Kansas City Chiefs

Following the draft, McDougald signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent.[2] McDougald was released on September 1, 2013 but was re-signed two days later. He was released again by the Chiefs on September 16, 2013 and was signed to the practice squad.[3][4] He was promoted back to the active roster October 12, 2013.[5] On November 5, 2013, McDougald was waived by the Chiefs.[6]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2013 season

McDougald was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 7, 2013.[7] He spent the 2013 season primarily on special teams and as the backup to safety Mark Barron.

2014 season

McDougald's playing time increased in 2014 after Mark Barron was traded to the St. Louis Rams.[8] Though not the starter, his time in rotation with veteran safety Major Wright proved productive. He recorded 50 tackles, 7 pass breakups and his first career interception in Week 17 on Saints' quarterback Drew Brees.

2015 season

On March 5, 2015, the Buccaneers re-signed McDougald to a restricted free agent tender, securing his services for the 2015 season.[9] He played in all 16 games with 15 starts, recording 87 tackles, four passes defensed and two interceptions.

2016 season

On April 5, 2016, McDougald signed a one-year extension with the Buccaneers.[10] He started all 16 games for the Buccaneers in 2016, setting career-highs with 91 tackles and 10 passes defensed to go along with two interceptions.

Seattle Seahawks

On March 22, 2017, McDougald signed with the Seattle Seahawks, becoming a member of the Legion of Boom.[11] He played in all 16 games for the Seahawks in 2017, taking the place of Kam Chancellor in the starting lineup due to a neck injury.

On March 12, 2018, McDougald signed a three-year contract extension with the Seahawks.[12]
