RB McCoy reaches one-year deal with Bucs
Veteran running back LeSean McCoy has reached a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, agent Drew Rosenhaus said Thursday.
“He’s very excited to play with established vets like (Tom) Brady and (Rob Gronkowski) in trying to win another championship,” Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Bucs gave McCoy the veteran minimum, just more than $1 million.
This is the 32-year-old’s fourth team after spending last season with the Kansas City Chiefs. McCoy played in 13 games (nine starts) and rushed for 465 yards and four touchdowns during the regular season. He played only one snap and didn’t record a stat during the Chiefs’ run through the playoffs to the Super Bowl title.
The Chiefs signed McCoy to a one-year deal in September after he was released by the Buffalo Bills. McCoy became less involved in Kansas City’s offense as the season wore on and was inactive for Super Bowl LIV.
The six-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time first-team All-Pro joins Ronald Jones, Dare Ogunbowale and third-round draft pick Ke’Shawn Vaughn at the top of the Bucs’ backfield. TJ Logan and Raymond Calais are also vying for spots on the team. Vaughn was put on the COVID-19/reserve list this week.
McCoy has rushed for 11,071 yards in his career, third among active players behind only Frank Gore and Adrian Peterson and 22nd in NFL history. McCoy has 73 career touchdowns.
