The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking more and more like the Lebron James’ Miami Heat, an aging team with a bunch of veteran contracts, as they keep adding help for Tom Brady.
On Thursday, the team reportedly signed veteran running back LeSean McCoy (31-years-old) to a one-year deal, giving the Bucs one more cheap, no risk, veteran player to help Tom Brady (at the age of 42) turn this franchise around.
“He’s very excited to play with established vets like Brady and Gronk in trying to win another championship,” his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said.
In 2019, McCoy recorded a career-low 101 carries for 465 yards. The Bucs are hoping they get the career “Shady” McCoy. In his career has rushed for 11,071 yards and 73 touchdowns, and is currently No. 22 on the NFL’s all-time rushing list.
With Mike Evans and Chris Godwin spreading out the defense and Gronk drawing double coverage, McCoy was the missing piece to spread out the defense, provide a balance attack and give Tom Brady more time to pick the defense apart.
