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars on December 12, 2011 and later released on April 23, 2012.

San Francisco 49ers[edit]

McBath was signed by the San Francisco 49ers on July 23, 2012 to a one-year deal.

McBath re-signed with the 49ers to another one-year contract.[6] On August 22, 2013, the 49ers placed McBath on injured reserve due to a foot injury he suffered in the second preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.[7]
