Buccaneers sign RB LeSean McCoy

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed running back LeSean McCoy, the team announced on Tuesday.

According to his agent, it’s a one-year deal. 

McCoy, 32, a six-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro, ranks in the top 30 in NFL history in rushing yards (22nd, 11,071), yards from scrimmage (27th, 14,868), and rushing touchdowns (28th, 73).

Over 160 career games, including 141 starts, he has totaled 11,071 rushing yards and 73 rushing touchdowns on 2,447 career carries (4.5 avg.). 

The 12-year veteran has also been a factor in the passing game throughout his career, hauling in 503 receptions for 3,797 yards and 16 touchdowns. His 5.0 scrimmage yards per touch rank seventh in NFL history among players with at least 2,500 career touches.

Since entering the league in 2009, McCoy ranks second in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns, trailing only Adrian Peterson. Among running backs during that span, McCoy ranks second in receptions, third in receiving yards and fourth in receiving touchdowns. He also leads the league in both scrimmage yards (14,868) and first downs (550) since his debut season, while ranking second in scrimmage touchdowns with 89.

McCoy won a Super Bowl title with the Kansas City Chiefs last season, contributing 465 rushing yards (4.6 yards per carry) and five total touchdowns for the Chiefs in 2019.
