Bucs sign LeSean McCoy

LeSean McCoy’s NFL career isn’t over just yet.

McCoy, the veteran running back who was largely phased out of the Chiefs’ offense last season, will get another shot with the Buccaneers.

The Bucs and McCoy agreed to a one-year contract today, agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed.

In his one and only season with the Chiefs last year, McCoy carried 101 times for 465 yards and four touchdowns and also added 28 catches for 181 yards and another touchdown. But most of that production came early in the season. In the postseason, McCoy never touched the ball.

Now the Bucs will see if McCoy has any gas left in the tank, and an offense that has already brought in Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski adds another veteran with a Pro Bowl pedigree.

  1. Good pickup if he was brought in for a dime.

    Guess Devonta Freeman’s greed got the best of him.

  2. I hate playing DR. Obvious but I’m afraid Shady better days are behind him, there is a reason why he was a healthy SCRATCH in the Super bowl, its one thing to lose a step but you don’t want to now suffer from a severe case of FUMBLITIS.

  3. RBs don’t typically improve as they get older. Not like the Bucs have a great OL to create space for him. See Bucs RBs YPC from last year.

  4. Nice pick up as long as he doesn’t quit or get hurt. At this point he’s a scratch off lottery ticket which is on him.

    Loading up for 8-8.
    ___________________________
    They were 7-9 last season. You know, when Winston single-handedly lost the Bucs 4 games. Games where he threw 4 and 5 interceptions, tossed multiple pick 6s, or took 6 and 7 sacks were not unheard of.

  6. I like it!! He can add something there and not have to be relied upon to carry the load by any means… Brady will make the most if whatever hes still got.

  7. If Brady and McCoy played on a law firm softball team, they would be the old guys. This isn’t going to end well for the Bucs.

  8. Can Shady really say he’s won a Super Bowl when he was a healthy scratch and didn’t even play in the post season? Not gunna lie I feel bad for him not even being dressed in the SB, that has to hurt. This would be the year to leave it all out on the field if he has anything left.

  9. Haven’t we seen teams load up on past their prime players many many times before. Does it ever work out?

    Except this team didn’t “load up” they already had really good WR and TE
    They just added depth and the GOAT

  11. their rb group is terrible and with that oline? yikes! 43 year old Brady with no camp is in for a world of hurt like namath at the end of his career.

  12. The Tampa bay Bucs is one Frank Gore away from fielding a team ready for Shady Pines Retirement Home.lets face it that clubhouse should have a steady dose of Jello and Bingo.

    The Bucs RB’s were just complete garbage. PFF ranked the Bucs line as the 7th best in the league.

    Don’t forget to replace the Gatorade with Ensure and have plenty of Depends on hand.

  15. The Bucs didn’t have enough cap room to overpay for McCoy. Like previously stated, the Bucs O-Line is not even close to being bad. Winston holding on to the ball too long because of his inability to read defenses pre snap was the issue. McCoy is still a very good receiver out of the backfield and will still draw attention from linebackers which means two tight end sets are hard to defend. Bucs have some pretty decent TE’s as well as a couple of Pro Bowl receivers. Brady will be just fine.

  16. Happy with the signing because it brings another winning attitude into the locker room. Another player that knows what it takes to get a ring and I have no problem with paying for a year of veteran leadership at the RB position. A position that has not had a leadership presence since Ernest Graham lined up in the backfield.

    It’s one thing to lean on an ‘everyday’ vet like Dare, it’s another when the vet is a possible HoF candidate (as Joe suggests).

    The Bucs are a playoff team

    ——————-

    Oh we are up to that now?

  18. McCoy will have to settle for spot duty. I have my doubts his body will hold up for more than that. I think a lot of that will come in passing situations.

    If this team can gel, and injury free… Watch out!!

    This could be said about ANY team..

  20. Ok DB’s and I don’t mean Defensive backs!
    If the Bucs don’t win the Superbowl this year I will give One Million dollars to everyone who has made negative comments before I wrote this,,, no one after! If they do win the Superbowl everyone that accepts this challenge must do the Honorable thing ~ See the movie Goodfather II for more information.
    No Season = Push!
    BUCS = WINNERS

  21. I apologize in advance to the waiters and waitresses in the greater Tampa Bay area! All joking aside, not a bad pick up. If nothing else, he’s a smart veteran who is very good at picking up the blitz. Something Brady will need. I’m not a big fan of him as a person (there’s a reason they call him “Shady”), but I always respected his talent.

  22. Dude!!!! McCoy to the bucs!!!!! This team would make a heck of a fantasy football line up……. in 2011

  23. Bucs better teach McCoy to hold onto the ball. Doomed his time with the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs last season.

  24. It’s Super bowl or bust for every team. It’s a worn out cliche! Let’s see if they can make the playoffs and if we are being honest, they win the NFC South. If they do, they’ve over achieved!

    Bucs fans should be cautiously optimistic!

  25. Is this is beyond Shady. As low class as they come. Fitting he teamed up with some cheaters.

  26. Loved Shady on the field. Great career. but it’s time to hang them up. He’ll be cut….if there is a season.

    Lame

  28. I’m surprised at all the negative sentiment. Yes he was a scratch for the playoffs last year, but while he was playing he looked great, and had more yards per carry than any other Chiefs back. I think he’s going to surprise a lot of you guys.
