Meggett was recently on the practice roster of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League, but he was released in July after signing in June.

Meggett ran for 2,411 yards and 18 touchdowns during his career at Maryland, including 896 yards and four touchdowns as a senior while averaging 5.2 yards per carry.
