LeSean McCoy will partner with Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski after they have agreed to join the Buccaneers, said the veteran who runs the receding runner’s agent.
McCoy was a free agent after his release from the Chiefs, for whom the 11-year-old veteran was a healthy scratch for their Super Bowl 54 win over the 49ers. The six-time Pro Bowler, who had previously talked about returning to his original team, the Eagles, is now going to the Buccaneers for a one-year contract.
“He’s very excited to play with established vets like Brady and Gronk in an effort to win a new championship,” McCoy’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN.
McCoy averaged 4.6 yards per carry in 2019 – his best production in three seasons – but amassed just 465 rushing yards and four touchdowns, and his days as a feature film appear behind him.
The 32-year-old has six immersive 1,000-yard seasons, including four in six years with the Eagles, who fielded him in the second round in 2009.
