Professional career[edit]

Chicago Bears[edit]

The Chicago Bears selected McBride in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He served as one of the team's reserve cornerbacks, behind Nathan Vasher and Charles Tillman, who had both been signed to multi-year contracts over the summer. McBride received playing time during week four, after Vasher sustained a groin injury that sidelined him for much of the 2007 season. McBride earned a starting role during week seven, after he established himself as one of the most consistent members of the Bears' already injury-depleted secondary.[2]

After suffering a knee sprain in the 2009 season opener against the Green Bay Packers, McBride was waived/injured by the Bears and subsequently placed on injured reserve.

Arizona Cardinals[edit]

On January 22, 2010 McBride signed a one-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals.

Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

On April 27, 2012, McBride was released by the Jaguars.[3]

McBride re-signed with the Jaguars on July 30, 2012 and was later released on August 31.

New York Giants[edit]

He signed with the Giants on January 4, 2013.

On March 12, 2014, McBride was re-signed by the New York Giants.[4]
