LeSean McCoy agrees to one-year contract with Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are adding another notable name to their offense.
Running back LeSean McCoy agreed to a one-year deal with the team on Thursday, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, confirmed to ESPN.
McCoy, 32, started nine games for the Kansas City Chiefs last year and ran for 465 yards and four touchdowns on 101 carries. But after Damien Williams seized the lead role toward the end of the season and into the playoffs, McCoy was a healthy scratch for the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
In Tampa, the six-time Pro Bowl selection joins quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski as the latest veteran to come on board coach Bruce Arians' team.

Though the Buccaneers boasted the third-ranked offense in the NFL last season, the team finished 24th in rushing with 95.1 yards per game. Ronald Jones returns as the presumptive starter, though third-round pick Ke'Shawn Vaughn also could figure into the rotation, with McCoy likely adding depth.
