The Houston native is Army's all-time sacks and tackles for loss leader. The 6-foot, 251-pound linebacker is the only player in the history of Army's program to produce two double-digit sack seasons. 

He was awarded the 2011 East-West Shrine Game Pat Tillman Award, which is given to the player who best exemplifies character, intelligence, sportsmanship and service.

Prior to his NFL career, McNary served in the Army for two years and was stationed at Fort Hood in Texas.

In four seasons with the Colts, McNary produced 79 tackles and a forced fumble. McNary appeared in 49 games (seven starts) with the Colts.

Last season, McNary produced a team-high nine special teams tackles. He played 74-percent of the Colts' special teams snaps last season.
