Buccaneers Tampa Bay continue to add help to Tom Brady.
On Thursday, the team reportedly signed the veteran running LeSean McCoy on a one-year deal, according to ESPN̵7;s Adam Schefter.
“He is very excited to play with set tools like Brady and Gronk trying to win another championship,” said his agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
Buffalo bonds released McCoy last August, who saved them $ 6.425 million, for NFML Kevin Patra. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs shortly thereafter.
Kansas City had signed Carlos Hyde to help fill the void left by Kareem Hunt, but quickly poured over it. The bosses fired him from a trade to the Houston Texans, who cleared the way for McCoy to arrive.
McCoy did not post gaudy numbers while splitting with Damien Williams, but he was productive in his limited role. He ran for 465 yards and four touches on 101 carts and caught 28 assists for 181 yards and one quick kick.
Among the 45 races with at least 100 carriers, McCoy was ranked 28th in the DYAR (substation-regulated yards), for Football aliens.
Kansas City selected Clyde Edvard-Helaire in the 32nd general election, eliminating reunion disputes with McCoy.
The yards average for McCoy strollers fell from 4.0 in 2017 to 3.2 in 2018 before the Bonds moved. He is also third among active players in total touchdown (2,950), so he has a lot of distance in his body.
By managing his workload, Chiefs helped McCoy stay effective. His 4.6 wheelchair yards were his second highest since 2013, his most recent All-Pro season.
This should be the project for the Bucs. He will compete with rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn to support Ronald Jones II, and Tampa Bay could seek to expand his role in the passing game compared to his season in Kansas City.
Given Jones ’inconsistency in his new career, McCoy could have a significant role for the Bucs.
