McKay joined the Falcons in 2003 after serving as general manager of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for nearly nine years. He worked in the same role in Atlanta until moving up to president in 2008, clearing the way for Thomas Dimitroff to take over as GM.

In addition to his team duties, McKay serves as chairman of the NFL competition committee, which recommends rule changes and looks for ways to improve player safety.
