The Buccaneers have spent the summer looking for guards and they added another name to the hat in a trade with the Chiefs on Thursday.
Tampa acquired Rishaw Johnson from Kansas City in exchange for safety Kelcie McCray. Johnson had been in the mix for the right guard job with the Chiefs, but it would seem rookie Zach Fulton has taken that job and made it his own. He’ll presumably plunge into a similar competition with the Bucs, who have plugged Oniel Cousins in at left guard as they try to cobble things together on the interior of the line after Carl Nicks’s retirement.
Johnson played three games and made one start for the Chiefs last season.
McCray played 11 games for the Buccaneers and four for the Dolphins last year, recording 12 tackles during his time in Tampa. The Chiefs were in need of depth at safety after Sanders Commings was injured and Steve Gregory retired shortly after signing with the team.
