Bucs trade Kelcie McCray to Chiefs for Rishaw Johnson

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.

    Is that a stoned Greg Oden with dreads?

    I am not sure if he improved with KC but I watched Johnson for two years in Seattle struggle in pass and run blocking. He was just so slow footed to engage I never thought he would be a starter.

    Very excited that anybody not named “Oniel Cousins” could conceivably be playing at guard for the Bucs.

    Don’t get too excited, this guy couldn’t beat out a rookie 6th round draft pick ! Slow footed and off balance most of the time but good luck any Buc fans have info on this safety?

    I will miss Kelcie McCray. I thought that when he punched the ball out of Magatron’s hands at the goal line to save the win was the defensive play of the year.

    Those are some expensive hair extensions.

    Yesterday rookie free agent safety Daniel Sorensen reportedly made the best play at practice, making a nice pic. If he could only tackle he’d have a shot. He just gets blown up. I wonder if this trade portends him getting cut.
