“He’s very excited to play with established vets like Brady and Gronk in trying to win another championship,” agent Drew Rosenhaus said.

According to Ian Rapoport, McCoy receives a one-year contract worth just over $1 million. 

McCoy received some interest from the Raiders earlier in the offseason and the Eagles also came up as a potential option. However, it appears as though the Buccaneers proved to be his best option in the end. 

McCoy, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Eagles back in 2009. After six years in Philadelphia, McCoy was traded to the Bills, who later signed him to a five-year, $40 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed.

McCoy was set to make base salaries of $6 million and $6.075 million over the next two years of the agreement when the Bills released him during the preseason. The Chiefs later signed him to a one-year deal. 

McCoy is an unrestricted free agent this offseason. 

In 2019, McCoy appeared in 13 games for the Cheifs and rushed for 465 yards on 101 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 28 receptions for 181 yards receiving and five touchdowns.
