Tampa Bay bookmakers continue to help Tom Brady.
On Thursday, the team reportedly signed veteran, who ran away LeSean McCoy, for a one-year deal, according to Adam Shefter from ESPN.
“He is very happy to play with well-established veterinarians such as Brady and Gronk, trying to win another championship,”; said his agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Buffalo bills liberated McCoy last August, which saved them $ 6.425 million, according to Kevin Patra of NFL.com. He signed with Kansas city officials shortly thereafter.
Kansas City signed Carlos Hyde to help fill the void left by Karim Hunt, but he quickly played it. The chiefs unloaded it in trade to the Houston Texans, who cleared the way for McCoy’s arrival.
McCoy did not publish lavish numbers when he divorced Damien Williams, but he was productive in his limited role. He ran 465 yards and four touchdowns on 101 bows and caught 28 passes for 181 yards and one touchdown.
Among 45 running spins with at least 100 carriers, McCoy was 28th in DYAR (yards tuned for defense above the replacement), for Football outsiders.
Kansas City chose Clyde Edwards-Geller with the 32nd overall pick, which does not rule out the chance of a reunion with McCoy.
The average yard rate for McCoy transportation dropped from 4.0 in 2017 to 3.2 in 2018 before the bills continued. He is also the third active player in terms of total touch (2950), so he has a lot of mileage on the body.
By managing their workload, the bosses helped McCoy stay efficient. His 4.6 yards per shipment is his second since 2013, the latest of the All-Pro season.
This should be a plan for Bucs. He will compete with rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn to support Ronald Jones II, and Tampa Bay may be trying to expand his role in the ongoing game compared to his season in Kansas City.
Given Jones’ inconsistency in his young career, McCoy could have played a significant role for Buk.
